For this example, we will be building a Measure summary report. Click on the Measures menu in the top navigation and click on Manage Measure Reports.
Click the plus icon to add a new measure summary report.
Name your new summary report and click into the Columns tab.
Click Add Column and check the boxes next to the fields that should be updated for the reporting period. This often includes update fields such as Analysis, Recommendations, Series Name, Series Status, etc. Click Save.
It can also be helpful to include the Owner and Reporting Frequency fields in this report so the user knows who is responsible for the update and how often an update should be made.
Click into the Filter tab.
Click on the Add Filter button.
Use the dropdown menus to set up filter criteria. This will narrow down which Measures are included in the report. For a report that will be used by many different end users to make their updates, we recommend setting up a Current User filter.
This will show only measures that are owned by the viewer of the report, thus the report will look different for each user and will only display the measures that they are responsible for updating.
When you are finished setting up your filter, click Save. Click Save on the overall report as well.
Once saved, users can double click into fields in the report to make updates to the measures they are the owner of! When they are done with their changes they can click on the green check mark to Save or the red X to Discard.
Take things up a notch and reference your new update report through a data grid on a scorecard summary report to make it easy for end users to leverage your new report!
