I would like to use a burndown chart to track tasks of projects.
Is there the template for burndown chart on Smartsheet?
There currently isn't a way to create a burndown chart in Smartsheet. Currently, Smartsheet relies on a Gantt chart to manage work and % completion. You can find more information on our dependencies functionality, which allows you to plan and track work and % completion to that work here: https://help.smartsheet.com/articles/765727-enabling-dependencies-using-predecessors
As burndown is typically used in the agile process, you might also check out our agile template.
When you have a moment please also submit a Product Enhancement Request using the form under Quick links on the right of the community site to let our Product team know you'd like to see burnchart functionality.
Submitted my request to the "Submit Product Enhancement Request." This is my first time using it. It will be interesting to see what that experience is like and how much communication, if any, if provided resulting from submitting an enhancement request.
I need this feature too. Customers of mine are requesting not only a burndown chart but also displaying it in dashboards.
Same - need a burndown to make backlog/sprint planning useful.
Any news on this function request?
Any updates on this function request?
I've been working on something similar - creating burnup and burndown charts with some predictive capabilities.
It's still a bit manual at the moment - you have to update your velocity manually (but am hoping to solve that). It's all built using standard smartsheets.
So it is doable, but depends on the exact needs I guess. This is pretty simple in terms of its modelling.
Can you share your solution??
@AnthroTim are you able to share your solution? We're also trying to create something similar. Thank you.
Hi @CrystalJ_Medtronic and @lcorazzini,
Sorry for the slow response I've been snowed under!
Yes - I can share the solution with you. There seems to be no nice way for me to do this - so the best option (I think) is to head to my blog and use the form at the bottom of the page to request access: https://anthrotechnic.com/blog/smartsheet-burnup-down/
I need a formula that will count the day that a row is "Open" but stop counting the days once its "Closed" both instances need to display the count. Here is a formula I was trying to use. Thanks =IF([Date Closed]@row > 0, ([Date Closed]@row - [Date Opened]@row), TODAY() - [Date Opened]@row)
I've been trying to do a simple check of whether or not the entry from the form has a returned value that is either yes or no and it checks 3 cell locations to see if any returned yes. The 3 columns are Dropdown lists for Yes/No and the Status is a Text/Number, is that the issues? If not how do i fix that?
I'm wondering if there is a way to lock rows 1-12 out of the sorting and filtering of a sheet. I might have take out that part of the from otherwise I dont like how the built in dashboard moves when a sort or filter is applied?
