The "Times Explorer" page allows you to filter and group fields within your existing tracked time data in a more concise but in-depth way. Each column header within the "Times Explorer" table contains different fields in its dropdown list (for example, the "Month" column header contains the calendar months in the dropdown in which you logged time). By clicking on the grouping symbol () in the top-right corner of each column header, you can add the column - and subsequently, the fields - you want to group, in the details panel below. The column you group first is the top-level group, and every subsequent grouped column then displays one level below that. You can then get a filtered snapshot of the number of rows and the totals within each group that you create.
1. In the "Times Explorer" table, hover your mouse pointer over the top-right corner of the column header you want to be the top-level group.
2. Click the Add group icon -> The page filters and displays the time details of just that column, grouped accordingly (In this example, below, the various "Work Item Types" are grouped according to "Product Backlog Item", "Task", and "User Story".).
Note: You can group time details only for the fields that display the "Add group" () icon by the column header. You can group your time details for multiple fields by clicking the respective column headers. Once you group the time details of a specific column, the field names in the column header display the icon without you having to hover over it.
3. (Optional) Click the group header icon () to expand the group and view the time records in that group.
4. (Optional) Click the group header icon () to collapse group and hide the time records in that group.
5. (Optional) Click the Remove Filters button or simply click the grouping ( again to remove the grouping and display all tracked time details in the table.
