The dashboard is a way of keeping reports and widgets all in one place, where they can be viewed and organized. The dashboard can be separated into different tabs, on which reports and widgets can be placed.
Viewing the Dashboard
To access the dashboard, click the Dashboard tab. You will see a screen like this:
This session, provided by Product Support Specialist Alex Allen, introduces the new Report Writer interface. This short introduction will give you the basics needed to become familiar with the tool and transition to the new user interface effectively.
Reports can be configured to return results in a variety of different ways. Graphs and Instruments are often used to show the data in a more graphical format. This manual will take you through some examples and explain how to create reports that display them as various types of graphs and instruments.
Creating a Graph Report
Grouping data means to have one record of data represent others that belong in its group. If more than one record falls into a similar group of records, only one of those records will be used in the result table. That single record will represent the group of records it belongs to.
Once all of the fields have been added (with their names listed under Output Columns), it is time to design the specific attributes of the query by using sorts, filters, orders, and grouping. What follows is a discussion of the basic use of the different options available on the report edit page.
You can also add supplementary tables to the report if you need to pull information from fields not available in the main table. Click the + in the Join Info column to choose from a list of tables related to the main table.
The next step is to add fields to the report. First, click the Columns tab. The left side of this screen has the heading Tables and shows the table(s) that the report is using. The right side, which is marked Output Columns, will list the fields that are on the report.
