Average Age Report

The 'Average Age' report is a bar chart showing the average age (in days) of unresolved issues at given points in time. The report is based on your choice of project or issue filter, and your chosen units of time (ie. hours, days, weeks, months, quarters or years).

    I would like to see the same report broken down by task. Task EXA-101 took X number of days (between date created and date where the status is closed)
