Creating Custom Reports

You can create new custom reports to supplement the existing reports using the Web Reports Wizard. You must be a Report Author or higher to create new reports. For more information, see Setting Security .

The Web Report Wizard consists of several pages. You do not have to access the pages in order. To access a specific page, select it on the list of pages on the left side of the Web Report Wizard

Select File | New | Custom Report.

For more information about creating custom reports, see the MessageStats Reports User Guide.

Creating Custom Graphs

You can use the Graph Wizard to create custom graphs to supplement the graphs and charts available in the existing reports.

The Graph Wizard allows you to create bar charts and stacked bar charts, pie charts, XY graphs, and XY stacked area graphs. You select the data source and choose the fields that are used for the statistical data values, the category labels, and the series labels.

Bar charts are useful for comparing data. They are also used to compare values across categories or to compare the contribution of each value to a total across categories (for example, stacked bars).

Pie charts are useful for viewing proportions or percentages. They visually represent the contribution of each value to a total sum of data, or the component parts of a whole. A pie chart is used to show how a part of something relates to the whole.

A line graph is used to show continuing data; how one thing is affected by another. This kind of graph is used to show the effect of an independent variable on a dependent variable. Line graphs are useful for determining trends.

If you are creating a graph that is similar to a graph in one of the standard reports, you can view the data sources for the standard report and incorporate them into your custom graph.

Select File | New | Custom Graph.

For more information about creating custom graphs, see the MessageStats Reports User Guide.
