Project Status Report

Our Project Status Report solution provides a data driven one-page Project Status Report in a single click, whenever you need it
 

  1. Solution

    TIP: We invite you to learn about this solution below, and once you are ready, to then proceed here.

    Our Project Status Report solution provides a data driven one-page Project Status Report in a single click, whenever you need it.

    To use it…

    Choose whichever of our two installation options best suits your situation: our “Copy/Paste” dashboard and custom section only without any Report Options, or our “Package Installation” for additional custom data that allows users to set Report Options on the fly. The video in the Media section below illustrates both options in action, and includes step by step installation instructions.

    Whichever option you choose, the resulting Project Status Report then provides all of the following details, where available:

    • Logo
    • Project Name
    • Last Condition Update
    • KPI Overall
    • Portfolio
    • Program
    • Project Sponsor
    • Project Description
    • Milestones
    • KPI Schedule
    • KPI Baseline
    • Show KPI Resourcing
    • Show KPI Scope
    • Show KPI Budget
    • Risks
    • Issues
    • Tasks
    • KPI Footnotes

    NOTE: In both cases, the External Page URL cited in the instructions is as follows, for easy copy/pasting reference:

    https://www.atappstore.com/tools/subform/dashboards/AdminDashboard.html?configName=AtApp Settings Freemium Project Status Report&s={!$$SESSION}&userID={!$$USER.ID}&objID={!ID}&dashboardReport=true&report=true&reportName=Project Status Report&showProjectFilter=true&ShowDownload=true&ext=xls&useViewer=true&useReportOptions=false&hostedAdminURL=https://secure.atappstore.com/Solutions/project-status-report/AdminDashboard.atapp&pdfFrameHeight=565px

    Once you have installed either option, if you have troubles, please be aware of the following GOTCHAs:

    GOTCHA 1: (common) if you chose our Install Package option and upon clicking the AtApp Project Status Report custom section (or tab) the Project Status Report “just spins”, it might be that the Report Options custom form (just above the spinner) is all blank, meaning it isn’t yet connected to the current user. To resolve it, simply click into any of the data cells, enter some data (e.g. set Logo = Default), then click “outside” of the form to save that data. Doing so will connect the custom form to the user and pull in the other default values, after which you can refresh the page, and the Project Status Report should spin for just a few seconds, and then render.

    GOTCHA 2: (happens) if you chose our Install Package option, checked GOTCHA 1, and the Project Status Report still “just spins”, it is might be that the External Page URL was inadvertently malformed along the way: specifically, the API sometimes injects an extra pair of curly braces around {$$USER.{ID}} where instead it should be {$$USER.ID}. To resolve it, edit the AtApp Project Status Report dashboard, inspect and correct the URL either by manually removing the extra pair of curly braces, or simply pasting the entire URL from the link above. Then return to a Project and try the Project Status Report again, which should then render.

    GOTCHA 3: (rare) regardless of with which option you chose to install, if upon clicking the AtApp Project Status Report custom section (or tab) the Project Status Report “black screens”, it might be that your Workfront environment is not enabled for such extensions. To resolve it, navigate to Setup > System > Preferences > Security (assuming you have rights; you might need a SysAdmin’s help), and ensure the checkbox is ON beside “Enable the use of session information when creating External Page URLs”. With that setting then enabled, try the Project Status Report again, which should then render.
