Report Preview

September 3, 2018

Report preview is a feature designed to make creating brand new reports quicker by eliminating the need to save a report in order to see the report with actual data. It is available in the same view that is used to create or edit the report and it shows a simplified version of the report filled with your data.

Currently, the report preview must be generated manually by clicking on a button located just below the report name:

The preview may only be generated when the report configuration is valid (for example: when both a dimension and a metric are added to a bar chart), otherwise, the button will be in a disabled state.

The preview has the following limitations:

  • It only includes data collected over the last 7 days;
  • The number of rows in tabular reports is fixed;
  • Pagination and sorting by arbitrary column are not available for tabular reports;
  • Explorer uses a simplified layout with inline expansion instead of the layout based on breadcrumbs.
  • Please note that all conditions configured in the “Filters” section will be applied to the preview as well.
