A User Report is a customized report based on a smart filter. For example, create a monthly report showing orders that had additional freight applied after shipping (i.e., Using a smart filter where the "Service Type" is Freight only). You can select which columns to display and in which order, share the report with others, subscribe to the report, and download the report as an Excel or PDF file.
