My Custom Reports

This feature is available in Enterprise Edition only

A custom report is similar to a Standard Report, except Custom Reports grants the user the flexibility of adding any report items that would be most beneficial to them. Custom reports show up in the left sidebar, directly under Standard Reports, and are also available for email reports.

In My Custom Reports, a user can create, edit or delete Custom Reports.

  2. Name - Enter a descriptive name for the custom report
  3. Default Date Range - Choose a default date range for the report items in the custom report
  4. Use default date range on all report items - Check this box to allow the same date range to affect all report items in the report. If you wish to allow each report item to override the date range, uncheck the box
