Project cost, metrics and assignment per step report

Use this report to see cost, metric, and assignment details per each workflow step in the selected project(s).

Business use case

This report is particularly recommended if you use machine translation and are measuring edit distance. This report gives you insights into project cost, scope and edit distance calculation, along with the vendor cost discounts based on edit distance.

Running the Project cost, metrics and assignment per step 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.

In this report, all projects are displayed in one table. In it, each table row displays the data for one workflow step, in one target language, in one project. Information about all workflow step assignees is aggregated and displayed in one table column.
