3. Create a Report
After searching the data, user can click the “Save As” button and then select the “Report” option to generate a report. See the Figure 1 for details.
It will pop up a new window, user can enter the report title and select “Yes” for “Time Range Picker”, then click the “Save” button.
The pop-up page is updated with “Your Report Has Been Created” message. It also has three buttons and four links for Permission, Schedule, Acceleration, and Embed.
A report is created successfully at this step.
4. Edit a Report
To edit a report, user clicks the Edit link for the selected report.
It will display details for the selected report. It has an Edit link and More Info button. Click “More Info” to view additional information for the report. Click “Edit” to update the report.
5. Delete a Report
On the report detail page, click on the Edit drop-down button and select the “Delete” option to delete it.
