Project cost, metrics per step report

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

Business use case

This report is particularly useful whenever you want to analyze cost and scope trends based on the type of task performed by your vendor (workflow steps). For example, you could analyze DTP costs over time or understand how your post-editing costs have changed across projects.

Running the Project cost, metrics per step report.


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.
