3.4. Project Home

When you click on either the “Project Home” tab or the name of the project in the “My Page” project list, you will be taken to the homepage of the specific project in question:

This page summarizes all of the information regarding the project into a comprehensive, easily digestible form that provides a “one-stop-shop” for people interested in understanding the overall status of the project at a glance. It contains summary-level information for all types of artifact (requirements, test cases, incidents, etc.) that you can use to drill-down into the appropriate section of the application. In addition to viewing the project home page, you can choose to filter by a specific release, to get the homepage for just that release (and any child iterations).

In a similar manner to the ‘My Page’, the Project Home dashboard is initially loaded in ‘view mode’ which means that the various ‘widgets’ on the page are displayed with minimum visual clutter (no toolbars or control icons) that makes it easy to scan the items on the page and see the health of the status of the project at a glance. To switch the page to ‘edit mode’, you should click on “Modify Layout/Settings” hyperlink.

When you load your ‘Project Home’ for the first time it will consists of the following main elements:

  • Project Overview
  • Shared Searches
  • Requirements Summary
  • Requirements Coverage
  • Release Task Progress
  • Requirements Graphs
  • Task Graphs
  • Late Finishing Tasks
  • Top Open Issues
  • Top Open Risks
  • Test Execution Status
  • Release Test Summary
  • Incident Summary
  • Incident Open Count
  • Requirement Incident Count

However these are not the only widgets available. If you click on the “Add/Remove” items hyperlink it will display the list of any additional widgets that are available:

You can add the additional widgets by selecting the appropriate checkbox, choosing the destination location (left side vs. right side) and then click the [Add] button. The additional widgets available in the Project Home dashboard are:
