Getting Started with Reports


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


  • Viewing worklogs for your team members in Tempo Reports requires the View Worklogs and Browse Projects permissions. To see worklogs for other users in a project, you need to have the View All Worklogs permission.

  • 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.

When you first open the Reports Overview page, you'll see a sample Tempo report displayed. This gives you an overview of the key features and filters you can use when you create reports of your own. 

Sample report for logged time

When you're ready to create a report, simply click the tile of the type of report that you want. This launches a report wizard that helps you set up your report. You can create three types of reports depending on which Tempo products you have installed:

  • The Logged Time report is available if you have access to Tempo Timesheets. It provides a report on logged time of any type. 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. The Logged Time report also allows you to easily generate reports on billable hours for invoicing purposes.

  • The Planned Time report is available if you have access to Tempo Planner. It 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.

  • The Planned vs Actual report is available if you have access to both Tempo Timesheets and Tempo Planner. It 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.

Once you have created and saved reports, the sample report disappears and your saved reports are displayed in the Saved Reports 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.
