Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Various data-driven insights, facts, and figures are necessary to make informed decisions regarding the project and ensure its successful delivery. How do project reports help in that, and what are the essential ones that every project manager must keep a tab on?
