Report Generator

You have the capability to pull any report from the system as well as the ability to create custom reports with the Report Generator. These reports will export to Excel.

  1. Log into Synerion Enterprise.

  1. The New icon on the top left of the Reports screen allows you to create your own/user defined reports as Microsoft Excel files.

  1. Select the table you wish to build the report from then click Continue to report builder.

  1. On the report builder screen there are three sections:





Section 1: Lists all the fields from the primary table and any related tables in the Synerion database. The fields are organized into data groups which can be expanded by clicking on the icon to the left of the group.

Section 2: Displays the filters that are available for the table you have chosen. These filters are applied when you execute a report which allows you to have only the data you require included in the report.

Section 3: Shows all of the fields that you have selected in Section 1. Here you can move the fields around so that you get them in the order you want.

  1. Click on the Expansion Icon on the first data group that you would like to choose. This will expand the data group and show you all of the available fields within that group.

Double click on a field or data group to add it on the report, it will be displayed on the Section 3. You can also drag a field or (whole) data element from Section 1 and place it on specific location in Section 3. If you add a data element to reports, all fields within that will be added. As an example, if you add Totals Categories then all 50 categories fields will be added to the report.

  1. In Section 3, you can move a field using the icon, Click and hold the icon on field you would like to move and drag and drop on the column where you like to place it. Use the dropdown icon on right of the field header to select Edit Properties for changing Time Format (if needed) or Delete Column to remove a field from report.

The Edit Properties option is only available for fields with time value.
