I can see in the Updates tab who clicked on Work on It (and the date) as well as who changed (and the date) the status of an issue. Below is a screenshot of the Updates tab. In this example, how can I pull the dates 12/17/2020 and 12/29/2020 into a report? Thank you!
@Jeremy Flores‚ is/was working on a way to report on updates! Not sure if this would qualify in his report, but possibly! It isn't released yet I don't think, but perhaps he could give us an update.
Also, if you change the work on it button to the 'Start' button and then click the 'Start' then that is the date which is the 'Actual Start Date' which you can report on 🙂
Thanks for looping me in @Samantha Isin‚. Yes, the new journal entry report would allow you to report on system updates, including the dates @Lynn Nguyen‚ is showing above. If all goes according to plan, I'm aiming to have this available in Preview the week of February 15th.
Hope you're doing well. I would also love to be notified when this new Journal report is available; I could use it. Please add me to the DL. Thanks!
Thanks for sharing @Jeremy Flores‚ ! Will there be an announcement the week of 2/15 when this will be available? Do you know if after this date I will be able to pull this data into an Issue report? Also, my team doesn't use Preview - could I pull it into a Prod report? Thanks!
@Steven Hirsch‚ - doing well thanks and hope the same for you. I will let you know once this report becomes available. Thanks for your interest.
You bet @Lynn Nguyen‚ - yes and it will also be covered in the release notes. You won't be able to pull this in from an issue report but should be able to get to it using a journal entry report. The journal entry report can be filtered for specific Projects, Tasks, Issues, etc. This report would likely go to Production on March 3rd - as long as everything goes well. Thanks for your questions!
Sounds good Kundan. I've added both you and Steven Hirsch. This report should provide some great value, but is not for the faint of heart 😉.
Could I be added to the communication as well? I have a similar need and think this will do the trick (I'd like to see all Projects where any field on a specific custom form was changed within a date range).
Yes, of course. @Kundan Kumar‚ ‚ @Steven Hirsch‚ and @Ryan Brogneri‚ ‚Äî the new Journal Entry report is available in Preview now with plans to go to Production on Thursday, March 4th. The Journal Entry report will only display custom fields that have the "display changes on the update feed" setting enabled. This setting can be found in Setup > Custom Forms > then selecting the specific field > additional settings.
Another (new) way that you will be able to track changes to Custom Fields is using Audit Logs found within Setup > System. Hope this helps!
Hey Seth ‚Äî Hopefully at some point in the future we would be able to do this, but unfortunately today our db structure doesn't allow it. We did consider this originally, though.
