What are Insights?

Once your projects are connected to Keypup, it's time to handle your first dashboards and thus to manipulate Insights.

Insights are the backbone of Keypup. They allow you to expose and contextualize data imported from your projects. They come in many forms and each type of insight allows you to visualize information differently.

Keypup provides you with configurable Insights templates to get you started faster, and also allows you to create Insights from scratch (Blank Templates).

Insight categories on Keypup

Keypup offers 4 categories of insights: Charts, Reports/Tables, KPIs and Cards.


It is a graphical representation of data. You can use charts to visually explore a topic, compare data, and contextualize various events in a way tables or raw data hardly bring to light.

Keypup offers several families of Charts:

  • Area Chart (classic, stacked)

  • Bar Chart (classic, stacked)

  • Column Chart (classic, stacked)

  • Cycle-time Chart

  • Gauge Chart

  • Heatmap

  • Line Chart (classic, 2-dimensional)

  • Pie Chart

Reports (Tables)

This is a representation of data in a spreadsheet-like form. Reports allow you to simply list records in a dataset, deepdive on a specific topic and compare values, or display data by categories. They are a streamlined and efficient way to see data sorted or run comparisons.

Building process of reports is similar to Charts.


It is a measure of performance given in the form of a figure, optionally associated with a trend chart. KPIs are used to study trends and evolution, compare them to your objectives, and help you in the decision-making by correlating results over a period to decisions taken

Keypup provides 5 types of KPIs:

  • KPI with trend

  • KPI with sparkline

  • KPI with cycle-time chart

  • KPI with column chart

  • Plain KPI


Cards are “project management-like” listings for you and your team to follow the state or progress of any part of a project. They aim to display all items that match dedicated filters, based on your development or task management tools (Jira, Trello, ClickUp, Github..).

They come in two forms:

  • Cards feed are a single column of cards and are used to follow a list of issues and/or pull requests matching the conditions specified in your filters (e.g. assigned to me, open and overdue, security issues etc..)

  • Boards are made of multiple columns used to follow a development process (e.g. Agile board where cards go from left to right) or to split cards into topical categories (e.g. severity 1 to severity 4 bugs)
