Hi,

the graph on the right shows the number of tasks (ALL tasks, not only milestones!) over time. It has two lines, one for tasks in progress (blue) and one for tasks that are complete (orange).

When you start adding progress to the project  and set more and more tasks to 100% complete, you will see that the orange line (for complete tasks) will cover the blue one.

How would you describe the blue line going down to 0? On the y-axis, are those numbers hours? Thx

No, it is the NUMBER of tasks (Count) at any given time on the x axis.

I see so with time, obviously, those tasks will decrease. That makes sense.
