One of the key steps in project portfolio management is to easily identify which projects are at risk in terms of planning and profitability. At project level the project summary metrics already allow you to identify gaps between the allocated time budget and the actual time recorded by your colleagues. However when monitoring a large portfolio of projects it is vital to be able to track gaps and planning issues across projects. The new GroupCamp cross-project export file for project metrics allows you to do that.
Exporting project metrics in Excel
To get an export of project metrics across all projects, go to the Overview application in a project and click on the export icon.
On the screen below above you have multiple options:
- You can choose the time unit in which you want to export your data. Please note that conversion is based on the conversion rate set in your global settings.
- You can export metrics for the current project.
- You can export metrics for all projects in the account. For that since GroupCamp stores project metrics at the end of every business week and at the beginning of every month, you can choose the date for which you want the export.
The Excel file presents a list of all the projects in your account and with a list of all the metrics for that project.
We are happy to present the new GroupCamp features which allows you to add logos and favicons for each group:
- You now have default favicons for project groups and for the Timesheet app under the Tracking menu,
- Customizing groups with logos which are then displayed when you print from applications in your project groups.
- When adding custom logos, you can browse images in any web page by entering its URL.
- All images in various GroupCamp apps are now managed the same way.
The new GroupCamp group favicons
Favicons are now available in your projects and in the Timesheet application under the Tracking menu. When you are in those applications, the favicon displayed in your browser will not be the standard GroupCamp favicon but the new favicons for each group type.
The new favicons are displayed in the browser tabs.
You can customize the colors of the favicons in the Look & feel application as shown below.
