CM’s statistics report is a quantitative report generated in Word which allows users to select any existing entity in the system and report on that entities classification data.
1. Project Selection: You can choose which Project’s data you want to include in your report without having to log out of your Projects.
2. Select Report Fields: Choose which fields from the main entity you’re reporting on you want to include. In this report, there will be one page per field.
3. Show: Select the amount of each field you wish to be represented. If there are more than the option you’ve selected, for example, more than 5 Issues reported, the top 5 will be shown, with the rest of the data consolidated into ‘other’ at the bottom of the table.
4. Relationship Totals: This will default to ‘Do Not Include’ which will only report on the Main entity’s data. You can select another related entity to the Main entity to report on. For example, When the Main entity is Events, it is common to include Stakeholder Relationship totals. This will include two additional columns in the report. One for distinct, and one for Total. Distinct indicates how many unique Stakeholders were involved in those Events. Total tallies up every Stakeholder related to Every Event, even if it’s the same Stakeholder repeatedly.
5. Select Related Fields: This allows you to select which fields in the entity you’ve selected in the ‘Relationship Totals’ drop-down to include. There will be one page per field.
6. Main Entity: This is the main entity type you’re reporting on.
This type of report is most commonly used to report on Events during a certain period which will show you an overview of who you’re engaging with, what you’re engaging with them about, and through what channels.
