XTM Cloud 13.4

Initial metrics, assignment and costs report

Use this report to see a summary of costs, assignments and initial metrics per language and project.

Business use case

This report is particularly useful whenever you need to focus your cost and metrics analysis on the initial project metrics (coming from the first project analysis) instead of the most up to date metrics. You can use this report also to potentially compare the initial scope (initial metrics) with the current scope (current metrics reports).

Running the Initial metrics, assignment and costs report.

Note

This report is based on the project costs. If you have not generated them before, XTM Cloud will try to do so while running this report. If cost generation is NOT successful (the red error icon exclamation-circle-solid.png), the relevant project will not be displayed in the report. If costs have been generated with warnings (the yellow warning icon orange-warning-circle-exclamation.png ), by default these projects are excluded from the report. To change it, select the Include costs with warnings in Cost and metrics reports checkbox when running the relevant report.

All projects are displayed in one table. In it, each table row displays the data for one target language, in one project.
