Writing your own reports in Rational Team Concert 2.0

With the recent release of Rational Team Concert 2.0, we now ship more than 50 out-of-the-box reports that are ready to help you track the progress of your development. Having said that, and knowing how creative our users are, there is a whole world of potential reports that I’m sure you’d like to add to Team Concert.

I’m pleased to announce a series of videos that we hope will help users who want to get started writing their own reports, as well as those more experienced with report authoring who want help with a particular aspect of data collection or presentation.

We start our series off with a “Hello World” video, which walks you start to finish through the authoring and deployment of a simple report.

Our follow-up videos demonstrate using the results of work item queries in a report, reporting across item links, reporting on custom work item attributes (2 part series: Part 1, Part 2), and externalization and localization of reports.

To coincide with these videos, we’ve created a wiki page called “Reports Central” where we will be making the artifacts from these videos available for download.

We welcome your ideas for future videos! If there’s a reporting topic you’d like us to cover, please let us know in the comments and we’ll do our best to add it to our video series.
