Hey everyone, this is Malik with Cloud Adoption Solutions. And today we’re here to talk about summary reports. Now, summary reports are very important feature that you should all know how to do in Salesforce. Because not only does it let you summarize and group your data, but it also allows you to use some very nice charts that will help you visualize your data. So you can see your data as a whole piece instead of just as far as when you’re looking at it on like the ListView page.

To create a summary report, we’re first going to click new report. And once this screen comes up, you’re going to select opportunities, we’re going to make an opportunity report, right? Select opportunities started report. And now sometimes if you see this, and as saying there’s no record return, returning, there’s no records populating on screen, usually, what you have to do is change your filter settings. So we’ll just do for all time, which will show us all of our records from that we ever had, depending on the date, and we got records. Alright, so we’re going to remove some of these fields to clean up the screen a little bit, clean up the opportunity owner to Okay. All right. So what we have here now isn’t a summary report yet. This right now, the tabular report, tick, make this a summary report, we just have to take one of these columns and drag them up to group. And we’re going to group it by the rows so that we can see specifically which opportunities are together.

So now we have three opportunities here with the United oil installation. And couple of these other opportunities are one or two, but that’s okay. So now that we have grouped our data by rows, what we have to do, if we want to add a chart also to our summary report, we just click up here to add a chart. And now we can see some data. Actually, I’m going to change this to instead of opportunities, we can group it by account name, give us a better view of a better looking chart. All right, so now we’re going to click on chart. And there we go. Now if you want to change your chart, all you have to do is click the little

gear icon in the corner. You can view it as a line graph or donut. Probably one of my favorite because it has all these colors here or a funnel that remember to choose the best graph that will be able to visualize your data in the best way not because it looks cool, but because it’s useful. So now that we have it like this, you’re going to save this report, you can name it anything you want. And name a summary report. Gonna name opportunities Summary Report. And then, as always, make sure to save your report before running it so you don’t lose it.

And if you’re going to share this with everybody else you can put in a public folder. But for right now, we just put it in our private folder. And only you will see stuff in your own private folder. So you save it there. Once that’s done, we’re going to click Run. And there you have it, your opportunity Summary Report. Thank you everybody for watching this video.
