    In the latest update I see that there is now a traditional burn-down graph based on hours of work remaining.  That's helpful but we would like to see that style of burn-down added to the dashboard.
    More background. 

    The concept of using story points for burn-down seems unique to Telerik.  We can find no other examples of it on the Internet in the SCRUM community anyway.  For a lot of Agile teams, sprints involve only a few stories - sometimes only 1 - per iteration.  With the Telerik dashboard burn-down chart, you see no progress until the story is complete and marked done.  The idea behind a burndown is to track progress for the team and client project managers.  On our 3-week sprints containing one or two stories, we see no progress at all until the last couple of days of the sprint when the stories are completed.  Are others finding burn-downs based on story points useful?  Are we just old school Agile?

    Hello Tim,

     In the backlog for our next release we have an epic story to make dashboard customizable and a concrete one to allow user to choose from various widgets. I will specifically add tasks burn-down charts as requested.

    As regards to the story burn-down, sometimes we do not see mush progress in the beginning of the iteration either, but we try to keep our stories small. For example, for a two week iteration we have about eight to ten stories, trying to produce working and testable features as soon as possible.

    Your feedback is always appreciated. If you have some other questions or suggestions do not hesitate to ask.

    Best wishes,

    Yes! That goes for me too!

    I want an easy way to se "work remaining" in both Task board, Story board (Sum of reamining work of tasks) and Dashboard (Sum)

    Hi Aslak,

     We are releasing R3 this week and I am happy to announce that burndown by tasks' work remaining will be available on the dashboard.
     We are going to implement time tracking in the near future, so eventually you will see changes on Story and Task board at some time. Meanwhile do not hesitate to contact us and share your ideas and needs on the topic.

    All the best,
