Card Metrics

In this article


  1. Open a card by clicking it
  2. Click the first tab on the left top see the Card Metrics


Once the Card Metrics tab is open you see the metrics organized in three sections:

  • Lead Time tracks the time a card stays in a blue Backlog or Start column (not in WIP yet).
  • Cycle Time tracks the time a card stays in a yellow In Progress or orange Buffer column (WIP).
  • Total Time tracks the time a card took from the time it was created to when it entered a green Done column.

The time includes all days (week and weekend), so if a card was created on Tuesday at 9am and completed the following week on Tuesday 9am, then it will show a total time of 7 days.
