Project Online Reporting Improvement?

Author Kenneth Steiness makes the claim that the new Project Server Online “content pack update will help you take your organization’s Project and Portfolio Management reporting to powerful new levels.” The article by Steiness certainly does make the update look promising, but I am not jumping up and down just yet. Over the years, most reporting features and improvements turn out a bit weak and at times most troublesome.

Most people were not around when Microsoft Project first came out in 1990. The product didn’t qualify as a project management software, perhaps a weak scheduling tool. But what it did have were some pretty good canned reports that could be customized to some degree. These reports were in addition to printing a Gantt Chart or PERT Chart view.

The product got better over time, the reporting did not. Let’s hope for better and better reporting tools. It isn’t that complicated. You could capture then entire portfolio of project and PPM reporting requirements with 100 reports that were entirely customizable by a non-programmer or the need for backend access.

    You actually make it appear so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually one thing that I think I would never understand. It kind of feels too complicated and very vast for me. I’m taking a look forward for your subsequent post, I will try to get the hold of it!

      I think reporting in this system if one of Microsoft’s biggest failures. It is too complicated and it hasn’t worked well.
