Customizing the report
Typically, the report you just generated will return a lot of results. To make your report more digestible, you can filter ticket results and select different chart types to represent your data. For example, you can filter ticket results to a specific month and select a line chart to show the increase or decrease in resolution time during that month.
To add a month filter to the report
- In the Filters panel, click Add.
- From the list of attributes, click Time - Ticket created > Ticket created - Date.
- Click Apply. The filter is displayed in the Filters panel.
Now, when you click the Ticket created - Date filter, you can select only the months you want to see on the report.
