You can use Jama Connect filters to track the trend of items that meet certain criteria, such as requirements with a "status" of "done".

Before you build an item count metric, you must have created the filter you want to use in Jama Connect and imported your data into Jama Analyze.

  1. Select Jama Connect from the menu bar on the left, then select Item count.
