There are 2 methods to create new reports:

A. Duplicate Existing reports (leverages existing criteria):

  1. Find a similar report to the one you want to build

  2. Click the 3 dots next to the report

  3. Choose to duplicate within the workspace (Duplicate Report) or to a different one (Duplicate To...)

B. Start from scratch:

  1. Go to new reports

  2. Select between top performing and comparative analysis

    3. Less dependent on naming conventions
