You can edit your report results once they load.
The object type is what you can report on. You can get a report of your sites, your site columns, etc.
Tip: To report on MySites, use the OneDrive for Business object type. To report on Libraries, use the List object type with a List template filter on Document Library.
Filters are used to pinpoint specific objects of the object type you are reporting on. For example, you can find your site collections using a Team Site template with a Site template filter.
You can add new filters with the icon or remove unwanted filters with the icon.
Note: When you add multiple filters, the condition between each filter is AND. For instance, if you create a report on the List object type and add two different List template filters (as shown in the image below), the report will return no results because a list cannot be a document library and a calendar.
With columns you can add more information about your objects in your report.
You can add any of the fields from the All columns section to the Selected columns section to get these fields in your report.
You can add new columns by selecting them in the All columns section and clicking the icon or remove unwanted columns by selecting them in the Selected columns section and clicking the icon.
Tip: You can get more specific results by adding columns to your report and exporting the results to Excel. With Excel's own filtering capability and formulas you have more flexibility to find the information you are looking for.
Note: Default columns are grayed out and cannot be removed.
