Contextual Help - Administration: Task Description Report

The Task Report by Description is used to perform a search based on text content. The search is made within 3 description fields: Summary, Details and Comment Thread. By default, all incomplete tasks are displayed for all projects.

This window has 3 parts: the title bar, the search bar and the report table.

  • The title bar tells you where you are in AceProject.
    • At the end of the title bar you will find the link to contextual help.
    • The "Printer Version" link will open a printer-friendly window containing all tasks in the report as filtered by your search criteria.
    • The Export link opens a window that allows you to export the task report by description that is displayed on your screen. Exportation is available in two formats: CSV and Microsoft Excel. The following criteria can be set: Column Delimiter, Decimal Symbol and Date Format.
    • The title bar will also display the total number of tasks that correspond to your search. 
  • The search bar is used to filter the information you want in the report. 
    • Simply type in the text you are looking for, then choose one of more search criteria and click the "Generate Report" button
    • AceProject will search within the three description fields. Tasks that correspond to your search criteria will be displayed in red font.
  • The Report table displays all tasks that correspond to your search:
    • You can sort the table by clicking on any column header: click once to sort in ascending order and twice to sort in descending order. 
    • Click on a project name to open it in the second tab.
    • Click on the task summary to open it.
      • If there is a file icon next to the task summary (), this means there are file(s) attached to the task. Click on the file number to open the task's file attachment tab.
      • If there is a dependency icon next to the task summary (1 predecessor(s)
0 successor(s), 0 predecessor(s)
1 successor(s) or 1 predecessor(s)
1 successor(s)), this means that the task is linked to one or multiple tasks.
    • By default, this report will show all incomplete tasks for all projects.
