Building a Report

Think of building a report as answering a question or "Running a Query." The simpler the question is, the easier the answer will be to retrieve and visualize. You can build several reports and group them together in a Dashboard to visualize the answers to many questions in one place.
The first step in building in a report is to Choose an Explore - Daasity has pre-built Explores for you to choose from - or for More Advanced Users - you can Build your Own Explores or Modify Daasity's Explores. Certain Integrations have dedicated Explores as well.
Choosing the correct Explore is important when building a report. The Dimensions and Measuesr in each Explore or unique, and specific for the type of report you can create.
