In Microsoft Project 2013 you can find a great set of new Reports. Because this is still Beta 1, we can expect more Reports in final version.
When I am talking about Reports, I mean that now, you create own own Reports, and you Modify existing Reports as well.
I will show you one new Report, called Burndown. It is very well known Report in agile (Scrum, for instance) methodology!
OK. I will create a simple Project first.
Step 1. – I will add two Tasks, and I will link them:
Step 2. – I am going to create Resource for my Project:
Step 3. – I am going to assign Resource to Tasks:
Step 4- I am going to save the Baseline:
Now I will look at the Burndown Report:
and I will get:
Nothing? This is a Bug? No it is not! I will click on left chart and I will get:
When I click on Edit button I will get:
I will change Units from Weeks to Days and I will get:

Now I will use Task Usage View, and I will put some Actuals:
Now the Burndown Report looks like this:
If I want to modify this Report I can select, for example, Right Chart and do some modifications:
I have renamed the Report, and I have added some fields.
And because I know that you love me so much I will add my personal picture in that report, just for you:
Beautiful Report Engine in MS PROJECT 2013! And this is Beta 1. I am impressed! The old, poor Reports are gone forever!
