Create and edit report templates

You can create report templates to make it easier to run the same report multiple times. Templates contain saved search fields, values, display options, and a name.

  2. Select Create Report Template  
  3. Enter the Template Name
  4. Select OK

You can adjust the search fields and values used in your newly created or existing templates.

  1. Confirm that the name of the template you want to edit is displayed beside Active Template
    • If it is not active, select Use¬†to open the template you want to edit.
  2. Select the Search Fields tab
  3. Expand the available search fields  
    • Each report type has slightly different groups of search fields depending on the type of data you're reviewing.
  4. Set the values and ranges for any fields  
  5. You can add and configure additional data sets for your report template by selecting + Add Data Set
    • Data sets allow you to run and compare multiple reports within one. Results are displayed in one tab per data set.
    • Select¬†Triangle down icon.¬†on a data set tab in order to rename, clear, duplicate, or remove it. ¬†
  6. After you make your adjustments, you have the following options:
    • To run the report with your new settings, select Run or Export
    • To create your own copy of a shared report template with these changes, select Duplicate Template
    • To update your personal report template with these changes, select Save Template ¬†

Search templates you've created in advanced search are also accessible from the Search Fields tab.

To learn more about creating search templates here or in advanced search, see Create advanced search templates.

Edit template display options‚Äč

Before sharing or running your report, confirm that the display options are properly configured under the Options tab.

To learn more about the available display options, see Edit report display options.

Manage report templates‚Äč

After you've created a report template it will appear in the list under Your Templates.

You can use the buttons beside each template's name to duplicate, rename, or delete it.

Duplicating a template can be helpful when you want to create a new report template that is similar to an existing one. It is faster than starting with completely empty search fields and display options.
