Reports - Creating a New Report

Have more questions? Submit a request

Introduction

There are many seeded Reports in your database, and you may create a new Report at any time. The benefit of creating your own Reports, as opposed to solely using the seeded ones, is that you can create multiple versions of the same type of report. For example, you could have two reports targeting the data differently to solve different problems. Also, you could have different reports for different users and hide sensitive fields (like revenue) on one of them.
 

Getting Started

Login to the Administrative Console of your database, click on the "Reports" link and click on the "Add New Report" button.
