If you are looking for the best way to get started with the Businessmap Reports, first check out the dedicated article.
The “Blockers” report displays data for each block event that occurred, and all its respective data - Block time, Block reason, and in which workflow/section/column the card has been blocked.
The following fields will be always present in the report:
- card id
- blocker name
- blocker comment
- block start/end date
- block time
- blocked in workspace/board/workflow/section/column/lane.
This report can pull block events for archived cards, but it doesn't consider cards that have been discarded.
How to configure your report?
The Date Range field (1) in the left-hand menu is a mandatory field. When configuring the time period you want to run the report for, you can change the default “is” operator for the reporting period by clicking on the small down-facing arrow, and choosing one of the other available operators, e.g. before, after, is between.
The “Refine report criteria” (2) menu allows you to narrow down your criteria by applying one or more filters and get results for a specific board, user, type, etc.
When ready, click on the magnifying glass (3) to get the results in a pivot view - more on this view can be found in the dedicated article.
Pivot View is the default view for this report, but you can switch to Table view by clicking on the Table View (4) icon next to the Configure Results in the top right corner of the window. You can further use the “Configure Results” (5) button to include additional card fields to the report, e.g. Owner, Priority, Type.
Important: The positional filters (board, column, lane, workflow, workspace) check the historical position that the block took place in, not the current position of the card, and therefore - return results regardless of the current position of the card.
Please note that there is a limit of 10K results in the Businessmap UI, and a 50K result limit for export and Power BI reports. This applies to all other reports from the Reporting Tool as well.
