1. Report sets

Individual report sets can be compiled under "Reports". Create a new set via Add report set. Subsequently, various reports can be added to the set via Add.

The set must be given a name such as "Sales statistics", a title text, location and responsible person can be defined. There are also display options for logo, header, footer, title and period.

The format can be selected in the dropdown menu at Size, e.g. A4 landscape (A4R) or A3 can be selected.

2. Add report to set

Several reports can be added to the set, e.g. "Revenue by customer", "Expense" by "Suppliers", and so on. To do this, select the set and add the desired report to the set at the top via Add .

Each report has individual options and the possibility to add a title and a description text. Useful if the reports are to be shared.

3. Arranging / moving reports

Reports and report sets can be arranged as desired. They can be moved using drag & drop, i.e. click on the element, hold the mouse button and release it again at the desired location where the dashed line appears

Reports can be moved within a set or into another set. It is also possible to drag a report out of a set and place it under All reports below the report sets.

The order of the report sets can also be adjusted the same way.

4. Set time period

The evaluated period of the reports can be displayed independently of the fiscal period. On the right side at the top, a period can be selected, e.g. 2023 / Q2, and all reports will use this period. Next to it, the language of the report can be changed.

In the Text tab, an accompanying text can be created for the respective report.

7. Using formulas with the formula column

The formula column is used to calculate individual key figures. It is available in all tabular reports, but not in graphical reports such as the pie chart.

Via Add Custom a new, custom column is created. Here a title can be defined for it as well as a placeholder to use the value of this column in another formula column as a placeholder.

In the Calculation field, the following operators + - / * can be used to perform the basic arithmetic operations. Use to show the drop-down menu for further calculation operators as well as to choose columns / custom fields.

This column is suitable, for example, to create a column for the margin or other calculations.
