Engage Voice | Creating a Historical report

Last updated on October 01, 2021

Table of contents

Historical reports contain the following folders:
  • Standard: Contains default reports created by the system. Read more in Historical reports reference.
  • Shared: Contains reports shared to you or your team by team members.
  • Private: Contains reports you created.
  • Favorites: Contains reports you marked as favorites. Favorite reports may come from Standard, Shared, or Private folders. 

Helpful hint!

Some parts of the UI will refer to reports as ‘insights.’ Reports are ‘insights’ as well. Still, most of the UI will only refer to reports as ‘reports’ and not ‘insights.’ Insight is a deprecated terminology.
These folders are listed in the left panel. Clicking on a folder will direct you to that folder’s page, where reports are listed in a table, organized in groups. At the top of the page is a search bar where you can search for reports. In the upper right, you’ll find the New report button. In the Shared folder, you’ll also see the New group button in the upper right.

Clicking on the report’s name will bring up a dropdown where you can switch to other reports in the same folder.

Report type configuration

Inside the configuration section are different properties that allow you to customize the look of your report type. These properties are Axes (X- and Y-axis), Legend, Canvas, and Colors.
Depending on the report type you’ve chosen, some properties may not appear. For example, Axes will not appear when you choose a pie graph, and Color properties will be absent in a table.
These configuration properties are: 
  • Axes: Allows you to reposition, hide, and set values for items on your axes (X-axis and Y-axis).
  • Legend: Allows you to reposition the chart legend.
  • Canvas: Provides some cosmetic options for the chart canvas items like data labels and gridline.
  • Colors: Changes the color of your report. If you choose a bar graph, you can customize bar colors. For line graphs, you can customize line colors, and so on for other report types.
