How to Build Custom Reports in MPulse

CMMS reports provide the insight you need to accurately assess how your department is functioning—and where you can make changes. Custom report tools and software give you easy access to the numbers you need to make important decisions.

A custom project report can help you run your maintenance team, as well as measure and use key performance indicators (KPIs).

MPulse 9 comes with over 300 pre-configured text and graphical reports, so often you can find what you’re looking for easily. However, sometimes you need to build highly customized reports.

Here’s how to create and manage custom reports in MPulse.

Step 1: What Type of Report Do You Need?

MPulse makes it easy to build custom reports internally. Start by choosing Report Widgets from the main menu.

  1. In the top left corner, you can choose the type of report you need (financial, production, planning, etc.). That gives you a good starting point to build your custom report. You also can change the type of report in the Report Area field at the top right side.
  2. Add any custom information to the Description field.
  3. Check Add to Dashboard if you want the report to display on your personal dashboard.
