Known Issues - Reporting (Beta)

Legacy Reports vs New Reports (Beta) in the UI 

Currently, new reports are available in sandboxes only, where you can view the new report module AND leave the legacy reports active. Remember users must have permission to view at least one report in order to see the new Reports (Beta) in the navigation - easiest thing is to create a global permissions profile and grant at least Reports > View permission to the appropriate users/groups/units.

When both report "modules" are active in your environment, you will see two report navigation icons in the toolbar. Hover your cursor over each icon - you will see one labeled "Reports" (the legacy reports), and one labeled "Reports (Beta)" (the new reports). See the screenshot below:

The "reports" icon will take you to the legacy reports UI; the "Reports (Beta)" icon will take you to the new reports UI. 

When the new reports are available for use in production (while still Beta), we will leave the legacy reports active as well, unless you specifically ask us to disable them. If you have a sandbox, both the legacy and the new reports will be enabled by default. 

At some point in the future (with plenty of notice), the legacy reports will be deprecated.

Known Issues

October Release

  1. IE11 is not supported for Reports/Dashboards (Beta).
  2. Summary Tasks, which are currently represented as a special entity, are being removed (they were already removed from the Topic list, now they are removed from the field path). Instead, summary tasks will be implied/identified by the relationship "project > task" (a task whose parent is the project), or can be identified using a filter for  "Is Summary Task=is Yes".
  3. All Time Series reports will use Monthly as the default. Existing reports that use a time interval will be reset to Monthly - you'll have to edit your report and change the interval if you used something other than Monthy. Sorry for the inconvenience.
  4. The Team Member report topic is not working correctly - please ignore for now.

September Release

  1. (IE11 only) System dates, such as Create Date and Last Modified Date, are not returning values.
  2. The Team Member report topic is not working correctly - please ignore for now.
