In widgets such as Item status, you can set the parameters such that it drills down the data accordingly. For example, you want to plot the tickets raised as per the version number. Then, you want to further drill down as per the ticket status (closed/ open). Finally, you want to further narrow down the ticket priority to Medium.  You can drill down even further to get the exact ticket Ids.

Once you click on the data to drill it down, it shows the data in the list view. If there are multiple types of the workitem in the data, then a list view of all workitem types is generated similar to Execution Board listing along with the All Types list. You can modify any value (row-level editing) in the list view of a specific workitem type by directly clicking the value and entering the new value. Once you modify the values, click the Refresh icon to see the updated list of values.

Note: The row level editing is not allowed in the All Types list.

Analytics Drill Down

Drill Down Analytics

Note: The same drill-down level persisted across the sessions.


Similar to performing a drill down on a chart, you can further filter down the results pertaining to a detailed category in the table form. When the drill-down is done from a table format, it is termed pivoting.  To pivot the required data, select the table/ chart toggle icon to switch to table format. Then click on the underlined data, to further drill down the information until you get a list of required items.
