Creating a Table

Tables display detailed information in a readable format. The fields included in a data set are automatically available as columns in a table.

Before You Begin

  • Add a Data Set
  • To build and deploy reports, your CommCell user account requires a role with the Add Report permission and an association with the CommCell entity. With the Add Report permission, you will be able to edit or delete any report that you create. If you want to be able to edit or delete reports created by other users, you must have a role with the Edit Report and Delete Report permissions.

    For more information on users, permissions, and associations, see User Administration and Security - Overview.

Procedure

  1. On Web Console, click Reports.

    The Reports page appears.

  2. To open a report where you have already added a data set, from the navigation pane, click Configuration > Reports, and next to the Report Name under Actions, click Edit.
  3. Optional: If your report has multiple pages, click the tab for the page that you want to edit.
  4. To add a data table, on the Visualization tab, drag Data Table into the Drop components to build the report box.
    • To add columns to the table, from the Data Sets list, drag data field names to the Data Table in the order that you want the columns to appear.

      You can add columns from only one data source per table. If you want to include columns from another data source, you must create a separate table.

      By default, the Drop Pivot cell box will display a count of the field that you selected for the Drop Pivot Column.
