Override Standard Report Types

Operational Reporting

Since the new custom report type functionality is so great, we tell everyone to just ignore the standard report types and only use the custom made ones. So why not allow us to REPLACE the standard report types with custom ones. Admins should be able to: 1. Override standard report types with custom report types, AND DELETE unwanted standard report types. 2. Create/Edit/Delete the Report Type folders. This would allow us to organize our report types better, and better communicate to our end users what report types they should be using.

    Hi all - while we see the value in this idea, overriding standard report types would require quite a bit of coordination and effort across entity owners and we have a number of other things on the roadmap that are higher priority. We'll mark this as "Not Planned' but keep it in mind as our roadmap evolves, especially around the area of report types, which should help with organizing of reports.
