1. Customization

2. Access

The next thing that you must make sure is that your ATS software has is access to share.  Making your reports shareable with the right people is essential, and as a result they can improve job performance and make meaningful improvements within their team or department.  Making sure that managers and the leaders within your company have access and can run their own reports will also make for more well rounded reporting.

Next is presentation.  Making sure that your reports are presentable, easy to follow and depict information in a pleasing, visual way will make them more enjoyable to read.  Data reports can be long, monotonous, and oftentimes boring, but if you have the option to make them more pleasing to the eye, data can actually be fun!  Also making sure that there’s an option to add a visual element will help make your report creating process more enjoyable and easy to follow.
