I've already passed along Monique's great idea for getting timesheets done, if your company allows people to leave early the day before a holiday requirie their timesheets to be done before they leave.

If you're interested in the Portfolio/Program report or the approvals and working on reports, I'd be happy to talk more about how we created those so you can create your own. -Tia

For the portfolio/program report, you'll need to start with a custom form that captures the information of the roles (account manager, project manager, stakeholder/client, creative director, etc). From there you can build the report to bring that information together in one place assuming you've filled out the form you created against your portfolios and programs. We created the form at both the Portfolio and Program level. If you have different groups in your instance, you'll want to be sure to filter by group if that's important. We noticed that our 'worker's were also interested in this information, so had to had to access level settings to be able to view Portfolios for their access even through the Portfolio Program Alignment dashboard was shared with our division. One other note, we created a Portfolio alignment and Portfolio/Program alignment reports then made these into one dashboard to share.

For the Approvals, we are not yet using templated review and approval, but we do want to creative staff to know relevant info about proofs on projects. This consists of several reports migrated into one dashboard. This dashboard shows an individuals proofs and ALL the proofs/documents. When building the report we filter on document approvals to be null and then $$USERID$$. For Proofs this report is filtered by Approver: Home Group, Proof approval awaiting decision as True. Then OR, filter by Requester :Home group and Proof Approval awaiting decision : True. This is the general gist of seeing how to show what it and isn't still hanging out there.

Thank you for the question. So there is a Workfront report called ‚ÄòProject Labor and Expense Costs by Month and Quarter’, it is a project based report. When you open up the Edit Report function, under the ‚ÄòGroupings’ section, be sure to select the ‚ÄòMatrix view. I’m happy to jump on a call with you if you’d like some more info on Matrix reports.
