Assignments report

Assignments report helps you keep track of your tasks by comparing the assignments you’ve scheduled with the time you’ve actually spent on them. This article will show you how to use assignment reports effectively so that you can easily manage your workload.

This is an extra feature available to all users when upgrading a workspace to a Pro or Enterprise plan.

Assignments report might come in handy in the following case: 

Let’s say that as a project manager you are overseeing a software development project with multiple assigned tasks and team members. You check the Assignments report for the past month to compare scheduled assignments with the actual tracked time by your development team. The report reveals that certain tasks took longer than initially estimated. With this insight, you can identify areas for improvement, like refining task estimates, adjusting project timelines, or redistributing workload.

Keep in mind that in order to see the report, Scheduling needs to be enabled in the Workspace settings. 

To do that:

  1. Navigate to the workspace name at the top of the page
  2. Open the menu and choose the Workspace settings
  3. Find the Scheduling section in the General tab
  4. Toggle the switch to Activate project and team scheduling 
  5. Optionally, enable the Regular users can see everyone’s assignments option

Now that you’ve enabled Scheduling, you can check out the Assignments report:

  1. Go to the Reports in the sidebar
  2. Choose the Assignments from the dropdown

Assignments report displays: 

  • Total scheduled time for published assignments
  • Total tracked time 
  • Difference between scheduled and tracked time 
  • Performance column with progress bar

The results on the page can be grouped on three levels based on the entities you choose. 

Group entries #

When you’re analyzing the Assignments report, you have the option to group entries in three levels. As a result, the report will organize the data based on the intersection of these criteria and the total hours tracked by users within those groups.

  • First level of grouping: User, Group, Client, Month, Week, or Date
  • Second level of grouping: Project, Task, Client, Group, Month, Week, or Date
  • Third level of grouping: Task, Group, Month, Week, or Date

For example, you might choose to first group your Attendance report by Project, then within each project, group by Task, and finally, within each task, further divide by Date.

Project > Task > Date

In the Attendance report, this grouping look like this:

You can also filter the results by date in the date picker, team (users and groups), client or project and export them in CSV/Excel format.

If you, for instance, group by User or Group, you’ll get available and scheduled hours and, in that way, can determine user’s availability for the selected date range.

Export Assignments report #

If you’d like to obtain the Assignments report and distribute it in CSV or Excel format to subject matter experts, relevant parties, or internally in your company, you can do that from the Assignments report page.

  1. At the top right corner of the page, click the Export button to expand dropdown
  2. Choose preferred format CSV/Excel

The report will be downloaded and saved on your computer.

The grouping options affect the way your exports look. For example, if you group by project, further group by task and finally group by date, that’s the way data will be grouped in the export, as well.
