Set up a status report for your team

A status report is a narrative description from team members about whatever subjects are relevant to your organization. When you set up a new status report (status report: A description of the status of a member's project work and related work. Status reports are requested, filled out, and reviewed in Project Server and cannot be used to automatically update project information in Project.) for your team, you define what sections it will contain, who should fill it out, and how frequently it should be submitted. When team members go to the Status Reports page, they can enter their relevant status information by using the status report that you created.

  1. Under Resources, click Status Reports.
  2. Click New, and then click New Request.
  3. On the Status Report Request page, enter the information that you want to appear on your team's status reports, including:
    • The title of the report.

 Tip    Since team members may see multiple status report requests, it is a good idea to include the department or project name in the status report title.

  • The frequency with which you want the reports to be filled out and submitted.
  • The names of the resources on your team who should fill out the report.
  • The topics (sections) that you want your team members to report on.

Your team members' new status report request appears under the Requests section on the Status Reports page.

Project Web Access automatically generates the first status report request on the start date that you specify when you set up the report. Thereafter, status report requests are generated on the first day of each reporting period.

 Note   To edit a status report that you previously set up, under the Request section, select the name of the status report, and then click Edit Request. To view the team members' responses to the status report, click View Responses.

ShowWhy can't I perform some actions in Microsoft Office Project Web Access?

Depending on the permissions settings you used to log on to Project Web Access, you may not be able to see or use certain features. Also, what you see on some pages may differ from what is documented if your server administrator customized Project Web Access and did not customize the Help to match.
