Creating and Modifying Reports


Report Designer provides several pre-designed standard reports based on frequently used ACS reports. To quickly report your latest data, you can use these reports as they are. You can also modify a standard report and save it under a different name.

For a complete list of standard reports, see Available Report Designer Types. If the standard reports don't meet your needs, you can create a new report from scratch.

Whether you create a new report or modify an existing one, the process includes three overall steps:

  1. Selecting a data source
  2. Setting the data sort order
  3. Designing the report

After you have customized a report, you can save it. If you've created and saved several new reports, you may want to organize them. You can also import a designed report or modify a report template that you saved previously.
