Dashboards in Azure DevOps

  • by

Dashboards are customizable interactive boards that provide latest and up-to date information about a project in Azure DevOps. A Dashboard can contain one or more widgets which can display various information about the workitems, repos, commits, build, release pipelines and testplans. This is very different from Boards which display only the workitem information and which is used for day to day tracking of the tasks, user stories in a project.

In a Dashboard, you can add interactive charts, widgets and some in-context reports to know more about the latest progress of an Azure DevOps Project.
