The Two Dimensional Filter Statistics gadget displays statistical data based on a specified issue filter, in a configurable table format.

For example, you could create a filter to retrieve all open issues in a particular project. You can then configure the gadget to display the statistical data on this collection of issues, in a table with configurable axes — e.g. Assignee versus Issue Type.
