Project Status Reporting

Our users are complaining that there is no way to do good status reporting in PPM. It's not so much the % complete or costs, but the textual status - e.g. accomplishments, plans for next week, etc.

 

Has anyone come up with a good way to handle this? We have status fields, but that's doesn't seem to work for them as they'd have to parse through the notes to get the previous status. I was thinking maybe a Status request type and link each to a project, then add a portlet to pull associated status requests.

 

Suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Project Status Reporting

There is an out-of-the-box object called PMO - Project Status Report that does this exact thing...it may be part of the PMO best practices offering, or what ever they're calling it now :smileywink:  It's a request type that allows PMs to enter text, pull metrics from the project, and generate an HTML report. Do you have this request type?

I'm not aware of that request type but I will go look for it. Thanks!

 

I'm not seeing this in our system. But I don't believe we have the Best Practices package.
