Managing Custom Reports

Use the Custom Reports dialog to manage your custom reports.

Using custom reports, you can design your own tables and graphs. You can create a custom report by creating dimensions and measures you want to report on, or by combining preconfigured dimensions and measures included in Webtrends. Webtrends also includes many preconfigured custom reports, which you can enable in any profile and add to your report templates. To generate a custom report, associate the custom report with a profile, add it to the template used by the profile, and run an analysis.

Note: Some custom reports require you to enable Visitor History for the associated profile.

Field Descriptions


Specifies the name of the custom report. If different, the report title is appended to Name and is italicized.


Specifies whether a custom report is globally associated with all profiles. If the report is applied globally, this column shows a check mark.

Express Analysis

Specifies whether a custom report can be used with Express Analysis profiles. A custom report is Express Analysis compliant only if all its dimensions and measures are compliant with Express Analysis. If the custom report is Express Analysis-compliant, this column shows a check mark.

Visitor History

Specifies whether a custom report relies on Visitor History data. If this column shows a check mark, you should enable Visitor History data collection in any profiles associated with this custom report.

SmartView Compatible

Specifies whether a custom report works with Webtrends Advanced SmartView. For more information, see “Installing and Using SmartView” in the SmartView User’s Guide.


Specifies whether the Custom Report settings may be edited by Webtrends administrators only.


Specifies the category of custom report elements to which the report belongs. Categories are a management tool that can help you keep track of custom reports, measures, dimensions, and filters.
