What’s new in Analytics.

  • We’ve updated the navigation and now you’ll see clear, text menu options and a new intuitive lay out.
  • The Report Library helps you quickly find all of your saved reports in a sortable list.
  • If you have a lengthy list of reports saved in the Report Library, we’ve added a Quick Filter to help you find saved reports fast.liquidplanner update
  • The Recently Viewed reports gives you a list of your most recently opened reports.
  • The Consolidated Report Menu is an easy way to create a new report. Select Resource Report to create reports on people and teams. Each type of report has a pop-out menu where you can select further options. Quickly create a roll-up or baseline report from the pop-up, or create a report based on custom fields. More information can be found on how to create reports in the Help Center.

  • Introduction and Help Guide links. These resource links are in the upper-left corner of the nav bar. For an Intro to Analytics video, select Introduction; for help articles on using analytics to run different reports, go to Help Guide.

  • Consolidated Report Controls. Once you’re in a report, the options for picking the date range, filters and columns desired are all next to one another for ease of use.
  • Find Custom Field Reports under Project and Task Report pop-out menus. The appropriate custom fields appear depending on the report type.
  • The collapsible Data Customization section in the nav bar allows you to easily jump to settings. (Selection is sticky if you wish to fold this up and forget about it.)
