Introduction

Zoho Reports (http://reports.zoho.com) is a 3rd party custom report and dashboard builder available as an optional add-on item. If your agency doesn’t currently have this option and you are interested in learning more, please Contact Support.

Within Zoho, you have the ability to create many different charts based off of the data that comes from extendedReach. Chart creation is a great tool to help visualize data.

Video Overview

Getting Started

To get started creating a chart, click on the green Create New button and select New Report. From there, click on Chart View. Zoho will then prompt you to select a base table for your report.

Click on the desired base table to begin creating your chart and press Ok. On the right-hand side, you will see a list of fields that pull from extendedReach. On the Graph tab, you can drag and drop the fields you want into the Zoho fields.

Filtering

You can also add filters using the Filters Tab. Drag and drop the fields you want to filter your data with (e.g. agency branches, placement types, dates, etc.). Similar to the Filters Tab, the User Filters Tab allows users to segment that data using a dropdown menu. Once again, you can drag and drop the fields you want to use in the box (e.g. dates, placement types, etc.)
