The URL (Normalized) dimension can have many long URLs, so you can use dimensional filtering to only show the top 25 values of the whitelist. To make the filtering work properly, you must create a whitelist first. Then, configure your dimension filter in Report Builder to only show the top 25 values of the whitelist. Otherwise, you will need to manually add and remove constants from the whitelist.
Fields can be set as dimensions
In the Report builder, you can choose to use any of the available measures. These Report builder and dimension features are quantitative measurements that you can include in your reports. You can find these measures in the drop-down list. These dimensions can be sorted and filtered to produce custom reports. Moreover, they can be saved and accessed in the content pane and navigation pane. You can find your saved reports in the My Reports and Public Reports sections.
Fields can be set as measures
Measures are a kind of calculation that combines multiple numerical values into one. These calculations can also include functions. Measures are typically grouped into two groups: report-specific and all user-defined measures. Measures can only be added to the Y-axis and are visible to users who have the appropriate roles. These fields can be empty when you first start designing a new report. To make use of them, you need to select one from each group.
Fields can be filtered
When a field has multiple values, you can apply a filter to a subset of records. For example, if you want to view all records whose value is “employer”, you can apply a filter to a subset of these records. The derived filter value can be applied to fields that have multiple values. To filter a field by its value, you can type a ‘%’ sign before the field value.
Fields can be resized
One of the many ways to resize fields in report builder is to create a text box that is the same width as the rest of the report. The text box can be centered at the bottom of the design surface or the report item’s section. You can also resize the dimensions of text boxes by selecting Customize Design Surface. You can also change the background color of text boxes.
Fields can be repositioned
You can reposition fields in the report builder to reshape data for your reports. To move an element in the report, you must first select it. Then, click on the cross-arrow next to the field and drag it to a new location. You can also reposition dimensions to better display data on a larger scale. You can use this option to adjust the width and height of your report elements.
Functions can be applied to the Focus range
One important aspect of report design is that you must be aware of how logical functions apply to your data. These functions allow you to pass values in the Focus range using index order, which can be advantageous for creating a report with many values. The catchall final logical statement prevents null values from being passed. The choose function allows you to pass an index integer value that relates to the same position in a list.
Report parameters must have default values
To use default values in a report, you must add the parameter to the table of users. The data type of the parameter must match the field in the SalesRegion data set. The parameter must also be hidden. You can add a parameter using the expressions button or text box. After creating the parameter, make sure that the default value of the field is set to the value you want it to be. Once you have added the parameter to the table, you can now start creating your report.
