Trendbox reports

Trendbox reports visualize the distribution of data for a specific time period.

A trendbox report is similar to a box report, but it also allows you to specify a time period for the report. When defining the report, use a descriptive title that indicates the use of the time period. Use trendbox reports when you have multiple small data sets from different sources that are related to each other. Examples include incident resolution times for different product features, or incident resolution times for different priorities.

For example, a trendbox report can show incident resolution duration for high priority incidents by support employee. Suppose every support employee handles P1 incidents, but you know that the time it takes to resolve each P1 incident varies. A trendbox report would show, by employee, the longest and shortest resolution times, and a grouping with the most common or closely clustered resolution times. With this information, you can compare resolution times by employee, or you can use the information to estimate future support staffing levels.
