The Single Value widget in the Report view allows users to visualize data in a very simple way. It's basically the sum or average of cards in your boards that are within a filter.

When Single Value is useful for your projects

Single Value widgets are very direct and help you display a specific number, like the total number of tasks completed. That is, the count of cards on a board but filtered by status.

They can be very powerful when combined with other single value widgets. You could show the number of completed cards next to the total number of cards, so you can compare and see how much of the work is done.

These are effective ways to get an overview of a project just by looking at the indicators that are most relevant to the purpose of the report.

Examples of Single Value

There can be many ways to use Single Value, such as:

  • Completed cards (filtered by completed cards)

  • Tasks assigned to me (filter by myself as a member)

  • Cards due this month (filtered by due date)

  • Total remaining workload (effort as a value and filter non completed cards)
