Building Reports in Backstop is Now Easier Than Ever.

By Prashant Patel

We know the value of reporting to our users. Whether you are new to building reports in Backstop or the primary report creator on your team, you need to be able to build reports quickly and confidently.

As product manager responsible for reporting solutions, I have worked over the past several quarters with users to identify the primary obstacles to report creation. Today we are excited to introduce new solutions, which address these needs and lay the groundwork for additional enhancements this year.

I’d like to call out a few of the major enhancements: 

  • Import enables you to reuse existing reports, without the need to start from scratch.
  • A new field picker provides improved field selection and faster searching.
  • The ability to preview results while building reports enables you to verify fields before running the report.
  • New Save options allow you to share reports with your colleagues directly from the results screen.
I believe that these updates will make your reporting experience easier than ever. We at Backstop will continue to work with you to answer the end-to-end reporting challenges you face. More to come!

Remember, we are always looking for ways to make you even more productive. So please share your thoughts, feedback, comments, and suggestions with us.
