How to generate Activity Reports?
The Activity Reports group in ScheduleReader is formed by the Activity Status, Activity Steps, and Activity Units reports.
As the most used, the activity status report is covered in a separate article.
The Activity steps report is the second report in this category and it is used to divide the activity into smaller pieces of work (phases), without adding additional sub-tasks in the Gantt Chart. Usually, activities are named after the phases that the activity is consisted of, informing the project viewer to be precisely informed about the activity stage.
In the Activity Steps report, the user is able to view the status of the steps (not started, in progress or completed) that are assigned to the activities.
