Assigned Users

LeanKit's step-by-step guide on how to access and view the Assigned Users chart. 

The Assigned Users chart shows the current distribution of cards within a board by assigned user. This allows you to evaluate assigned user information quickly to help determine if work is effectively allocated.

Here you'll learn how to:


View the Assigned Users chart 

To view a board’s Assigned Users chart, click the chart icon toward the upper-right of the board and choose Assigned Users.


The default Assigned Users chart will display the distribution of cards assigned to each user on the board. By default, cards in all lanes will be included in the chart.

Add and Remove Lanes

You may wish to view the chart without all the lanes included. Click Select Lanes to Include to open a simplified representation of the lane structure on the board. You can remove lanes from the chart by clicking on the lanes in the board lane selector. Deselected lanes will turn grey, and be excluded from the chart.

Lanes can be added back by clicking on the lane again. Any individual lane may be removed or you may remove all lanes underneath a parent lane by clicking on the parent lane.

Calculate Distribution based on Card Size

LeanKit allows you to specify the size value within a card. These size values may represent any metric that your team uses to specify relative size of the work item. These may be hours, days, story points, complexity points, or whatever unit of measurement that your team finds useful. If your team is using the size values to specify the relative size of each card, this metric may be more useful than the number of work items within a category. For these situations, LeanKit allows you to generate the Assigned Users chart based on the total size of the cards rather than the number of cards in a given category.

To enable the option, simply check the box next to  Calculate based on Card Size.  The graph will now calculate the work in progress based on the size specified within the card. Note that any work items that do not have a size specified or have a size of 0 (zero) will be considered with a size of 1 (one) when calculating size.
