To view reports navigate to wp-admin → Project Manager → Reports.

We have added several predefined report cases depending on user feedback. The reports are very much self-explanatory.

Overdue Tasks

Lists tasks from the project that have passed the due date but are not completed yet. Now, you can determine which tasks you need to get off your waiting list first.

Complete Tasks

Tasks that were completed from all to-do lists. Tasks which you can relax about.


User Activities

A complete review of all the tasks created or deleted by all co-workers. It is also possible to create reports for specific user activities. All you have to do is select the user name and time frame.

Project Task

A complete report showing all your tasks from projects. You can also generate reports for complete and incomplete tasks. When you select this report a popup will be displayed and you have to choose what kind of report you want to generate and press the Run Report button.


Task by Milestones

Displays all the tasks according to specific milestones. You have to select a project and assign milestones to generate this report. You can also export this report to CSV file format.


Unassigned Task

This report lists all the tasks which were not assigned to any of the users.



This report will help you give a snapshot of your projects' every aspect. The most amazing thing is that you can customize the attributes of your project report to get the report according to your preferences.

To get the report, hit the ‘View Full Report' button:

Project vs user
  • User vs project
Graphical presentation of project vs user

These filters will generate reports with graphical representation.

Project vs user

If you select this option, you will be able to know which user has given how long in their assigned projects. If you hover your mouse pointer on the graph then you will get a tooltip describing the details.

The advanced report is the old report

We didn't completely remove our old reporting system because of its complete manual capacities. You can still access it by clicking Advanced Report.

On this page, you will be prompted to select a project to generate the report or to export it to a CSV file.

  • Use the drop-down menu to select your desired project.
  • Use the “+” button for selecting multiple projects.
  •  Click Generate Report to view project report(s).

After clicking the generate project button, you will see your project reports in detail, such as Project Name, Task List, Title, Task, Assigned Person's name, Start Date, Due Date, Status, and more in details by clicking on them.
