Time Series

Time series, which are part of the Advanced Settings of the Rich Filters, are collections of data points based on your issues’ date fields. For instance, the number of created issues on day 1, 2, 3 and so on, for the past month. The values for the data points may be issue counts or values computed from issue fields. 

Documentation: Configuring Time Series

Use the Rich Filters Time Series Chart gadget and the Rich Filters Statistics gadget to display time series

The time series can be displayed as line charts with the Rich Filter Time Series Chart gadget, or as tables with the Rich Filter Statistics gadget. Series on their own can point out trends; but, they are more powerful when plotted together. Comparing series can hint at correlations between events affecting your activity.
