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

January Release

  1. In the List:Stacked report output, the Actions menu is empty (missing the various export options).
  2. Resources that are not in the Internal Costs group can create and run a resource report that show internal rates for all resources.
  3. The Team Member report topic is not working correctly - please ignore for now.
  4. The Actions > Run Task Report option from the task grid runs legacy reports.
  5. When reporting on a project whose currency is different than the Org currency, the results use the Org currency even when report is scoped to Project.

Note: IE11 is not supported for Reports/Dashboards (Beta). Support for IE11 generally ends March 31, 2021.
