Many of our reports allow you to group data. The Schedule vs Timesheets Report has three available grouping options:
- Primary Grouping
- Secondary Grouping
- Tertiary Grouping
These groupings include the following options:
When data is grouped, the report subtotals all the fields that contain duration, cost or billable amounts. The only exception to this is when a chosen grouping has projects in multiple currencies. In that case amount fields display N/A as amounts from different currencies can’t be added up.
Customers: Select the customer(s) you want to run the report for. You can select one or more customers as needed.
Projects: Select the project(s) you want to run the report for. You can select one or more projects as needed. You can only choose a project after one or more customers have been chosen.
Categories: Filter based on timesheet categories and leave types the schedule bookings are added for. This is very useful if you only need to see a certain type of schedule booking.
