Deprecation of Custom Reports to Begin in August 2022

The deprecation of Custom Reports is targeted to start with phase 1 occurring in the August ’22 Release. This target date gives customers time to prepare and to complete their migration to Reporting 2.0. In the meantime, Cornerstone will also continue to further enhance Reporting 2.0.

Our top priority is performance and stability. Cornerstone implemented several improvements during 2021 and will continue to monitor and make improvements during 2022.

  • Cornerstone will continue closing the remaining parity gaps between Reporting 2.0 and Custom Reports.

Customers who wish to migrate their custom reports to Reporting 2.0 ahead of the 2022 deprecation can do so by using the Custom Reports Migration Tool available in Reporting 2.0. See Reporting 2.0 - Custom Reports Migration Tool.

Permissions

Permissions in Reporting 2.0 are different than the permissions for Custom Reports. Custom Reports had a "Manage" permission for creating and editing reports and a "View" permission for viewing reports, whereas Reporting 2.0 permissions are more granular and users need to be given multiple permissions in order to create or view reports.

It is important to be aware of the differences between permissions in Reporting 2.0 and those in Custom Reports so that users have all necessary permissions to begin using Reporting 2.0.

For more information about Reporting 2.0 permissions, see the following:
