    We have 3 teams working on a release, and they are currently working on iteration 1.  As recommended by your folks, we created 3 separate iteration 1 for each team (i.e. Iteration 1 - Team A, Iteration 1 - Team B, and Iteration 1 - Team C).  

    The structure we have is:
          Iteration 1
                Iteration 1 - Team A
                Iteration 1 - Team B
                Iteration 1 - Team C

    On the dashboard we can see the burndown chart for each team by iteration, which is good.  However, management would like a view one burndown that would aggregate the data for all 3 teams.  Is this possible? 

    In Analysis, I know I can go to generate Burndown by stories, and select "Iteration 1" and check "include child iterations", which will give me the aggreagate for the 3 team; however management prefers to see this on the dashboard.

    Unfortunately, there is no way to aggregate iterations on the dashboard as you suggest. However, instead of using 3 different iterations, one per team, you could have all teams work in the same iteration and use the Team field on the Story or Bug to assign items to teams. But, if you do it this way, you would lose the per team burndowns. You may have already considered doing this. We use this approach for the 2 teams on the TeamPulse project. It works quite well for us as we feel the overall cross-team iteration burndown to be the most important.

    All the best,

    Thanks for your reply.  I did consider what you suggested previously, and may still consider it and see what works best.  However, is it possible to put this in as a feature request?  As mentioned, if I go to the your Analysis/Reporting area I can generate a story burndown and select include child iterations, which does provide the information I'm looking for.  It's just that it would be nice for management to see this report on the dashboard rather than them having to go generate the report in analysis.
