Use Simple Grouping by Value

You can group the information in the report by unique values in the column(s).

Use Grouping by Value at Multiple Levels

You can group records based on several columns (e.g., per opportunity status and the business customer name).

Now, you can see the calculated budget metrics (total, average, min, and max) for all the opportunities with the same status that belong to a specific customer.

Hint

Once a report is generated, you can click the name of a column to sort all the data in the report by the specified field value (ascending or descending).

Here is an example of the report ordered by the Name column:

As you can see in the outlined area, there are opportunities which are won, lost and requires analysis for Albers Super Markets. You can view the budget details for the all those groups.

Note

If the customer’s name is the most important part of the grouping, it might be reasonable to edit the report and move the column to make it first.

Use Charts

Let us make a chart for the budget per opportunity status report (not grouped by customers).

Configuration:
