How do I Monitor Project Activity
To monitor Project Activity hover over the 'Project' Tab and click on 'List Projects' from the drop-down list to bring up the Project List Window. Select the Project of interest to bring up the Project Details Page. Click on the Activity Tab to bring up a Snapshot view of the current status of the Project - Monthly Burn Variance (How the project is performing against plan for the current month) and Cumulative Burn Track (How is the Project performing against Plan).
Clicking on the Burn Rate Analysis Tab brings up the Burn Rate Analysis Report. (Discussed Below)
The Activity Report Tab shows you the time charged by each person assigned to the project per the time period you specify. The default is the current month but this can be adjusted by clicking on the Previous and Next Month buttons or specifying specific dates in the Report Period From and To Fields.
The Timecards Tab provides a list of all personnel assigned to the project and the hours they have charged to the project per week. The default is the current week but this can be adjusted by clicking on the Previous and Next Week buttons.
