Available in BrightWork Reporter and Project Metrics, the Work Cache data source is designed as an alternative to work and issue reports that report across multiple sites. The Work Cache enables faster cross-site reporting. Before you first use the Work Cache it must be enabled.
Note: The Work Cache is security smart - it will only show users the work items they have permission to see.
Items from the following lists can be included in the Work Cache: Project Tasks, Project Goals, Project Issues, Project Risks, Project Change Requests, and Project Requests.
Note: There are some work items that are not mirrored to the Work Cache. These exceptions are outlined here.

The Work Cache has Views that can be selected in BrightWork Reporter and Project Metrics. By default, the views provided filter work items by Open Work, My Work, or Issues.
