Report Timezone

The Report Timezone field controls the date format for all date fields on the report. By default, all time values on a report are displayed in UTC. You can use this field to change the timezone of date columns on the report. Click the menu to reveal a list of time zones. Scroll / search through the list to find your desired time zone.

Merge report settings

The Add Report to Merge button lets you merge a report into the current report. You can merge any report that shares a common column with the current report.

Display Query Dropdowns

The Display Query Dropdowns toggle sets whether a variable-based dropdown appears when viewing a report that has a variable filter applied to it.

When creating a filter for a report, you can add a variable filter to the report. With a variable filter applied, you can dynamically search for data with data you provide while viewing the report.

In this screenshot, the variable filter is using the variable {{userId}}. This adds a query dropdown menu to the report (in the screenshot above, the userId menu). This particular report shows the number of interactions handled by a particular user. So, the {{userId}} menu is used to select a specific user to show their interaction handling data.

The Display Query Dropdown toggle determines whether the dropdown menu appears when viewing the report. This feature is useful when you want to temporarily restrict access to viewing data in a report.
