Reports are helpful for determining how time is utilized throughout your organization and for reviewing project costs and client billing. You can generate reports to review detailed or summarized data. TimeLive allows you to create highly-customized reports to assist with tracking and management of time, expenses, users, and projects. Reports can be viewed within TimeLive or saved to a PDF or Excel (CSV) file.

A number of default reports have been installed with TimeLive; refer to Default Reports for a list of these reports and their uses. You can run these reports without modification, or customize these reports.(see Bottom)

If you are running a text report with Summary Options selected, choose the Data Display Style:

  • Detailed: each report entry will display in a separate row. Plus, a summary row will display for each row grouping and for the report as a whole.
  • Consolidated: only summary rows will display – for each row grouping and for the report as a whole

The best way to start learning which reports work best for you is by viewing the report previews and running test reports.
