Reports for New AgileApps User Interface

From AgileApps Support Wiki

Reports function like Views to organize your data for display and analysis, and provide a visual representation of your data, customized to present Performance Indicators as a Dashboard view of your business.

Unlike Views, where data is restricted to a single object, Reports can present data from any Object or from multiple objects (Database Views).


Note: For the Legacy user interface, see Reports.

About Reports

The platform's reporting engine provides a full set of options for users to dissect and refine into the format needed to make strategic business decisions or to monitor key performance indicators. Data can be filtered, ordered, color-coded, grouped (computed), and charted to create management reports that give you visual insights into your business.

Each application in the platform includes a group of standard reports. You can modify an existing report, or build new custom reports on an ad hoc basis. In addition, these presentation features are included:

  • Build a tabular report and optionally group information by rows
  • Provide basic computation functions with optional row/column count
  • Color coding
  • Chart data in a variety of graphic styles
  • Join and present data from multiple objects to form ad-hoc reports (Database Views)
  • Display reports on the Dashboard as a Widget (chart-based widgets are especially powerful)
  • Export the report to PDF or to CVS file
  • Build ad hoc fields that support complex data modeling and analysis with Computed Fields and Summary Computed Fields


A variety of chart formats are available:

  • Pie
  • Funnel
  • Line
  • Bar Chart
  • Meter Gauge

Tabular Reports

Tabular reports display data in rows and columns, as a table, with optional Color Code to highlight significant rows.

Reports in PDF Format

A Single Record can be printed as a PDF file.

Views, Reports and Object Inheritance

When creating Views or Reports in objects that are part of an Object Inheritance model, it is important to consider the following:

A Report or View that has no Filters will return all records from the designated object, including records from all parent object(s) in the hierarchy (following the path up to the root level).

To restrict the View or Report to only the desired objects, include the Object Name field in the Selected Fields list, and create a Filter on Object Name field to select only the objects of interest.
