The following questions help you to determine which custom report type will fit your needs.
Data from multiple tables
Most reports are run across only one primary table; however, both Multi-Table reports and Listing reports with Join conditions enable you to collect data across multiple tables. For more information, see Multi-Table Reports and Including Data from Related Items.
Show particular changes made to an item such as changes to particular field
Change History reports give details as to who performed changes to an item and what changes were performed. For example, you would use a Change History report to find all of the changes made by a particular user. You would set the User Making Change to the user name in the Search Filter options. For details, see Change History Reports.
Show items that have been deleted
Deleted Items reports enable you to see which items have been deleted. These items no longer appear in other types of reports since they are neither active nor inactive. For details, see Deleted Items Reports.
Source control information with a connector such as SourceBridge
Use the Version Control Actions Report to create reports on data stored in the VCACTIONS table by your version control plug-in. For details, see Version Control Actions Reports.
