Reports are called Events in the admin site.
In order to be able to have Reports available on your site you will have to go through some configuration on the Admin side to be able to personalize your site.
Here you will find some examples of this configuration but reach out to an EarthRanger Support Contact in case you have any questions.
Are sub-groups where the event types are categorized and how they display on EarthRanger. For example if you are going to have Security Patrols, you can create a Event Category called "Security" where all of your reports that concern security can go here.
You can create the Event Categories previous to starting a new Event Type or do it directly in the Event Type section.
An event type is created to report specific events and keep track of the details of it. You can create as many Event Types as your organization needs.

Schema & Form Definition
To determine the fields that the Event Type will display when creating new Reports, they have to be added in the form of a Schema.
In this Form you will add the information that you will need for each Event Type.
This Schema is written in JSON to determine the format and the information. If requested, the Support Team can create the Schema for you.
Here is an example of how the Schema looks on Admin and how it would look as a Report in EarthRanger.
In order to be able to create Reports on EarthRanger you have to make sure your permissions are set correctly.
Each permission set allows the added users to have specific actions allowed within EarthRanger.
For Reports, we have a pre-made set of permissions based on the role the users will be using to which you can just add the users. Nevertheless you can create as granulated and specific permissions as needed.
Here are some examples of the default set of permissions for Events.
