Burn Down Chart

The current burn down chart doesn't give me what I would expect from a burn down chart.

The definition of this type of chart is:

A burn down chart is a graphical representation of work left to do versus time. The outstanding work (or backlog) is often on the vertical axis, with time along the horizontal. That is, it is a run chart of outstanding work. It is useful for predicting when all of the work will be completed.

The current one offered in Clarizen only plots the remaining work for today i.e. there is no plotting the remaining work until the remaining work is 0 as expected to see when all the work will be complete in relation to the ideal burn down bar..

I believe what you described is exactly how the current chart works. The total outstanding work (remaining effort) for the work item you select is on the vertical axis and time is on the horizontal axis. The work is plotted on a daily basis, but the chart is not retroactive--meaning if it was just enabled today it will only have one day of data. The green bar is a straight-line "ideal" burndown. If you are above the green line then you are behind the ideal burn down of hours and if you are below then you are ahead of plan.
