Team administrators, translation coordinators, field coordinators, translation consultants among others often want to know the status of a project. This is important for managing the team and the planning of translation checking sessions. The Project Plan and Assignments & Progress window can be used for this purpose, but there is another feature in Paratext called “Project Health Report” is quick and organized in a compact way that might suit the needs of administrators and translation consultants for an overview of a project that can be printed or saved as a PDF. Besides it compactness, the other thing that a project health report can do that the Assignments & Progress window cannot do is combine the status of several projects into one document. Below is an example Project Health Report for the EZPEZ project.
The Project Health Report feature can be found under the main project window. (If you want to make a report for several projects, you can make the report from any window for any of the included projects.)
If you would like to know more about how to use Project Health Reports, then type “health report” in Paratext.
Next time you need to know the status of a project, try generating a project health report. It may be just enough information for a report to your supervisor or funding agency.
