In the Burndown Chart, it is displayed the Scheduled duration (in hours) that the Project will last with the blue line and how these hours should be minimized as the days are passing by. With the red line, we see the Tasks that have been set and how smoothly they have reduced the remaining workload in hours.

  1. Finally, you can check the pie-chart that gives the number of hours spent by Division (Hours per Division). Also, a pie-chart that gives the amount of Income earned by Division (Income per Division).

Hours per Division are calculated based on the Approved Hours of People working in your Project and are members of different Divisions. Whether these Hours were chargeable or not, Income is populated inside the Project’s Income tab.
