Use drill down option to view project task details 

As a part of this release, the drill down option is available for two charts i.e. ‘Status of Tasks by Planned Date’ and ‘Status of Tasks by Deadline’. 

The drill down option is a right pane window which opens when clicked on any of the bars in the chart. It gives details such as the name of the task and the creator of the task. Below is a demo and a sample image of the same. 

 

With the help of the drill down option, information such as the name of the task, task creator’s name, time of creation, the name of the project, and respective folder can be known. 

The above image shows the results of tasks which have no deadline date. This can be seen if you click on the ‘No deadline’ bar in the ‘Status of Tasks by Deadline’ chart.
