Monitoring BIM projects in graphs

Keep track of BIM project progress and workload

BIMcollab Cloud provides you with an overview of all issues in a project and the projects' progress, using a series of summary graphs.
To see these graphs, click 'Show graphs' on the Issues page of your project.



Users with a Connected or Enterprise plan can also get a graphic overview of all of their projects by clicking the 'Show graphs' button from the 'My projects' page.

They can also access the Graphs page of a specific project directly by clicking on the quick access menu.


Types of graphs

You may have several different types of graphs:
  1. Donut diagrams
    Show the proportion of problems to solve according to their properties like status, milestone, area, priority, or type.



  2. Bar charts
    Illustrate your project’s situation with more details. They present the number of the problems to solve (as well as their status) for each key parameter: such as issues per team member, per company, per milestone, per area, or other customized parameters.



  3. Line charts
    Provide insight into the time taken to close issues, the peaks of activities, and the evolution of issues’ amount over time.





Interactive graphs

Please note that all diagrams available here are interactive graphs. By simply clicking on the part that interests you, you will see more detailed data appearing on the pictures (for example, more information for a specific team member’s activity). 


Customizing the graphs

Customizing the graphs can be achieved in three ways:
 
  1. The settings button
    Through this button on the the Issues page,, you can access a list of Graphs settings, and can choose which graphs you want to show or not show. You can also choose whether the gridlines need to be active or not, and if multiple graphs may be shown next to each other.



Gridlines can be enabled or disabled for all graphics at the same time.
  1. With the issue filter
    You can specify which issues are to be shown in the graphs and which are not. For example, do not show the closed issues, or only show the issues for a certain milestone, etc.
    When the filter has been used within the Issues page, these chosen filter settings will also be applied on the graphs when turning to the Graphs page.



  2. By selecting your favorites
    By using the red, yellow and green labels, you can limit the graphs to only those issues which are part of these favorite groups.
