The Iteration report is a big-picture overview of the progress made in a specific iteration. You can see the day-to-day pace in terms of story acceptance or stories added to scope, how progress compares to the previous iteration, and how the overall project health indicators were impacted, such as a cycle time increase in an iteration.
The iteration report also shows how much progress was made toward the next release, as well as in-progress epics. You can see how the team’s work distributes across epics, and view a list of in-progress stories from this iteration.
There are several things you can do with this chart:
See an overview of progress made in a given iteration (current is the default).
Find out how the team impacted the numbers—did they get more done this iteration than the previous one? Did cycle time go up or down?
Visualize day-to-day pace within each iteration via the embedded burnup and state flow diagram, and compare to the “ideal pace.”
Investigate any mid-iteration point scope increase.
See how much progress was made during this iteration toward the completion of the next release and/or in-progress epics.
See which epics and labels had the most work done on them.
Get story-level detail on what was started, finished, accepted, etc.
