Overview of Workitems

varun ibm (611722) | asked Oct 21 '13, 8:43 a.m.
Hello All,

As a PO for different project areas I would like to have an overview about all work items, plans, current and upcoming requirements regarding the systems and their future enhancements. Not yet planned requirements should be in a requirement pot from where the responsible product owners/scrum masters (need to be defined) are able to distribute the requirements to certain projects. 

Is something like this possible ? If not please suggest the possible solution to something similar.

the best way to have an overview of a project is the dashboard:

Please note you can populate it with widgets showing different reports: workitems, plans and so on.
You can also combine reports from a number of different projects on one dashboard

Thanks Aniola,

I am able to see the reports as you mentioned from different project areas.

However what I would like to know is if there is a way to have workitems from different project areas?
Or Query workitems from other project areas ??

Also tracking 3 or 4 child project from Main parent project areas ? I have heard a bit about cross project tracking but not sure if that might help as expected. we are in RTC 4.0

You cannot have a query that shows workitems from more than one project. This is one of the most popular requests:

Please note however, that you can have separate widgets on your dashboard (one per project area). Alternatively, you can write a custom Birt report that gathers data from more than one project area, and display this report (in a dashboard widget or otherwise).

Thanks again for the link. This will be a very good enhancement!!
