C4C Analytics - Is it must to have a view when creating custom report ?
I am not very clear on why always a view to a custom report is created ? Is it like report can not be run without a view or something ?
from conceptually, Report view is a variation to the report's data representation. I also understand that view can have key figures and Characteristics that are subset of the Report's key figure and characteristics and a view can have 1) a different chart representation than original report, 2) conditions and exceptions on the key figures.
However, after creating a report using Wizard, the next steps are always creating a view and assign.
I am not very clear on why we must create a view ? or for that matter - is it a must task ? I dont think so - but just wanted someone to confirm the same with some elaboration.
Thank you for your time.
