Finding the Right Report

Pie chartSince the 'Reports' section was added to the Analytics console, the number of reports in this section has been growing steadily. Right now there are already 46 reports in this section and this number is only going to grow.

Because the list is already quite long, you may not instantly spot the report you are looking for. Fortunately, the recent usability enhancement of the Filter functionality is there to help you.

After you have accessed the 'Reports' section of the Analytics console, you can immediately start to enter some text in the Search box that is available above the list of reports. That limits the list to the reports that include your text in their title.

Try filtering the list by entering 'problem', 'know' or 'sla' in Search box. That will demonstrate how useful filtering can be when you need to run a report.
