Hello all,

in my dashboard in project area A I want to visualize the status of individual EWM items of some other project area B.
Is this possible? How can I do that?
Thanks a lot!

 Peter, dashboards are not limited to one application or project area. You can add any widget you want and configure the widget for the application/project area you want. E.g. you can configure a widget for work item queries in another project area. Or you could run a requirements view in a dashboard on CCM or JTS.

Just create a dashboard, select add widget, select the application for the widget, select the widget and add it. Then configure the widget. Select the project area and whatever it requires.

To get the status, configure a Work Items widget with a query and select the status as additional icon.

Thanks Ralph, this is the key:

I have to cross PA boundaries not within a query (which is not possible as queries can  only access items of the same Project Area)
I rather have to cross PA boundaries within the widget of my dashboard:

Step 1) I have to create the query in PA B that lists all the items I am interested in.
Step 2) I configure that very query of PA B in the widget of my dashboard in PA A.
Result: I can see the workflow items of PA B in my dashboard in PA A.
