These are great to see the areas of engagement and clean up areas for system admins 👌
Cleanup Dashboard that Nikki posted is super helpful
I use this page quite a bit
Calculated Data Expressions (CONCAT, ROUND, SUM, etc)
as well of some of the examples on this page or the other page linked to from here
Understanding Common Uses of Text Mode
Here are some of the text mode links I shared:
Also here is the Workfront article on getting started with reporting:
In our breakout, a question was asked if you can report on tasks/issues in one report. I thought we did but couldn't remember how. My wizard, @Anthony Imgrund‚ reminded me.... You can if you use the Assignment Object type (its just not inline editable). See attached for more info!
Just listened to the recording . . . wish I could have joined! I hope there will be more of these!
Also, thanks to those who have posted the various links. Love these type of things!
I was just listening to the Leap session on the EXISTS filter and there's a report mentioned there that I thought would be super helpful considering some of the discussions it looks like at least a couple breakout groups had on the cleanup dashboard.
it's a filter for: Show me all custom fields that are not currently in use on any forms.
Funny, that's the second time someone has mentioned that session this week! In addition to encouraging everyone to listen to the recording, we might have to rope in @Anthony Messam‚ to drop some knowledge at a future reporting User Group! :)
Here's another helpful empty report @Heather Kulbacki‚ !
Remove Empty Projects report: This pulls any project with zero tasks, issues, or documents. The columns I include are project name, entry date, actual hours, owner and entered by name to double check that it's an empty forgotten project and not one someone is still in the process of creating. Grouped by Project Group to easily sort my domain.
