Reports return information related to the projects or tasks that meet the criteria you specify in filters, summaries, and column sets. Project reports return results based on single-value categories and summarized data tables, while task reports return results based on individual rows within project task tables. Therefore, before you create a report, think about the information you want to access. For example, if you want to see how many projects are in progress at each location, average project duration, or estimated hard savings, then create a project report. Conversely, if you want to see open tasks at each location, tasks assigned by belt level, or high priority tasks that are unassigned, create a task report.
A private report can only be viewed and edited by the user who created it.
Anyone can view a public report , but only data architects can create and edit a public report.
As a data architect, you can create or edit public reports from the dashboard on the live site, but only when a sandbox is not active. Use this method when you want to create a simple report or make a small edit because your changes are applied to live the site immediately after you exit edit mode.
As a data architect, you can create or edit public reports from the dashboard in the sandbox. Use this method when you want to create multiple or complex reports or make big changes because you can test the reports before you make them available to all users on the live site.
