Using Power Reporting, you can generate the following types of custom reports:
Interactive reports - Modify a pre-defined template to suit your needs, or create a report from scratch. These reports are useful mostly for generating lists.
Analysis reports - Modify a pre-defined template to suit your needs, or create a report from scratch. These reports are useful mostly for performing calculations with reporting data.
To generate a Power Report
How to get there
On the Home menu, under Reports, click (or tap) Power Reporting.
The Power Reporting page opens.
On the Power Reporting page, click (or tap) the icon that corresponds to the report that you want to generate.
Besides the system default reports, any saved reports (for only you and/or for all users in your organization) also appear in the list and as icons on the page. By default, the All Reports category is selected, so you can see all the available reports on the page.
To filter the available reports on the page by category, select one of the category tabs on the left: My Reports, to view reports that were created for only you; Organization Reports, to view reports that were created for all users in your organization; or any other category, such as Financial or Insurance, to view the corresponding system default reports. Also, in the Search box, you can begin typing the name of the report or the type of report that you are looking for to view only those reports that match your search criteria, and continue typing as needed to narrow the results.
The icons and corresponding descriptions for the report types appear in the following table.
Interactive - These are customizable reports that you create or modify using the interactive report builder.
Analysis - These are customizable reports that you create or modify using the analysis report builder.
The data from your database syncs with the reporting system automatically and displays the time of the last sync on the Data as of button. Data entered in Dentrix Ascend after the time shown will not be available on the report until the next sync. To view the time when the next sync is expected to occur, click (or tap) the Data as of button.
For an interactive or analysis report, to save the report template for later use, click (or tap) Save. In the Save Report dialog box that appears, type a name for the report, select whether you want to save the report as one of your reports (available only to you) or as an organization report (available to all users), and then click (or tap) OK.
Export a report in any of the following file formats:
.html (interactive only)
This sounds great but I do not have the custom reports page. Any suggestions?
This feature is currently in beta. You won't see this feature until it is made generally available. And, I don't know exactly when that will be, but it will be soon. Sorry.
Any news on how long before this is available? We've only been an ascend office for 2 weeks and I'm beginning to doubt our change since the ability to run alot of reports we depend on are not available.
I talked with the product manager, Adam McDaniel, and he said that the custom reporting tool is not ready for general release. You cannot currently save reports (so you have to re-create the report each time you want to run it), and the data set is too small (only a limited amount of data is currently searchable with the tool). He didn't provide a timeline for when the reporting tool would be ready either. Sorry. If you'd like to contact your account representative (Jenni Blaser?), they could probably get you in touch with Adam to discuss the issue.
Any update on this feature? This is a definite and immediate need. Thanks!
