Before you start creating your report think of the following points:
- What is the purpose of my report?
- What information must my report contain?
- What information would be supplementary to my report?
- In what ways do I want to be able to ‘cut’ my data using filters or searches?
- Which/what date ranges should be included (‘show by time created’ section)
- Who will need access to my report? How can I meet their needs?
- If the report is very complicated with multiple audiences, would different versions of the same report be more appropriate?
