BriteData Step 1: Define your report

You can use BriteData to build a new report or customize an existing report. The first step requires you to define your report—enter basic information about your report, including the report name, description, category, type, run schedule, custom start date, and export option.

Note: Before you build a report, review BriteData constraints and assumptions.

For contextual help, select the information icons next to any applicable field on the screen.

To access BriteData to build a new report:

  1. Select Reports in the BriteCore menu, then either:
    1. Select BriteData from the Reports menu.
    2. Select Report List from the Reports menu, then select Add Report.
      1. The Add Report dialog box will display: Would you like to base the new report on an existing report? Select No. You will be directed to BriteData.
  2. At the top of the 1: Define your Report screen in BriteData, you can lock your report by selecting Lock Report. If locked, select the Unlock Report to unlock it. Once you lock a report, no one can edit it.

Note: You can’t unlock a report once you lock and save the report.
