Reports are valuable tools for content editors, website owners, marketers and merchandisers, to monitor various website activities. Episerver comes with a set of built-in reports, and you can develop customized reports for your website.

Reports for CMS content

Reports for websites are used, for instance, to locate broken links and expired pages, or to get an overview of simple addresses used on the website. Reports are available from the Reports option in the Episerver CMS global menu.

When generating a report, you select the desired report and the starting point in the page tree from where you want the report to include data, then click Show Report. Data can be filtered by time and language, and pages included in the report results open in edit view when you click on a page link.

These sample reports are available for Episerver CMS:

Report Description
Not published pages Not published pages displays unpublished pages that have a change date within a certain time span.
Published pages Published pages displays pages that have a publish date within a certain time span.
Changed pages Changed pages displays pages that have a change date within a certain time span.
Expired pages Expired pages displays pages with stop publish date within a certain time span.
Simple addresses Simple addresses displays pages with a simple address.
Link status Link status displays links that could not be contacted in the link check scheduled job.

Some reports rely on scheduled jobs running in the background for generating report data. Refer to Scheduled jobs in the CMS Administration section for more information.

Reports in Commerce

Reports in Episerver Commerce are used, for instance, to follow-up on sales performance, or to monitor inventory stock information for products. Refer to Reporting in the Commerce section for more information, if you have a website with Commerce installed.
