      • Date [in Western European Time, WET].

      • Target language.

      • Action name.

      • Additional information.

    • Project delivery dates – This report is a summary of when each step in the workflow was finished, for each file in the project, and how that time compares to the due dates. The column headers in the report are:

      • ID – project ID.

      • Name – project name.

      • Customer.

      • Source Language.

      • Created – the date and time the project was created.

      • Due Date – the date and time the project was due

      • Target Language – the target languages can be expanded or collapsed using the little + in the left-hand column of the spreadsheet.

      • File – the files for each target languages can be expanded or collapsed using the little + in the left-hand column of the spreadsheet.

    • LQA report – This report evaluates an entire project. The calculations in this report type are based on the project Metrics. This report lists all errors that occurred in all target languages and all project files in all workflow steps in which the Project Manager has selected one of the following options for the LQA parameter, in the Workflow editor:

      • Yes, save result in user record.

      • Yes, don’t save result in user record.

      The evaluated and the LQA step need to be finished in XTM Workbench and all relevant segments must be set to Completed green-tick.svg for the report to be generated. Additionally, linguists must stay assigned to both steps even after the LQA step has been finished.

      • Severity multipliers.
