Create a report range

Create a report range to define data intervals that are used in bar and pie charts.

  1. Navigate to Reports > Administration > Report Ranges.
  2. Select New.
  3. Fill in the form (see table):
    New report ranges form

    Use the following fields to refine the data displayed in the report and to design the appearance of your line chart:

    Table 1. Report range form fields
    Field Description
    Name The name of the table to draw the values from.
    Element The table field to draw the values from.
    Label The name for the report range that is displayed in reports.
    Value list For choice list elements, this field defines which values are within the range. After the range is saved, the value list is populated with the choices of the element.
    Color name The color to display this report range in. The color appears in the Display field. If you enter a color name, you do not need to enter a color value.
    Color The hexadecimal value for the color to report this report range in. The color appears in the Display field. If you enter a value for color, you do not need to enter a color name.
    Upper value int For integer-type elements, this field defines the upper limit of the range. The upper value of the report range with nearest lower Order defines the lower limit of htis range. If no range with a lower Order exists, the lower limit is zero.

    For example, if this report range has an upper limit of 10 and has an Order of 20, and the report range with the Order of 19 has an upper limit of 5, values from 5 to 10 will display the formatting specified by this range.

    Upper value duration For duration-type elements, this field defines the upper limit of the range. The upper value of the report range with nearest lower Order defines the lower limit of htis range. If no range with a lower Order exists, the lower limit is zero.

    For example, if this report range has an upper limit of 10 and has an Order of 20, and the report range with the Order of 19 has an upper limit of 5, values from 5 to 10 will display the formatting specified by this range.

    Display Read-only field that displays the color that is used for the specific report range.
    Order The order in which the report ranges are used. If a value is defined within more than one label, it is reported under the report range with the lowest order.
