Customize Your Report:

  2. Once customization is complete, click “Run” or “Save & Run” if you plan to reuse the report.

Naming and Saving:

  1. If changing the API name, use underscores instead of spaces.
  2. Select the correct folder, such as “Public Reports,” to define access within your organization.

Step 3: Export and Review
