User Activity Summary Page

This page displays a summary of the work done by a user.

Activity by issue

This tab shows how much work the user has done on issues during the specified time period. Depending on your permissions, you may also be able to see the associated cost of the work done.

This table is ordered by issue topic and then by the id of the issue.

To restrict the display of work done on issues to a particular period:
  • Select one of the time periods (Today, Yesterday, This month, etc) in the For period drop-down. The From and To dates will be adjusted automatically.
  • Or, choose the From and To dates for the period you desire using the associated buttons or by manually entering in the dates, then click Apply. The For period drop-down will be adjusted automatically.

Description of table columns

Issue The id of the issue. If you have permission to view the issue, this is a link to the issue’s page.
Summary The summary of the issue.
Work Done The sum of the work done on the issue by the user in the chosen period, based on the user’s work journal entries.
Cost If permissions allow, the cost of the amount of user’s time indicated in the Work Done column. This is calculated by multiplying the work done by the user’s hourly cost. Cost information is calculated on the current hourly cost of users. Consequently, any changes in a user’s hourly cost over time are not taken into account.
Issue Topic The name of the topic associated with the issue. If you have permission to view topics, this is a link to the topic’s page.

Activity by project

This tab shows how much work the user has done on projects. It also shows how much time was allocated (by the project manager) to the user for particular projects. Depending on your permissions, you may also be able to see the associated cost of the work done.

This information is useful as it shows how much work the user has done out of what was expected, indicating clearly how much more work he or she has to do on each project in a particular period to meet project manager’s expectations.

Projects that are alternatives are not shown in the table. For more information on alternative projects, please see the help for the Manage Projects Page. Any work in the specified time period for issues that are not part of a milestone will not contribute to values in the table.

To restrict the display of work done on projects to a particular period:
  • Select one of the time periods (Today, Yesterday, This month, etc) in the For period drop-down. The From and To dates will be adjusted automatically.
  • Or, choose the From and To dates for the period you desire using the associated buttons or by manually entering in the dates, then click Apply. The For period drop-down will be adjusted automatically.

Description of table columns

Project The name of the project. If you have permission to view projects, this is a link to the project’s page.
Allocated Work The amount of the user’s time allocated to the project in the chosen period. Time is allocated to users on the Allocation calendars tab of the Manage Users page, reached using the global Users tab.
Work Done The total amount of work done on the project by the user in the chosen period, based on the user’s work journal entries. Any work journal entries within the period but dated in the future (that is, with a start time after the end of today) are ignored, as these cannot represent work that has actually been performed thus far.
Variance The variance of the Work Done to Allocated Work (that is, Work Done - Allocated Work), expressed as a quantity, and as a percentage relative to the Allocated Work. The variance will be highlighted in red if the % Allocated Work Done column is less than 85% or more than 115%. Otherwise, it is highlighted green.
% Allocated Work Done The amount of Work Done, divided by the Allocated Work. It is possible for this figure to be over 100% if the user has done more work than allocated.
Cost If permissions allow, the cost of the amount of the user’s time indicated in the Work Done column. This is calculated by multiplying the work done by the user’s hourly cost. Cost information is calculated on the current hourly cost of users. Consequently, any changes in a user’s hourly cost over time are not taken into account.
