Create a Status Report

You can use Project Web Access to design a status report for other project resources to complete and submit to you periodically. You set up the time period and the headings. At the designated time periods, the individuals write their status report and submit it to the project server. You can review the status reports individually or have the project server compile them for an integrated project status report.

You need to request the status report only when you first set it up. Resources see automated reminders in their Project Web Access Home page when a status report is coming due.

To set up a narrative status report, follow these steps:

1 In your Web browser, log on to Project Web Access and then click Status Reports in the navigation bar (see Figure 24-9).

Figure 24-9. Click Request A Status Report to design a narrative periodic status report.

2 In the side pane, click Request A Status Report.

3 Complete the options on the page and then click Next.

4 Work through the succeeding pages to design the status report the way you need (see Figure 24-10).
