How to edit an existing report

Editing allows users to change a report's name, location, or parameters—like filters and summaries.

It's a good idea to create a new copy of an existing report before editing it, keeping the original as a backup.

To edit a report

  1. Click the folder name that contains the report you'd like to change and then click the report name.

  3. To edit the report, make your changes to the fields, filters, and summaries that you'd like to modify, just as you would when creating a new report.

    If you have an active alert for the report, you won't be able to edit a related summary row unless you deactivate the alert. This is because the alert uses summary calculations as its trigger.
  4. To make changes to a report's chart, click the Edit or Delete icons above the chart.

  5. To change the name of a report or the folder where it is saved, click the Report Properties button to edit those properties.
