Custom Reports Overview

August 30, 2018

Custom Reports allow you to see the results in real-time and benefit from a more efficient data architecture with no processing issues. Piwik PRO utilizes ClickHouse technology which can store and process metadata on 10 billion events with over 1000 attributes per event.

The report visualization templates are flexible and you can share results that your team will easily understand. You are able to create reports using flat or nested tables (with a number of nesting levels available). You can mix your tables with a variety of charts, apply filters and segments to your reports on the fly and get a clear visual representation of your report.

Custom Reports is a new module independent from the Analytics. Data is still tracked by the Analytics module and copied to Custom Reports. Since the new module is an improvement on top of the old Analytics module, there might be discrepancies between modules in reports due to different definitions of metrics, broader definition of the event (action in Analytics) etc. For details go to the Custom Reports metrics article.

This module contains the following articles:

  • Custom Reports Glossary
  • Custom Reports metrics
  • Creating a report
  • Report preview
  • Converting dimensions
  • Segments in Custom Reports
  • Custom Dimensions and Custom Variables in Custom Reports
