How to Create a Report

The reporting feature in TrustLayer allows you to create and save reports based on the Filter options available within the Parties section of the platform. These reports are useful in tracking ongoing compliance, progress, etc. It is also a good way to provide details to other key stakeholders at your organization.

Creating a Report 

1 Using the sidebar menu located on the left side of the screen, click Parties.



2 Click the Filter button.



3 Then, choose from the filtering options provided. By clicking on a filter option, a dropdown with either check boxes or text boxes appears to enter additional data based on the option selected.

NOTE: You can add as many filters as you would like to achieve the desired results. This can be used to view data in the platform, or export to Excel.



4 All selected filter option(s) will appear towards the top left of the page under Active Parties. This is a good way to check yourself before exporting the report or reviewing the information. You can also see the number of selected filters on the filter button.
