Project rollups are totals of task values



Project rollups are just totals. They are totaled-up values in the Project Task view.

Rollups let you see at-a-glance the totals for all tasks. For instance, you might be interested to know how many hours are estimated for a certain project. This would be the total of the ‘Duration’ for all tasks. The task hours ‘roll up’ to the project level where you see the total.

Another example might be ‘Actual work’ which is the number of hours entered into the timesheet. All the tasks total up at the project level so you can see how many hours have been logged for the entire project. The total value you see is called the rollup.

Rollups occur automatically. You don’t need to do anything to cause a rollup. Totals are automatically calculated anytime a project task is modified or when time is entered into the timesheet. They are totaled up, even if a certain column is not being displayed. That means you can begin displaying rollup columns and immediately see their totals.

Here is a list of columns that automatically roll up to the subproject and project levels.
