Display project burn up/down via a convenient Mashup Widget.
Long term projects need to be managed. As a project is scoped, requirements get defined and delivery-timeframes are estimated. As work is done, requirements are completed.
One way to track this project progress is with a Waterfall Chart.
This guide will show you how to utilize a Waterfall Chart Widget to easily display the project workflow.
In this scenario, we'll store the Waterfall Chart's data in a Property type called an Info Table.
An Info Table is a spreadsheet-like Property, but in order to define the columns of the table, we first have to define a Data Shape. We'll do that in this step.
In the Name field, type amount.
Now that we have our Data Shape, we can create a Thing to document the project progress over time.
As already mentioned, we'll use an Info Table Property, formatted by the previously-created Data Shape, to do so.
Now that we have our Thing instantiated, we want to add an Info Table Property.
Now that we have a place in which to store spreadsheet-like values, we'll do so manually for testing.
Now that we have our data in-place for testing (and could be connected to automated systems after we finish testing), we need to visualize the data.
As mentioned, we'll use a Waterfall Chart Widget, but first, we need to create a Mashup into which we can place the Widget.
