Detailed Time Spent reports by User Story with Tasks and Bugs | Targetprocess - Visual management software

Detailed Time Spent reports by User Story with Tasks and Bugs

With Time Tracking practice enabled, Targetprocess users post actually spent time against various entities. Users submit Time records for User Stories, Tasks and Bugs. User Stories in Targetprocess include Tasks and Bugs, and project managers are interested in detailed reports with all the records grouped per user story. In Targetprocess it is possible to build detailed time report with proper grouping.

Detailed time reports are based on Times data source and operate with lists of time spent records. Time entities have predefined and custom data fields. The fields are used for reporting, grouping, and filtering. In Time records submitted to Tasks and Bugs there are no prefefined fields having reference to user stories. To build time reports with distribution per parent entity use custom calculations based on custom formula metrics or Visual Reports calculations.

Custom calculations for Visual Reports are configured and modified by any Targetprocess user (report owner). To get calculated totals displayed in other places but reports: detailed views and legacy tabular reports, set up custom formula metrics. They are configured and modified by Administrators only.
