The reporting engine allows you to run reports for specific date ranges, view specific data by filtering, and export the report to Excel. The organized layout and formatting allow you to select the metrics that you want to view and easily pull the data that you need. Once you have the needed data, you can export the report to an Excel file. You can even schedule to have the report emailed to you and other recipients daily, weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly.
The new reporting engine allows you to run reports for broader periods. You are still able to manually select specific dates to view the report for, but now you are also able to run reports for all of the following periods:
