    For clarification, the red parts of the graph... do they show issues which are still unresolved (eg. an issue 3 weeks ago is still open today), or issues that were not resolved in the time period (eg. an issue 3 weeks ago only got resolved last week)?

      The red is issues that were created on that day in the graph, but still unresolved as of now. Green are issues created on that day but have since been resolved.

    Is it possible to use this gadget to display a bar chart showing resolved issues based on the dates in a date custom field instead of the created dates?
