Hi All,

Is it possible to create a report with filter based on a custom field? I mean, not by creating a report from scratch , but to use existing reporting module and just by creating a new filter. I have added a custom field to customers and i want to make a report that lists all customers based on that field. 

Thanks a lot in advance.

Sansal Birbas,

If you want just summary of customer based on that field than you create your own dashboard.

Go to advance search and search your custom field to filter your records, once you get your filtered data than create dashboard for that filter so you can always have those information auto filtered with that field.

Hope this will help.

Well, its ok. Thanks a lot. Now I have a report that lists all customers according to my custom field. But my custom field is of type selection and i see numbers of selection items as headers of report columns. How can I show the headers as selection items?

I changed the keys of my selection type field and then loaded all customers again . That solved my task.
