Good reporting is integral to any successful project, and it’s a feature DoneDone users have been requesting for years. We first launched interactive reports last year, and since then we’ve worked with many of our users to continually refine the user interface to make it simpler, faster, and just plain better.
Start With A Filter
The Reports Dashboard works just like the Issue List Dashboard and Activity views. You begin by selecting which types of issues you want to examine, such as issues waiting on you, issues with a specific tag, or overdue issues. You’ll get a chart that breaks down all the issues matching your criteria.
Choose A Category, Then Start Drilling
Use the dropdown labeled “View Issues By” to quickly redraw the chart so that issues are grouped by project, status, priority, fixer, or tester. Click on any chart segment to drill into a specific sub-category.
A Simple Way to Perform Complex Analysis
The chart drill-down system is a powerful way to chain together complex queries. It’s easy to quickly visualize how your issues are distributed from many different angles. Plus, the navigation trail makes it easy to move up or down your query with a single click.
See The Underlying Data As You Work
Visualizations are great, but there’s always a point where you need to see a list of the issues that make up your current chart view. Lucky for you, there’s a quick toggle icon that allows you to instantly switch between a chart and its underlying list of issues.
Let’s Make Reporting Even Better
We already have some ideas on how to improve DoneDone’s reporting features in the future, but we’d love to know your thoughts. Tell us what you’d like to see in your reports via email or Twitter (@getdonedone).
