Every great app deserves a great reporting system – and ours just got so much better. We introduce to you, the new Samanage Reports!
We thought long and hard about how to build the new reporting system, and we’d like to highlight some of the aspects we are most proud of:
The look and feel of reports just as awesome as every other part of the app.
We made sure users can easily construct their own reports, filters, query parameters, grouping and sorting with no tedious configuration.
Users can easily access and share their reports.
USING THE NEW REPORTS:
To get started, click on the Report tab in the top menu navigation.
Start by selecting a report from the left. This is the baseline from which you can customize and configure reports to your needs.
Your initial component is the pills menu at the top. This is how you select and configure the report parameters and filters. Clicking on a pill will expand a selection box that allows you to search or select values within that specific filter. Note that the last two pills are Group by and Limit – these control how the data in the report will be grouped and the number of default values that will be displayed.
A number of actions can be made on the displayed graph: for example, click on any of the bars to drill down to the detailed list of objects (in the report above these are incidents). The graph’s legend is also actionable and provides additional filtering options – go ahead and click on it.
MORE TO COME
We’re working on enhancing the new reports with a number of features:
Saving – save a customized version of a report into a “My Reports” section and easily retrieve it for later use.
Scheduling – create a schedule for emails of saved reports.
Sharing – share reports with your colleagues, managers, and other users who are not logged into the app.
We hope you’ll like the new reports and as always, let us know if you have any feedback.New Feature: Reports Just Became Awesome! Click To Tweet
