he Joy of Reporting in Tigersheet- An Interactive Video Guide to Keep Your Work Sorted!
Visualization and Reporting are one of the most vital motivation users want to go through all this trouble building an application and pour all their data into it. You can have numbers for each day and each month, and still, with all this detail, you can’t see the forest for the trees.
You might have a faint idea as to what product sells well and what does not, or which ad campaign seems to work better but it’s always until you have a chart produced, or a ranking report generated, that you get the clear idea of what’s going on for your business.
Creating reports from data stored is generally a tedious and labor-intensive job. The good news is that with Tigersheet in place, you don’t have to worry about this!

- Configure your timeline by choosing a Start and End date.
