What are Custom Reports and How Do I use Them?

Learn how create and manage your own custom reports in Elevar.

Instead of sending you through a sea of insights and goals within your dashboard, you can use the default custom reports (ex. Paid Search Performance) that are predefined in Elevar. You also have the option to create your own customized ones!

Reports allow you to: 

  • Combine multiple insights and goals to track together in one place
  • Set up recurring emails with updated links to the report
  • Create a shareable URL that removes Elevar branding 
  • Monitor your pass/fail metrics in aggregate 

Report Configuration

Use the main navigation in your Elevar Dashboard to go to Reports, and select Create New Report

Reports Data

On the create new report screen, you can:

  • Select a custom background color for your shareable report header
  • Define your report name, summary, start, and end date
  • Set up recurring reporting rules
  • Define a password to view your shareable report URL
Create New Report

If you are setting up as a recurring report then you'll see additional options, such as frequency and recipients. You can choose to have this report emailed daily, weekly, or monthly. 

The email that your recipients receive will simply contain a link to the shareable report URL (shown below). 

Selecting Insights and Goals

Once you choose your basic report settings, select Continue at the top of the page. Next, add the insights and goals you would like to include in your report.

Insights and Goals

The items with the star icon are goals, and the rest are insights. There is not a limit to the number of items you can add to a report. 

You can keep track of the total number of items added to your report under the Items in Report column on the right side of the screen.

Once you're done, select continue to view your report!

  • Overall %: this totals all of your insights and goals added to the report and calculates the % that are passing (insights) or projected to surpass your goal value.
  •  Insights %: this totals all of your insights added to the report and calculates the % that are passing. 
  •  Goal %: this totals all of your goals added to the report and calculates the % that is projected to surpass your goal value
