Reports, Charts and Pivot Data Tables in FogBugz



This article is about the reports available in the Filters view.

You have different types of reports available, like a pie chart, bar chart, column chart, changes over-time visualization, and raw-data summaries (aka pivot table) reports, each of them having a lot of filtering and further break-down possibilities.

For Time Tracking related reporting read about Time Sheets and FNN Reports.

For Evidence-Based Scheduling (EBS) reports (when your project will be completed) read Evidence-Based Scheduling.
