Getting started with reports

In Comeet, some reports are available for the Lite subscription plan, while others are available for the Ultimate & Enterprise plans. The following roles can view all reports by default:

  • Owners

  • Admins

  • Managers

The rest of this article describes:

Navigate to reports

  2. From the Reports menu in the sidebar, select the report you’d like to view, or check out the report overview page to get a better understanding on which report answers your current question.

Report layouts

All of the reports available in Comeet leverage common formats and structures, making navigation familiar so you can easily review the data and analyze the insights relevant to you. Every report begins at the top with a birds’-eye view, drilling down to more and more detailed data as you scroll further through the sections of the report.

Depending on the report, some or all of the following components are included:

  • KPIs - a bird’s eye view; displays aggregated core metrics and KPI data, with the ability to compare the data with its parallel period, includes drill-downs for further analysis,

  • Trends - displays metric trends over time, with the ability to change the selected metrics and the time interval, whether you wish to view the data by months, weeks, days, etc.

  • Summary table- provides relevant aggregated data, with various categories to sort the data by, including the ability to transform the table to a chart display with a click of a button.

  • Details table - displays the most granular details, including the ability to add or remove columns according to your needs.

Filter and view relevant data

This section describes the common actions and filters available across most reports in Comeet, as follows:

Report filters

When the selected report loads, you can filter the data that is displayed throughout the entire report with the filters available at the top.

Overall, the filters appear similar to the following:

Most reports are time-based and default to the current month.

Each report can be filtered further, according to the data most relevant to you, and depending on the kind of report it is, meaning that not all filters are available for all reports.

Filters can include:

  • time period - notice that different reports can be based on different date types. e.g hire date, apply date, disposition date, etc.

  • department

  • location

  • position

  • lead recruiter

  • hiring manager

  • pool position

  • discreet position

  • position status

To include and exclude data, add filters or clear filters, click the relevant parameter and work with its values:

Bird’s eye view

View your most valuable metrics and KPIs in the top section of the report.

If the report is time-based, and not showing only the current status of events, you may notice an additional feature that enables you to compare the displayed data for the selected time period, with its parallel period.

Additionally, on most of these metrics, we placed the useful ”Expand” button, by clicking this button, another section of the report is displayed with the most glandular data related to the metric you clicked on. for example, when clicking on the button on the Hired candidates metric, a table is displayed with information about all the hired candidates that match your filters.

It's all about the trends

Changes over time can teach us a lot. with the new abilities of the trend charts, you may now explore your data in a convenient and insightful manner. the chart enables you to break down the data by various time intervals, meaning, now you can view the data over time by years, quarters, months, weeks or even days, all according to your needs and wishes.

In addition, you have the option of breaking the data by selected categories, including your very own custom position fields.

Moreover, you can download the chart as a PNG file. Notice, reports that are not time-based don’t have the trend chart as they display the current status of events.

Aggregate the data by your sought-after categories

Whether you wish to view the data based on the positions, departments, lead recruiters or even your own customized fields. By using the “customize” button on the top-right side of the table you can choose your own category and sub-category to break the data by. This feature allows you to run numerous types of analyses and view summarized data by your selected parameters

For example, you can view the number of pending tasks by the assigned teammate, or to switch it up and view it by the position, and by that understand how many pending tasks you have per position.

But that’s not all, you may combine two categories, and by that add another level of granularity. you may want to view the number of pending tasks per assigned teammate by position. and by that to understand the effort needed for each teammate under each position.

Furthermore, now you are also able to select and analyze the data by your own customized fields.

Take a deep dive into the most granular details

After taking a bird’s eye view, checking the trends and understanding the aggregated metrics its time for a deep dive. the next component is the descriptive table, and as its name, it shows the most descriptive data related to the topic of the report. For example, when viewing the “Hires overview” report, the descriptive table that you can find on this report will display the information about the hired candidates according to the set filters, it will show all the relevant data for the candidate hiring process. furthermore, using the “columns” button you can view the data most relevant to you by choosing to include and exclude columns. Lastly, you can download the data in its entirety as a CSV file.

Drill downs and continuous workflow

As noted above, with the new recruiting analytics reports you can view the most significant and common metrics per report topic but also dive deeply into much more detailed information.

The descriptive table that was mentioned is accessible via different methods.

  • Using the expand button on the KPI component.

  • Clicking on a specific value under on the summary table will open the descriptive table filtered to the selected categories.

  • Scrolling to the bottom of the report and filter according to your needs.

Additional improvement in this report suite is the ability to have a seamless workflow when looking for extra information during your workday.

  • Clicking on a candidate's name now opens their candidate card in a new tab.

  • Clicking on a position name now opens the position card in a new tab.

  • On related metrics, you may find a button that will redirect you to the relevant report that elaborates on the selected topic.

Visualization options

For the aggregated tabular component, you can also convert the display into a chart. This can be useful for a quick glance at your data overall.

To view data in charts:

  1. Navigate to the relevant report and scroll down to the aggregated table.

  2. Click on the “view as chart” button on the top right of the summary table

    The data reloads in chart format. For example:

  3. Hover over any point in the chart to view more details.

  4. You can also isolate only part of the chart data without changing the parameters selected. Hover over one of the parameters from the key that appears just below the chart. This highlights the specific parameter and greys out the others.

Export report data

For the tabular displays, you can export your data to CSV; for most chart displays, you can export the charts to images in .png format.

To export data:

  1. Navigate to the relevant report and scroll down to the relevant chart or table.

  2. Click the 3-dot menu and then select Download CSV or Download PNG. The file downloads to your local folder.
