In JA, the Strategic Driver Allocation pie charts gave me an idea, but I don't know if JA can accommodate it. Any help is greatly appreciated!
Is it possible to generate a pie chart --or any sort of metric-- based upon the tags added to a work item?
I envision running the Strategic Driver Allocation report, but getting another report that allows me to more specifically differentiate what kind of work is being done inside of that Strategic Driver so that I have greater awareness of where my teams' capacity is allocated.
Is this possible?
There currently aren't reports that work off tags. There are at least two options:
1. Export the Features from Align, and create your own reports in Excel or Numbers using pivot tables.
2. Leo, the BI database available with Align, would have this information. So you could use your own reporting tool (PowerBI, Tableau, Excel) to create the custom reports that you're looking for.
(I'm sure there are other options, but these are the two that leap to mind.)
I'm happy to report that I'm happy :)
We ran the exports against stories, etc. (more on that in a minute), built a pivot, create V lookups, and lo and behold we have a treasure trove of data that is quite astonishing. So, thank you for the insightful help @Rich Sparks and @Shawn Kessler

Thank you again; I truly appreciate the fantastic help!
Hi @Corey King --glad to hear you are happy :)
For your first bullet point, you are correct with your understanding of the export function.
It seems like you are already familiar with the WIP Report:
and the Trace Report:
Can you be more specific about the type of report you are requesting? I can always bring Product Management into the discussion if needed. Maybe @Rich Sparks has some suggestions?
OK, let's circle back to my response to dig a bit into where I was going with respect to more in-depth data interpretation and ideas for the JA product roadmap.
Here's where my head's at: The tool is used by coaches, teams, product, program and portfolio leaders, etc. and thus the type of reporting must vary greatly; however, all of my recommendations use existing data and/or functionality but in a new way:
If anywhere above I've mentioned a capability already available, please let me know. I may be unfamiliar with existing functionality, or my org may have toggled off some functionality (I know that some has been).
@Shawn Kessler and @Rich Sparks thanks for the ongoing chat, responding to my queries, and humoring my ideas. If you like, I can end this thread. If you have questions, comments, etc., happy to take it offline -- my profile has my contact info should you need it. Just let me know. And thanks again!
Hi ! I wanted to add to this. We gather metrics of how much time is spent by developers during Sprints, broad scale, epics with tempo, and we tie our epics all the way down to Sprints to specific clients by way of labels. We utilize the above views, however, our team is trying to compare how much time specific teams, or even more granular, specific developers contribution to specific clients. Is there a current view or a way to create this view?
There are a number of different reports that show progress in the PI, and each support slightly different perspectives. There's the Program Increment Progress report, where you can look at burndowns or burnups for the story and feature level. Here you can drill into specific epics or teams, but it gives you an idea if you're on track to have those work items all accepted by the end of the PI.
You might also look at the Program Tracking report (contact your Align administrator if it is not available in the Program menu.)
It shows the status of all the work objects you have, including epics, objectives, dependencies and so on. This view below just shows the state of epics and features (capabilities aren't enabled in this portfolio.) If you're midway through a PI, this view might be acceptable. If you're nearing the end of the PI, this view is quite pessimistic.
The Program Increment Cleanup Report shows how much work is remaining. This report is really useful as you're starting planning for the next PI, as it shows you what might need to be moved.
And, of course, the Program Board gives a great view of how all the features and dependencies are coming together for your program and teams.
