3.0 How to make a report analysis.

This article will show you how to create an analysis based on a standard report. The report tool in Antenor BMS is a powerful instrument that will give you access to a lot of useful information about your company. To make it even better, the analysis tool allows you to get a visual image of the data from the report, in the form of graphs. This can be very useful when you need to have a quick and visual overview of the status of your business. 

3.1 Creating a report analysis

In this example we will get a visual image of the numbers and types of incidents, and the cost for the different incident types. One row will show all incidents, the next row will show only the last months incidents.

  • Third graph – Choose fields «Incident type».

This will give you four graphs looking something like this. The two rows are the same, but in the next step we will add a filter to the bottom row.
