As your projects grow, tracking project status via e-mail becomes pretty much impossible. That's why we launched Wrike's Analytics features — so Enterprise users can quickly find answers to critical questions about project status and individual workloads.
Today, we're giving you an all-new chart: Tasks By Users, which compares the productivity levels of individuals on your team.
We have also expanded the Enterprise analytics section by offering you the ability to customize your progress report charts. Now, you can edit which stats are displayed on Analytics reports, delete charts you don't use, and even add your favorite charts as widgets on the Dashboard.
Watch our short video and see the new customizable reports in action:
You'll be able to test the waters and find the perfect combination of filters to fit your specific needs, but to get you started we've prepared a list with the most useful filters for each chart.
Useful Filters for Familiar Graphs:
1. Performance Chart: This chart helps you measure the pace of your team and quickly spot any setbacks that might disrupt project completion.
Filter the chart: Combine Planned + Completed tasks to see your overall project progress. Choose Completed + Due by This Date to check up on your current performance.
2. Baseline Chart: This graph compares actual project progress to the original plan. It's a staple for project managers, especially when you need to plan multiple projects with similar timelines, or report on real progress to Executives.
Filter the chart: Filter to milestones only to instantly spot the most important alterations in the project schedule. Choose tasks assigned to you to report on the project components that you're responsible for.
3. Work Progress: This chart tracks the performance of each team member and gives you a historical perspective on their productivity. Use it to identify your top Wrike performers — maybe they can help you spread best practices. You can also spot people who are underperforming and investigate the reason. (Workload too heavy? Complex tasks? etc.)
Filter the chart: If you're interested in your current personal work progress, filter tasks assigned to you and turn completed tasks off. Alternatively, you can filter tasks assigned to your department to see the progress your team's making.
4. NEW! Tasks by Users: Similar to the Work Progress chart, tasks are grouped by user so you can compare performance and make sure your team members aren't overloaded with work.
Filter the chart: If your team makes up part of a larger corporate account, set your filters with yourself as task author and people on your team as task assignees. Then your chart will show you the performance of your team and the tasks you've assigned them only.
When you've landed on your favorite or frequently referenced analytics reports, add them to your Dashboard for instant access to the information you care about.
