Using dashboards with a project area with multiple timelines

Chris Ratcliffe (2633330) | asked Sep 08 '11, 1:44 p.m.

I am having problems setting up dashboard report widgets, because when I go to alter the specific iterations that the report should apply to, it is only giving me a few old archived iterations, and not the ones I expect.

My project areas is setup to have:

1. A timeline with a set of iterations,
2. A category, and
3. A Team Area

for each of a set of tools my team develops. I have linked them all together in the Process Configuration tool, and that seems to be working correctly.

However, when I go to make use of a dashboard report widget for one of the tools, the setting for the report show me all of the team areas, so I can select the right team area, however, the iteration choices are not what I expect. I expect it to show either all of the iterations for all of the timelines, or even better, just the iterations for the timelines corresponding to the team area I am trying to use.

Can anyone please shed some light on what I am doing wrong, or point me to some documentation on this.

I forgot to take into account that the Data Warehouse used to generate the reports only refreshes once a day. Once I waited for the refresh, my selections in the reports and charts showed all of the new iterations.
