After a successful beta phase, we’re proud to present the full release of our all-new Reports feature for MeisterTask. We’ve worked hard to implement your feedback, which in turn has allowed us to fine-tune this excellent feature: the best way to gain insights into your projects and make data-driven decisions to boost productivity.
This post should help you get to grips with some of the things we’ve added since the beta phase, as well as showcasing some of the ways you can use reports for your team. Specifically, we’ll be looking at the following:
Why do project managers and their teams need reports? How does MeisterTask Reports help improve project productivity? What’s new in the latest version of Reports? Why MeisterTask Reports?
Reports are a growingly important part of modern task and project management. The reason for this is simple: if you have more information to hand about how your project and team is performing, the easier it becomes to make intelligent decisions that will positively impact project outcomes. While Reports do not improve projects on their own, they give team members, project managers and other stakeholders the opportunity to do so.
In MeisterTask, certain types of information are “multi-purpose” and can be used to generate different types of statistics. Examples include which project a task belongs to, who worked on it, when, and for how long. However, the most valuable reports rely on context: pulling data from multiple sources across various timeframes and using this to form a big picture overview of productivity in which the role of each individual task can be clearly seen.
With MeisterTask Reports, we address this by helping to present your project data in an easily-accessible and easily-understandable way. As you may already have experienced during the beta version of the feature, the types of reports you can create and the applications of these reports are essentially endless. From quick reports that show you valuable project metrics in just one click, to customized reports that allow you to pinpoint specific types of data about projects, tasks and team members.

What’s New Since Beta?
Beta versions are all about gathering feedback: huge numbers of keen MeisterTask users tried out the all-new Reports and were pleased with what they saw. As user opinion was so positive, we’ve been able to focus almost entirely on improving the feature with new functionality. Here are some of the highlights that have been added in time for the official launch.
Filter and Group by Assignee
This feature is available to all users.
Filtering and grouping options provide users with the opportunity to customize their reports to show the insights that matter most. Previously, filters were available for Project, Date Range, Task Status and Tags. The addition of Assignees to these options means that the split of tasks within a project (or multiple projects) between its members is now more visible.
In the example below, we can see that in 2020, tasks in the project were split relatively evenly between two of the project’s members, while a third had fewer tasks. This may have been an indication that the work was not being distributed properly and thatContinue reading
