Show the workflow status on insights


We have a monorepo for our front end. After putting it on CI as a workflow with multiple jobs involved, it shows a green project status however the workflow as a whole is failed. My guess is that's happening because the insights screen shows the status of the build instead of the status of a workflow.

Is there a way to display a status of the workflow on the Insights screen?

    The insights tab is totally useless once you adopt workflows.  I also have a mono-repo on Circle CI running in a workflow, and the "average run-time" shown in insights is 18 minutes.  I believe this is calculated on individual job run times, but the complete workflow run is typically 24 - 35 minutes (as shown from the Workflows tab). 

    I love the idea of insights so that I can see how efficiently my workflow is running but it's not doing any good as it is.

    As with Steve, we have a mono repo with a mixture of frontend, middleware, and backend services. Some services take 1 minute to build, others take 4 to 5. All services have additional testing jobs, and some times deployment jobs. I really don't care about individual build times for jobs, but rather, I care about total time to completion of the workflow. I would love if I could easily see that metric from the Insights tab.
