Creating and running reports in TDNext

Creating reports for Tasks and Approvals assigned to your group

The UDIT Project Management Office has created a report template that can be copied and configured to pull in all tasks and approvals assigned to you and your group (example: Windows System Engineering, Governance Risk and Compliance, etc.). 

To create a report for a Task or Approval using a template:

  1. Log into TDNext.

  2. Click on the waffle icon at the upper-left side of the page.

  3. Click on the Tickets icon. The Tickets tab opens at the top of the page.

  4. On the left-hand side, scroll down to IT Technology Request Reports

  5. Click one of the reports that has “Template” at the end of its name (for example: My Group and My Technology Request Approvals - Template). 
    A prompt displays on the right side of the page with the default Responsible Group name.

  7. Click Save at the top of the page when you are done.
    DO NOT select the “Copy visibility Permissions?” checkbox as this makes the report available to everyone. You should only make the report available to you or your group.

    A prompt displays confirming that you have copied the report successfully and providing options for what to do next.
