Reporting Categories for Status Values

 

This feature is available in Catalyst, Enterprise, and Ultimate editions.

With Reporting Categories, you can assign portfolio items, stories, defects, and testsets to a fixed set of categories that are used for reporting purposes.

Reports, grids, and progress bars honor these settings when considering how items display. For example,  progress bars now consider status when determining which items are active and which ones are complete.  The same is true for Project Burndown, Workitem Trend, Velocity and other estimate-based reports. In grids, "Completed" items are highlighted so you can easily see them.

To manage reporting categories, your Admin Privileges role must be set to "System Administrator".

Notes:

  • On the details page of a story, defect, or testset, the Date Completed field displays the date the item transitions into a Reporting Category status of Completed. This date is then calculated in status-driven reports and progress bars.

  • Reporting Categories do not determine if an item is visible on grids and boards. This is determined by the AssetState of the item. You must close portfolio items and workitems to remove them from your Boards and Grids.  

Status Values

As described in the table below, closed portfolio items and workitems are considered complete regardless of the status value.  The columns are the possible state values and the rows are the reporting categories.
 

  Active Closed Deleted
Not Started Not Complete Complete Deleted
In Progress Not Complete Complete Deleted
Completed Complete Complete Deleted

Viewing "Completed" Workitems in a Backlog Grid

In Backlog grids, backlog items that are assigned to a "Completed" reporting category are highlighted with green and white shading so you can visually distinguish them from other items.
