Getting Started with Reports

Abstract

Overview of Tempo's different kinds of reports and how to access them

Important

Viewing worklogs for other team members in Tempo Reports requires the View All Worklogs and Browse Projects permissions for each project.

To report on planned time, you need to have Tempo Planner installed. Viewing plans requires the View Plans permission.

To get started with Tempo Reports, select Reports Reports_LessPadding_copy.png in the Tempo sidebar. You'll then land in the Reports Overview page, where you can create new reports or and access saved reports.

Tempo currently offers three types of reports for our users:

  • The Logged Time report provides a quick overview of the time spent on projects. You can create reports combining multiple teams, projects, accounts, users and issues - and you can group your results by issue, user, project, team, or worklog, or any combination of those four. This report is accessible to users with Tempo Timesheets.

    The Logged Time report also allows you to easily generate reports on billable hours for invoicing purposes.

  • The Planned Time report shows the time that has been planned on projects based on teams and individual users. In both cases, you can opt to display total hours worked and billable hours. This report is accessible to users with Tempo Planner.

  • The Planned vs Actual report gives an understanding of the accuracy of your planning by comparing the time that has been planned versus the actual time that was logged. You can compare the variance between planned and actual hours by project, epic, role, user, and account. This report is accessible to users with both Tempo Timesheets and Tempo Planner.

Get an Overview with Sample Reports

When you first visit the Reports Overview page, you will see a sample Tempo report displayed in the lower half of the view. This gives you an overview of the key functionalities and filters you can use when you create reports of your own.

Once you have created and saved reports, the sample reports will disappear and your saved reports will be displayed as tiles in this lower section. This report library makes it easy for you to open or run a saved report, modify it and save your changes, or make a copy of the report.
