Selecting multiple custom templates generates a single report that displays formatted data from all selected templates.
For more information about creating custom report templates, see Adding or Editing Custom Templates.

The Add Scheduled Report > Step 2: Targets screen appears.
Product Directory: Select the managed products or folders containing the managed products that provide the report information.
Tags and filters: Select up to 10 custom tags, filters, or important labels containing the users or endpoints that provide the report information.
The Tags and filters view is only available for custom report templates.
Reports generated by a user account only include data from endpoints that the user account is authorized to view. If a user account selects a tag, filter, or importance label containing endpoints that the user account does not have permission to view, then the generated report excludes data from the unauthorized endpoints.
Editing a tag, filter, or importance label on the User/Endpoint Directory screen also modifies the corresponding tag, filter, or importance label used by log queries and reports. For example, if the an endpoint is removed from a custom filter on the User/Endpoint Directory screen, then log queries and generated reports that use the filter will exclude data from the removed endpoint.
