How to harmonize components across project boards


I am working to create a dashboard that can highlight themes across multiple project boards for my team. One way I am doing this is by using components to assign each issue into one of four major categories/themes. Across the project boards, I am setting up the components with the exact same language. 

When I create a pie chart gadget in my dashboard, it is not combining issues of the same component that come from different project boards. For example, any issues in board #1 with the component "assessment" are showing up as a separate piece of the pie than any issues in board #2 with the same component "assessment." I would like any issues with the component "assessment" to be shown as a single piece of the pie chart. 

I understand one solution would be to use labels that can tie across different project boards, but our team is using the label function for a different purpose, so that is likely not an option here. 

I appreciate any guidance on this! Thanks in advance!

Hi @Lindsay Cobb

Since you are using work management you may not be able to.  The system probably thinks they are all separate values.

You may have to move the tickets to a company based project and use a custom field to categorize  them.
