open bugs summary table.

The open bugs summary table (with the koala) seems to be spanning the entire fogbugz database. 

Is there a way to get that summary on a per project basis?

Sure, just click "Filter" and choose the project you want.

Not quite - the summary still shows bugs that are unrelated to the project.  For instance, there are developers that don't have bugs on this particular project, but they still come up in the "assigned to:" list.  And the open/closed bugs count is global instead of based on the project. 

For the "higher ups", I think that summary column would be useful, except that I need it for my project, not for all projects.  I need to summarize how many open/closed there are for my project, how many people are assigned bugs on my project, the various counts at each priority for only my project.

I still missing something completely obvious or is that not available right now?

If not available right now, can i get a  pointer to where in the asp we could try and massage the data that goes into that summary report builder?

thanks much.

Oh ... sorry! I didn't realize you meant the summary part.

The easiest way to do it without coding is to use Microsoft Excel to slice & dice the live data. Michael has written an article about it here:

Or you could create fancy-shmancy printed reports using Microsoft Access:

In Version 3.0 - are there any new reports, that could give the high level status/summary on a per-project basis?
