The Throughput app displays a count of work items accepted in a given interval such as weeks, months, quarters.


The chart displays the number of accepted work items for the specified time period. If defects are displayed on the chart, both defects associated to user stories and standalone defects that have been accepted will be included. However, if a defect is associated to an accepted user story , but the defect itself is not accepted, it will not be counted.

Data displayed in the app is in the same format as the Throughput chart. Select the chart to go to the Reports tab , where you may view additional information including a key and summary metrics.

Note: The data roll up for the Throughput chart occurs at the end of the time period, while the legend label indicates the beginning of the time period. You will not see data for a time period while it is still being collected.

To control data displayed in the chart:
  1. From the app gear menu, select Settings.
