REPORTS & DASHBOARDS
Reports and dashboard
Salesforce provides powerful reporting and generation tools on the data stored in the objects.
In reports data displayed is as per running user's security access. Reports can be run on both standard and custom objects. Reports are stored in folders. Users with access to these folders can run the reports.
Reports data is always generated in real time. When a report is saved, reports configuration parameters are stored - but the generated data is not stored.
Reporting businesses live and die by it, employees live and die by it. So why is there such confusion over reports and dashboards? The term reporting has often been used to describe both reports and dashboards, with users commonly referring to simple tables placed within dashboards, as reports. Traditionally, most IT led business intelligence (BI) tools have been focused on reports that provide users with very little interactivity and visuals. However, modern data discovery tools revolutionized this and introduced tools that allow for exceptional interactive visualization, often delivered to greater audiences by means of dashboards. Today, the majority of BI tools administer either reports or dashboards (or have tendencies to focus primarily on one and egress limited capabilities to the other).
The issue that arises when deciding between using reports or dashboards, is that both terms are often construed as being synonymous with each other. The differences between both deliverables are often difficult to interpret. Oftentimes, there’s disconnect in regards to reporting and dashboards.
The best way to distinguish the difference between the two concepts, is to highlight each terms’ disparities. It’s important to understand that each medium is generalizable, as there are always exceptions to each respective case.
Enterprise reporting, or production reporting, is a method by which reports are distributed within an organization to provide users with support for their work. Generally, in traditional BI tools, reports are primarily text and table based, and periodically include visual components. More often than not, these reports are scheduled for automatic distribution, as they tend to be used on a more regular basis. These reports can be arranged via pagination, which is the exact placement of elements on a page. This technique is capable of complex display logic for creating printed reports or online operational reports. Even though losing popularity, paginated reports will continue to be a standard reporting method when it comes to displaying raw level data or pixel perfect data views designed for printing. It’s important to note that reports can be lengthy and span multiple pages. As a result, the creation of reports can be a bit more complex requiring a more technical user. Reports are, in summation, commonly comprised of background data and other decision informing information.
Adversely, dashboards present the most important information required to achieve specific business objectives, at a glance. They are designed for at-a-glance monitoring and decision making. Generally, a dashboards’ objective is to present all necessary content on one screen, and drive decision making without overwhelming the eye. A dashboard will focus on visual, interactive features and will allow users to physically ‘drill’ into information. Dashboards predominantly focus on decision driving, rather than informing, and are targeted at Key Performance Indicators, or other decision driving information.
Now, these are all generalizations. Every dashboard does not need to be interactive and every report does not need to be static. A good example of a non-tabular report is a multi-page, pixel perfect report, which incorporates maps, data images, data labels, and other report elements that can be manipulated to a very precise degree:
Creating Reports in Salesforce is probably my favourite and the one I would recommend users of Salesforce to concentrate most on. There are a few reasons for this; the only other ways to get specific data out of Salesforce is List views and Searching. List views are fine for small chunks of data but you cannot see specific stats, e.g. revenue total of pipeline. Searching to find data can obviously only find singular records or groups of records linked by a common name or similar. Reports on the other hand can find all the records you want to see, you can run stats, see visual graphs, put this data onto Dashboards and of course will update themselves as data in Salesforce changes. Over my years speaking to Salesforce users quite a few of them take a looks at the reports tab and give up after just looking at the daunting screen, others give it a go but never really go further than creating a few basic reports that doesn’t really show them what they want. This is completely understandable as if you are never shown then how are you to know, but hopefully this guide can explain a few key bits about how to use reports. HINT – It’s seriously easy.
What is a report type?
Custom Report Types are a fantastically easy way to create complex, dynamic reports that go beyond standard Salesforce reports. A report type can be looked at as a template or framework that tells Salesforce which objects/relationships to look at and which fields to grab. By default, you get given various standard reports that Salesforce generates automatically for you. These reports link standard objects together like Accounts with Opportunities, Opportunities with Products, as well as reporting on Objects on their own, e.g. “Cases”. If you also create custom objects and add lookup/master-detail relationships, Salesforce will automatically create standard report types for these as well, such as Opportunities with Shipping or Opportunities and Shipping (Depending on whether it is a lookup or master-detail).
To create reports outside of these standard reports we need to create custom report types. Custom report types can include up to 4 objects in a parent-child mode, include fields from lookups to other object as well as a whole bunch of other features, let’s take a deeper look.

What is report builder?
Report builder, a powerful drag-and-drop editor, is the standard tool for creating and editing reports. If your organization is still using the old report wizard, you should upgrade to report builder.
Report builder is a visual editor for reports. The report builder screen lets you work with report fields and filters, and shows you a preview of your report with just some of the data.
All profiles get access to the report builder by default. (You may continue to see the “Report Builder” permission in permission sets and profiles and the PermissionSet and Profile objects in the API, though the upgrade overrides those settings.)
The old report wizard is available only to users in Accessibility Mode.
Group and Professional Edition organizations can use report builder.
You get scatter charts, a new chart type for reports.
New organizations automatically get the latest version of report builder. If you don't see the Report Builder Upgrade section on the User Interface Settings page, the upgrade has already been enabled for your organization.
