Burn down charts and other reports aggregating all projects RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, in Project professional 2013, there're several nice reports for individual projects. For example, the Project Overview Dashboard report shows a burn down chart, and much more. Are there similar reports in Project Online, not for individual projects, but for all projects? Ideally we're looking for Power View or Pivot reports. For instance, at first the aggregated data from all projects are displayed. But the user can use Power View's filter capability to show data from individual (or multiple) projects.

    Currently we're looking for 4 kinds of reports:

    Static status: Such as how many projects, tasks, remaining works, costs, are there at this particular moment. Drill down information may be required. For example, select a specific project and view its data.

    Differential status: Difference since the last report period, such as how many new tasks were added in the previous week, how much revenue was earned, etc.

    Evolution status: Such as how does cost and revenue change over time, within this year, how well are tasks burned down over time, etc. This may leverage a nice Power View bubble chart with animations.

    Variance reports: Such as the variance between predicted work and actual work, predicted cost and actual cost, etc.

    We don't mind to create our own reports if we have to. But I'd like to know if there're any good templates. Thanks for any suggestions.

  • Hello,

    You will still have the Project Pro reports (per project) with Project Online with Project Pro 2013. You also get 3 example web based reports:

    Project Overview Dashboard
    Project Overview
    Resource Overview

    These are in the Report library on the ProjectBICenter site. Other reports you will need to create yourself / purchase from a 3rd party.

  • Thanks. I've seen the 3 sample reports. But they're a bit too simple. Guess we'll have to create our own. Do you know any good sample reports available on the internet, so we can use for reference? Thanks.
