How can I create a report? 

There are several ways to create a report in Factorial. 

First of all, only the administrator can create reports, employees with a non-administrator role do not have access to this functionality. 

Create a custom report ✏️

Factorial will allow you to create reports to your liking, with the data you want to get the metrics you want. 

It's very simple! To create a custom graph, simply go to Reports > "+" > Create Custom Report. 


Once you have selected the option to create a custom chart, you will see that you have the following choices: 

  1. Give the chart a title
  2.  Select the type of report 
  3. Adding initial and secondary data
  4. Record the grouping value, if necessary
  5. Add a filter if required 

From here, you can add data to your report to shape it and create a chart that will be useful to you and allows you to plot data.

In the attached example, we have taken out a graph to find out which type of absence is most requested by the employees of the company DEMO. 

By selecting a pie chart. 

Adding in the initial data the value: Number of employees 

Adding in the secondary data the value: Type of absence

We see that Factorial provides us with a pie chart of the types of leave requested by employees till today. Also, it gives us a table in which we can see in more detail the types of absence and the number of employees who have requested it.
