Table of Contents
The reports section brings together reports from different areas: support, time management and projects. It also incorporates a custom report creator using SQL queries and a report scheduler to be able to plan report creation and delivery automatically from time to time.
It is the most comprehensive and general report. With more than thirty different filters, it allows you to create highly detailed reports that allow you to display dozens of PDF graphs, summaries, lists and parameters in a single PDF report. You may use it to make reports by customers, by customer groups, by status, and so on. You may also use a custom ticket search as the source of the report, to further expand the search filter.

Detailed ticket report

From general data (the problem, title, people who intervene in it, custom fields, criticality, ticket age) as well as all the history of the ticket and its notes, history of activity, history of the SLA and its general metrics.
It is a technical report that shows a list of closed tickets aimed at finding out the impact it had on time, “dead breaks”, people involved and its resolution (including customer feedback).
Report by ticket type
It is a report in list format that groups tickets by company (that creates the ticket), number of tickets by type in a given time interval. It supports different filters.
Specific report to control the quality of the support offered, showing metrics for each operator such as time spent, average time to resolve tickets, positive customer feedback and total tickets (filtered by company and time frame).

With the report manager you may create templates and a schedule for the generation of reports to be sent by e-mail or stored in the system's report library so that they can be checked later.
