@LillySantiago there's a ton of data there, Suzie has been on QT for a while. Do you have the premium QT subscription? If yes, you have access to the reports.

@LBasher7 thank you so much! I just took a look and there's, unfortunately, no data there. But my FR is only two weeks old. Sigh. I guess I have a lot of waiting to do!

Suzie read my full in 3 months earlier this year. But there are also the reports that Query Tracker offers that can give you an idea of her average timelines, too.
