Tech Tip: How to set up trend graphs
Here is a nifty tech tip about how to set up trend graphs and productive alerts in GroundWork. While this feature has been around awhile, we decided to dust it off since we still get questions about it. We like it for its simplicity and elegant understandability. Using this simple method, you can take any graphed metric and do a least-squares regression trend line on it. Then set thresholds for how soon you predict you’ll be in trouble. How’s that for being proactive?
