number of items in report on report top-level

This is just a minor item to save a click or two and speed up the day.  I have several reports, and on the main page listing my reports, I'd like to see a column there showing how many tasks are in each report. 

(here: https://www.wrike.com/workspace.htm#path=reports-new )

In my case, the reason is that I have a couple reports that are intended to catch items that might not be caught by my filters in another report. It would save a click, if I could see that there are 0 items in report without having to open it.

Hey Charles! That's an interesting idea, thanks for sharing your use case here. It sounds like Custom Dashboard Widgets could help in this case. That way you could set up a widget for tasks with certain criteria, then open a Dashboard and see whether there are any tasks in a specific widget. If there are, you'd know that it's time to take a closer look. Have you had a chance to try out this approach? Would love to hear what you think!

Just took a look... I don't have (or don't see) the option, "Advanced filters."  Also... While Dashboard is useful, we've found the reports preferable. This would mean I have to go to two different locations to view what I want, adding complexity.

Thanks for following up, Charles! If there's no "Advanced filters", that means you should already have them expanded. You're right that this adds an additional location to check, but it does help save time in the cases when there are zero tasks in certain widgets, since you know that you don;t need to open those Reports. Widgets don't need to be opened and expanded, they can all be stored in one Dashboard, allowing you to keep that information one click from any other location in the Workspace. :)
