Describing your reports is an excellent way to give other users context to what your report is all about. Before, it was only possible to describe your entire report, giving detail into what it was about, why it is important, how the data is relevant etc. Now, it is possible to describe both your entire report and each individual section. This is for users to better accurately describe what they are reporting on and bring further context to their data. Let’s see how to do that below.

Adding a description to a report

  1. Open a report you have previously created, or start a new report by clicking ‘Create Report‘ in the top right hand of the screen.
  2. Then click ‘add description’ as highlighted below.

3. You can now add your description in the box.

Adding a description to a section

  1. Open a report you have previously created, or start a new report by clicking ‘Create Report‘ in the top right hand of the screen.
  2. Then create a new section by clicking the plus icon.
  3. Now you can add both a title and a description to your section, as seen in the image below.

Note: If you’re unsure about the title or description of your section, it is possible to create your section first then add a title and description after.

Design tools

There is a range of tools to help your description stand out, including:

  • bullet points and numbered lists
  • hyperlinks to other pages or reports
  • highlighting

 

and so on. The toolbar can be found here.
