If you are making a copy of a predefined or custom report:

Replace the Report name with a name that will make it easy to identify the new report. (The default name is the name of the original report template, with a number appended to indicate that this is a copy.)
The name must be from 1 to 85 characters, and cannot duplicate another report name.
2.
Enter a Report title. This is the title that will appear on at the top of the page when the report is generated.
3.
Select a Report category. This determines how the report is grouped in the Report Catalog. The default is User-Defined Reports.

If you are creating a trend report, indicate the Time unit for the trend report's X-axis. You can create a report showing trends by day (default), week, month, or year.
*
To ensure that the data you want appears in a trend report, make sure the first day of the first week, month, or year that you want to include is set as the first date in the range. (By default, the first day of the week is Sunday, but this may vary based on your Microsoft SQL Server configuration and locale.)
*
For example, for a user's activity to be included in a monthly group trend report for August 2012, the user must be in the group as of July 31, 2012. A user joining the group on August 23, 2012 (a Wednesday) would be included in daily trend reports starting on the following day, in weekly trend reports starting the following Saturday, Sunday, or Monday (depending on your Microsoft SQL Server configuration), and in monthly trend reports starting September 01, 2012.
5.
Use the Internet activity per drop-down list to select the focal area of the report. You can show Internet activity per category (default), protocol, risk class, action (like permit or block), user, or group.
6.
Use the Measure by drop-down list to select how the focal area is measured. You can measure by requests (default), bandwidth, or browse time.
