Pages that include a list of items such as Deals, Leads, and MDF Requests are called "lister" pages in Channeltivity. Most of the listers in Channeltivity can be customized by adding, removing, and rearranging columns to create custom Reports/Views. Frequently used reports can be saved as well as exported to Excel so that you can easily access them in the future. You can also convert the data to tables, charts, and graphs for visual reporting.  This article explains how to do all of these things and more.
