Combine columns from multiple reports together. Currently I am not able to add all required columns in the requested timesheet template. I would like to combine columns from two different reports (or other equal solution)

Hello Vojtech,

Reports in the application are structured in a way where each report is based on a primary dimension that reads from a certain data source. These dimensions correlate with other data elements that form the report. Data elements that do not have any correlation with the primary data source cannot be included in the same report.
For example, in a Timesheet report, the Timesheet data correlates with User, Project, Task etc. which is why all these elements/columns can be included in a single report. On the contrary, in a Project based report, the project data has no direct correlation with Time Off, which makes it infeasible to include time off and project allocation/estimation into the same report. Even if it is deemed to be technically feasible, doing a Join between two disparate data elements, would result in duplication of data/rows in the report, and would make the report data incomprehensible.

That said, if you would like, we could have someone from the Support team reach out to you to gather more information about specific constraints that you are facing with the Timesheet template, and we can analyze them to see if there are potential workarounds.

Thank you again for posting. 

Best regards,
Naveen
