Tabular Report with Detailed Time List: add Custom Columns based on Metrics

It is possible to extend the default set of available columns in tabular reports of detailed time list with your custom choices. Calculated values can be obtained from numeric and text system custom fields and populated by Custom formula Metrics.

These custom columns are helpful when fields and properties important for you are missing in list of options available on Columns tab and cannot be added within Summary Columns.

Custom Fields are available for selection only when a tabular report is based on single process. In tabular reports based on All Processes Custom Fields cannot be shown.

Entity Type

It is possible to add column with names of types of work items. Calculated names are obtained from a text custom field added to the Time entity.
