Report Settings

CommonSpot contributors can customize the number and type of items that display in their personal My CommonSpot dashboards, as well as set sort and display options for other frequently used dashboard options such as My Content and search results. Use Report Settings to establish defaults for these customizable displays, both to ensure that report results are meaningful and to prevent the system slowdowns that may occur when report criteria require a large number of lookups or produce a large number of results.

For example, displaying every page in a report run against a site with tens of thousands of pages is both unnecessarily resource-intensive and unproductive for individuals trying to locate specific pages or documents.

For sites with a large number of pages, uploaded documents, images, or contributors, this option provides logic to limit the number of items reported.

Use the Site Properties/Settings - Report Settings option to define the default maximums for specific contributor or administrator reports.
