Within Teamwork, you can use planned versus actual reports to review the status of tasks across your projects compared with how they were originally planned.
This feature is currently in a Beta release phase and is available on paid per-user subscriptions.
Go to the Reports area of your site and select the Planned vs Actual subsection.
The Reports area is accessible to site administrators and users with project admin permissions on at least one project. Site administrators will see all projects, while project administrators will only see projects where they are an admin.
At the top of the report, select Tasks from the report type dropdown.
In the main area of the report, you will see a series of columns highlighting important properties for each task.
By default, the last project worked on will be selected. You can select another project to view via the project dropdown menu.

Use the arrows to the left of the current timeframe noted in the top left of the report to move to the previous or next time period.
