Double Grouping Report Results #Improvement
A new function release by Hub Planner: How to activate a secondary grouping of report results.
It’s the gift that keeps on giving. Hub Planner adds yet another new function release to Reports. Now, users can opt to add a secondary grouping option to reports. Grouping can be useful for breaking a large amount of data into manageable chunks or for collapsing data into expandable groups.
As the title suggest, previous to the new function release. Hub Planner reporting allowed for grouping by one singular primary option. Now, you can add in a double option to group reports by. For example. Previously if I chose a Project Scheduled Time report, I could opt to group my report results by a number of different options including Resource, Custom Field, Event, etc. Say I choose Projects and Events. Now, I can add a secondary grouping option by Resource and Unassigned. This will activate the double grouping function. By adding a double grouping, I can see a further breakdown of resource time on the projects all on the one page. Now my project Scheduled Time report will be grouped primarily by Projects and secondarily by Resource and Unassigned Work. A good idea is to save the report for future access
New Cross Filters now Available in Reports. #Improvement
Use filters for deep dive into report analytics in resource management. Maximise the information to better decision making in scheduling resources and project planning.
Hub Planner have installed in excess of 70 pre-formatted templates which allow for a high level breakdown of data. The Hub Planner Report Builder allows you to apply as many or as little filters as we need. Filters allow us to delve into the nitty gritty of project and resource data. What was predetermined by the initial report type. You now have the opportunity to cross filter. So what this means is whether you can now filter reports regardless of report type.
Some filter options have two columns meaning what you select in the left hand column will create more options on the right hand side for you to choose from.
New Reporting Platform #Improvement
We have completely revamped the interface and user experience of Hub Planner Reports. The side bar has been reconstructed to facilitate a better layout and flow to report options.

Why Remote Teams in Multiple Timezones Actually Works #Update
If you haven’t trialed out remote working, then perhaps you’re about to be thrown in at the deep end. Take the outbreak of Covid19. This made for a real-time case study where remote teams were required more than ever. Enforced lockdowns created a surge in remote teams and technology for remote working. So why do remote team in multiple timezones actually work? As cities loosen restrictions, do people really want to go back into the office? WFH trend maybe here to stay. With this in mind. Now our resource pool is global. Our working day has the potential to be around the clock.
"Meanwhile, the share prices of Zoom and Slack, which are both available in China, have risen by a fifth and a third, respectively, since the Chinese new year holiday."
Working across multiple timezones can be a balancing act. But, ever-increasing successful remote teams. Remote teams working across multiple timezones feel more valued, productive and happy at work. By adopting the right tools will help you collaborate across different timezones. Even Hub Planner have recently released two additional features to assist with the growing demand for remote teams in multiple timezones.
My Project and Resource Tags #Improvement
Project and Resource tags are a popular feature for Hub Planner users. Now, we release a brand new addition that allows each user to set their own tags within their Hub Planner profile.
What are Tags and Why do I need them? Project and Resource tags are words that help identify you. These could be your skill sets, your area of expertise, if you work full or part time for example. They might include where you are located, what languages you speak etc. It will help the resource planner to identify and match resources with the right skillset for the right project. A little similar to our Custom Fields feature.
Assign the role As with most of Hub Planner’s features, there are settings permissions to allow or restrict users the ability to access and enter information. The same goes for adding ‘My Tags’.
Set permission for users to add or edit their own tags. You can also set up access for the various resource levels to add new tags.
Improve Resource Teams Capacity Planning with Heat Map Reports #Improvement
Heat map reports are a versatile and efficient way to swiftly gain insights to data trends and patterns. But how can we use heat maps to advance and boost resource teams capacity planning? Well, the visualization of existing data values becomes enhanced with a heat map function. The report data becomes easier to distinguish. Heat map reports are innately self explanatory, simplifying the communication of key data. You will come across heat maps in many ways, not just in resource management. For example, Strava use heat maps to show global activity. Like Strava, all Hub Planner reports are in real time. What is the benefit? You can track and monitor resources, teams and projects with immediate live data. This allows you to accurately gauge capacity and utilization planning. In turn, decisions can be made more quickly and strategically bettering resource teams capacity planning.
Report Update: Non-Grouped Results & Multiple Levels of Report Results #Update
Another new and accompanying update to the recently released Hub Planner Reports is a really useful feature to non-group report results. Simultaneously, now stay within the same report to view multiple levels of report results. What’s the new report update?
On the back of the recent rebuilding of Hub Planner Reports. We have and will always update and refresh features as part of our great relationship and rapport with Hub Planner users. Now, we release two updates to Reports. Firstly, you have the ability to drill down through reports for a breakdown of raw report results. What was previously two levels of report results, now accelerate analytics with navigating through up to four levels of report results. Not only that, we’ve provided the option of ‘non-grouped results’. What does this mean? This means that the user can remove any levels for a thorough breakdown of raw results data reporting.
For example, I want to see a day by day breakdown of who worked on what. You might say I can do that already? Correct, but previous to the new reports update, the user would have to navigate between levels to obtain the breakdown. Now, these levels are eliminated and you get the breakdown all in one screen. Otherwise known as ‘non-grouped results’!
Work Smarter with Conditional Formatting Reports #Improvement
Conditional Formatting allows you to highlight, format, emphasize, flag and differentiate report data. Filter through data from a visual aspect.
In line with Hub Planners latest release of Project and Resource Reporting, conditional formatting option from the reporting toolbar is now live. Originating from software like Excel, conditional formatting is a way of highlighting data based on a rule(s) you have created. Real-time report analytics can now be formatted to visually emphasize data you created. Resource management scheduling and planning has never been easier with conditional formatting. Differentiating data can act like a flag. Which can allow for resource planners to manage scheduling and planning more efficiently.
Filter through data from a visual aspect.
