Ad Hoc Report Builder - How it Works

Ad Hoc Report Builder provides a flexible, intuitive platform for users to easily create custom reports and share them across the organization. Visual Publisher is an add-on tool that allows the report authors to use BIRT to create advanced graphical and query reports. Visual Publisher reports consist of four main parts:

  • Data – Extract information from your SuccessFactors instance using Report Builder.
  • Data Transforms – Data may be sorted, summarized, filtered and grouped to fit the user’s needs. BIRT allows sophisticated operations such as grouping on sums, percentages of overall totals and more.
  • Business Logic – Apply business-specific logic to convert raw data into information useful for reporting and decision-making.
  • Presentation – Once the data is ready, a wide variety of options are available for presenting it to the user including tables, charts, text and more.
