When starting with the Allocated Role topic you will need to select the field path Allocated Role > Project to get to the project available fields. For example:
Enter and select desired Display options, such as:
|You can of course adjust the number of months as well as select something other than months (refer to the Variable Settings Time Series options below).|
Set desired Time Series options, providing filters and dates as possible to reduce the time it takes to render the report and cover the desired time period, such as:
Scope: Select one or more Scopes if you want the report to be available to be run from that report grid(s)
Filters: Any allocated role filters, such as for specific project categories
Time Series: Select a Frequency and Date Range appropriate to your report needs, such as Frequency of "Monthly" with Date Range "is next NNN months" with value "3"
Selecting a Scope will cause this report to be available on that entity Report grid so it can be run per the organization.
As needed, you can also include Role or Allocated Role Filters.
If you want to allow the user to change to a different Scope and/or Filter before running the report or when viewing the report, select the relevant checkboxes for Allow changing.
