WorkItemExplorer is an interactive environment to visually explore data from software development tasks. It enables developers and managers to investigate activity and correlations in their task management system by making data exploration flexible and interactive, and by utilizing multiple coordinated views.
The video shows an example use case for WorkItemExplorer by exploring who is working on "important" work items at the moment. Task importance can be defined in many different ways, and an exploratory tool, such as WorkItemExplorer, can be used to understand the implications of different approaches. To explore important work items and their owners, we open up two bar charts, and then drag all of the work items onto both of them. We then group one bar chart by priority, and the other one by severity, and we drag the bars that we are interested in into a third view, such as a text view. Here, we drag the bars corresponding to high priority and major as well as critical severity. If we now group the text view by work item owner, we get a list of all people working on important work items, and we can continue to explore their workload in more detail. In addition, this configuration allows us to immediately explore the relationship between severity and priority of work items in our data set. When mousing over major severity in the bar chart in the right, through partial highlighting, we can see how work items with major severity are distributed across the different priorities in the bar chart on the left.
