Release 44 | People List Widget

Latest Feature | March 27, 2024

We are happy to announce the release of our latest feature: the People List Widget. As in the People Table Report, the People List Widget allows you to view and compare user availability and workload metrics, such as hours scheduled and time logged.

The People List Widget has the same columns and parameters as the People Table Report and you can customize the data you want to show to tailor your unique dashboard view. You can also apply a Date Range Filter to show hours logged or scheduled by all user types–Members, Resources, or Placeholders– in a given period. Each row in a People List Widget shows a roll-up of hours and work metrics for each user based on the widget scope.

Key Benefits

The People List Widget is a counterpart to our People Table Report, rounding out our pairings of reports and widgets. Unlike the other pairings that show you a list of projects, packages, and tasks, the People Table Report and People List Widget provide a list of actual users who have an assignment in whatever location you build a dashboard. This pairing also ensures that we offer full feature coverage across reports and dashboards.

The People List Widget allows you to view users’ working, scheduled, and logged hours. Add it to your dashboard and customize settings to for improved visibility of this workload data.
