Custom Reports Guide: Getting Started

Custom reports allow you to filter and manipulate data based on the information found on your website and app, cover consumer info, payments (if your project is integrated with a payment gateway), and sessions.

Creating a Custom Report

Follow the steps below to create a custom report and save the report for future use.

  1. Under My Reports on the left side of the page, click +New to create a new report file


  2. Select which type of report you want to generate.


    The report types correspond with the information gathered on your web pages, data capture/check-in apps, as well as session and payment data.

    • Consumer Info: includes filters related to personal information such as first and last name, date of birth, postal code, city, whether or not a person has opted in for email communications, etc.
    • Payment: reports also have some of the same filters as consumer info, except payment reports can also include filters covering payment amounts, the currency used, payment date, receipt records, etc.
    • Sessions: reports include filters covering session dates, times, and locations, event capacity, number of people registered and waitlisted, and more.
