  • Gain insights into project performance and identify potential roadblocks early on.
This update is an extension to our current project statuses feature.

What is a project status report?

In the simplest terms, a project status report is your go-to snapshot of your project's current progress. It's not about getting tangled in a daily play-by-play—it's about presenting the big picture. Imagine a clear breakdown of your wins, the tasks in motion, the challenges you've hit and your game plan to handle them. Your goal? To show, at a glance, just how well your project is stacking up against that initial plan, scope, and timeline. Just real, tangible progress, presented plain and simple. We have a short guide on how to write and effective project status report.

Why is project status reporting important?

  • Improved project transparency : Keep stakeholders informed about project progress and any potential issues.
  • Enhanced collaboration: Facilitate seamless collaboration among team members by providing a centralized platform for status updates.
  • Effective risk management: Identify and address potential roadblocks early on to prevent delays and ensure project success.
  • Increased accountability: Encourage team members to take ownership of their tasks and stay accountable for their progress.

How to get started with project status reports

You can find the project status reporting under each project under the "Overview" tab. The overview tab is a new view that includes project activity and project status reporting. The old activity view is moved here under the overview view. That way you can see the big picture and the details on the same page.

You can use all the familiar formatting options and also upload files. The project progress reports are saved and you can add as many as you need. You can come back and always see your older progress reports.

Admin users can update and delete all the progress reports but regular users can only update their own progress reports. Don't forget that you can also create custom statuses for projects.

By incorporating our project status updates feature into your workflow, you can gain valuable insights, enhance collaboration, and maintain complete transparency across your projects. Let us help you streamline your project management process and achieve your goals with ease.
