A calculation can be added to an Analytics Report to evaluate report data relative to a standard, run a calculation on the values in two or more report fields, count data records, or perform aggregate functions on report fields, such as adding values. Calculations are displayed as additional fields that are added to the report, and they can also be displayed graphically in the report using the Charting option.
There are two types of calculations that can be added to a report:
- Pre-Defined Calculation, which runs a function against a single Analytics Report field, or performs a calculation using two report fields.
- Simple Calculation, which uses a formula to arrive at a value using functions and operators and one of the fields in an Analytics Report.
You can also format a calculated field to control its display.
