Project Status Reports
BrightWork includes live up-to-the-minute reports, but what if you wanted to review the project status from a week ago or a month ago? BrightWork includes a capability that enables you to capture a snapshot of the current project status and maintain a historical record of the project’s progress.
Project status reporting in BrightWork is now better than ever. The templates now include a new list type, Project Status Report, which features a new column mapping feature that makes it easy to bring in data from your project statement, project metrics, or the previous status report. Whereas before you might have had to delve into SharePoint Designer to customize your status reports, now everything is just a few clicks away.
Live dashboards provide a real-time summary of key project metrics and KPIs so you instantly see what is happening on your project.
Project Metric Dashboards
The Project Metrics list enables you to track and capture metrics relating to the project. Project metrics are important because they give you and the other project stakeholders an easy, objective and scientific way of measuring the progress of the project, and also the grounds with which to make important decisions as to the direction and scope of the project.
The BrightWork Project Metrics list tracks and captures project metrics (e.g. number of red issues; Project Health; the number of overdue items) relating to the project and feeds this information to reports, charts and KPI web parts.
‘My Work’ Reports
Every user has a ‘My Work’ report that shows them all their assigned work, work due soon and overdue work.
Metrics scorecards show an attractive summary project metric trends have been over time to help predict the future. You can choose which metrics to display, change the time intervals and update look and feel to better suit your projects and context.
Senior executives, project managers and team members can all create personal views of any report, including creating report filters that work across multiple projects.
The Project Schedule Gantt displays all the items from a project in a structured hierarchical Gantt. In the Project Office template, there is a high-level project Gantt that gives senior executives a snapshot of all projects in that portfolio.
