Customize and Save Reports

Each report can be customized in various ways. Once a report is to your liking, you can name and save it for future use. The new report is then found in the left navigation under My Reports. Once saved, new data is displayed matching your customization.

Time format – Depending on the grouping of data (see Grouped by above), the displayed graph or chart can show data gathered MonthlyWeekly, or Daily. If this option is available it will be at the top right, under the Export as button.


Visual display format – If available with this report type, you can choose how the data will be visually represented. Clicking the desired option to see it as a bar chart, or to view it as a line graph. (See above image.)

Text search – Anything entered in the Search box below the graph will be matched against data in any of the available table columns (whether those columns are displayed or not).


Date range – Click the calendar iconcalendar.pngand select from the left side of the popup to view data from the Last 24 hours, Last 7 days, Last 30 days, Last 90 days, or Last 6 months. Or use the calendar displays in the popup to choose the start and end date of any period in the last 6 months. 

Top number – (Not available for all report types.) The Display dropdown is available for reports showing "Top" metrics. Limit the data in the chart by selecting Top 5, Top 10, or Top 15.

Edit columns displayed – Click the Edit columns button to select or deselect the columns to display in the table below. A flyout appears on the right side of the screen. Check or uncheck boxes to make your selections. Enter a column name in the search box to quickly find or limit column options.


Grouping table data – This is a powerful way to organize information in the data table. The light blue horizontal bar shows the current grouping. If no grouping is in effect, it will read "Drag a column header and drop it here to group by that column." 
To create grouping, click on the drag-lines.png icon over one of the table columns and drag it into the light blue bar. The table will then reorganize to fit the new grouping. 
In the example below, data is initially grouped by Confidence score, meaning all data is gathered and displayed for each threat level certainty. The first threat level is high and all email fitting that classification is displayed before moving on to another confidence level (regardless of any secondary groupings).

Sender email has been added for secondary grouping. Here all data is grouped first by Confidence score and within each of those they are then sub-grouped by Sender email. (This is why the sender email address appears in two places – confidence high and confidence moderate.)

You can add or delete groupings at will. To remove a grouping, simply click on the X on a grouping chip in the light blue bar.  Grouping can also be removed by clicking on the filter iconfilter-funnel-icon.png for a column and then clicking Ungroup... at the bottom of the filter window. (See Column filtering below.)


Column filtering – You can also add filtering to individual columns. Click on the filter iconfilter-funnel-icon.png to see and use filter options.


Saving a customized report – Once you have customized a report to show table and graph data to your liking, click the Save as button at top right. Then in the popup box, enter a name and click Save. Your new report can be found under My reports in the left side navigation. Clicking on the pin icon pin-icon.png will make that your default report and it will be displayed each time you return to Impersonation Protection Reports.
