For our customers there are different versions of Community BI available.  What you have as a user is dependant on what your organization has selected to use.

In your Community Data Solutions CRM Database by default Community BI – Light is available to all customers.  

Community BI – Dedicated

For help on the Community BI dedicated version, go to the Community BI Knowledge Base


Step 1. Log into your CRM database (refer to Logging On for further information).

Step 2. At the top left of your screen Click on Dashboard then click on Community BI Reports

If you don't have the role (permission) listed for the report, you won't be able to view the report.  
Talk to your database manager about getting the role (permission) you need to view a report.

Managers will see all reports and can edit as needed.

Step 3.   The CommunityBI Report page is displayed listing any reports/dashboards.

The “Report Purpose” column displays more information about the report

Your organisation may have arranged to have different CommunityBI Reports available.

Step 4. To edit the Report Purpose for a report

On the right side of the report listing
Click on the pen icon to edit the report you want to add/change Report Purpose

Step 5. You will now be in the edit screen for that report

In the “Report Purpose” field
Type in a purpose for the report.

This would be something that gives the user a better understanding of what information the report has and how it displays it.

Step 6.   You need to save the changes you made

Click the green Save button

If at any time before saving you want to abort, click on Cancel.
