Until I get the new implementation working property, there will be two custom report variations:
- I’m removing
Fromfield from custom reports. Custom reports will be centered around transactions. All data which is entered in Manager are transactions and if they are not transactions (e.g. customer record), they are connected to transactions. For example, if you need custom report which shows balances of customers, you are still building a report which summarizes transactions by customer.
- When selecting fields, the previous implementation was an endless list of attributes, inner attributes, inner inner attributes… you get the idea. New implementation shows more compact approach. For example, to select
Bank Account, you first select
Bank Account, then
Namefield. In other words, every single select box has sane number of options and I’m looking further to implement so only those which are actually used in your database are shown.
- You can
Group byby multiple fields.
- There is now checkbox to collapse groups which will give you totals per group only.
But most of all, the new implementation has a lot more data exposed so you can do more interesting combinations. For example, if you want to see qty totals sold by inventory item then by customer, here is the custom report for that:
Obviously if you have custom fields, you can come up with even more interesting reports.
Anyway, let me know what kind of report you want to generate and let’s figure out how to make it possible using this framework.
