See your project issues in a whole new way

See your project issues in a whole new way

by Kevin Connolly

Today, I’m proud to show you the new issues dashboard — a feature designed to bring data insights to you, so that you can bring data-driven confidence to your project management.

Keeping an eye on the number, type, and resolution of issues on a large project isn’t easy. At PlanGrid, we see projects that have anywhere between a few hundred and a few thousand issues that need to be tracked. With this in mind, we designed a clear, colorful dashboard which summarizes the key areas of issue creation and resolution over time on a per-project basis.

With the dashboard, you can:

See a visual breakdown of all issues
Quickly assess how many issues are open, closed, pending, and in review.

Find out which problems occur most
Immediately see the issues that occur the most, and understand what needs attention as a result.

View issue creation over time
Get a pulse on your project as you track issue progress over time.

See who, what, and when
Find out which team members are creating issues, and how many issues they are opening/closing/reporting.

Create issue reports in a snap
Visually interactive charts generate automatically filtered issue reports in just one click.

Take a look at your issues dashboard by viewing your project on the web, clicking ISSUES, then clicking VIEW DASHBOARD.

Each dashboard element exists to help you get more information from your project. We value your time more than anything — and with this dashboard, we’re enabling faster, data-driven decisions through elegant design. It is my sincere hope that this new functionality brings a new level of success to your business, and on behalf of the PlanGrid team, we eagerly await your feedback.

Happy building,

Kevin Connolly
