As a project manager, you not only want to be up-to-date on open projects, you also have an obligation to all stakeholders to provide regular updates. Therefore, creating a project status report falls under one of the essential tasks of project management.
After all, the more projects you manage, the more demanding and extensive your responsibilities will be. Which goals have already been achieved? Which projects are still open? What are the priorities? And which project is getting dangerously close to its due date?
A reliable project status tool makes it immensely easier for you to assess future risks and overcome obstacles in project management. For this purpose, we present you Report Builder’s “Project Status Report” for Jira.
A project status report provides the perfect overview of the latest developments in your projects. This allows you to better calculate budgets and schedule deadlines. A project status report shows projects that are coming due soon or are already overdue. The goal of such a report is to provide all stakeholders with full transparency about the project’s progress, and thus prevent problems before they actually occur.
Reporting Apps will revolutionize your reporting. Filter what information you want to display with just a few clicks and get the latest data updated automatically. Report Builder from Actonic is such a tool that includes “Project Status Report” among many other report types.
Step 1: Navigate to the reports module of Report Builder, then to Create Report (1) and select Project Status Report from the report types outlined in gray (2).
