Creating a Headline Report

Headline reports contain no attributes, although they may include one or more filters.

Headline reports could be useful for displaying any number of key metrics:

  • The number of widgets created in a specified period (i.e., this week)
  • The sales amount for a specified period (i.e., this quarter)
  • The number of support tickets created or solved in a given period
  • The current profit margin for a certain product

When placed on a dashboard, headline reports display the name of the report metric by default.

 

You can modify this text by double-clicking this area of the headline report while in Edit Mode. 

      

Resize headline reports by selecting the report on a dashboard and dragging the markers that appear along the report's perimeter.
