In viewing a report in WebTrends, I am limited to one dimension if I try to write a query. When looking at the Countries report, I see the geographical data I want, but I also want to look at what OS/Platform's are by country. Is there no way to add more Dimensions & Measures? Currently it auto-populates with only Visits showing. I don't see an intuitive way to do this query with the way things currently look in this report. Do I have to create another report?

I will let you know. I did find out that to create custom reports you have to have some level of administrative privileges, but it's more than just the Report Creation option, which appears to just let you pick which dashboards go in views, and which reports. Including data from dimensions not in reports already, looks to require something different. – Dallas Jan 19 '12 at 14:41
As I found out, we currently have the Standard version, which doesn't include Custom Reports. Hopefully when we upgrade, we go to the Advanced version. Most of what is needed for basic analysis is in the preconfigured "Complete View", but if you want to start looking two dimensions together (like iPhone visitors by country) you need that ability to create Custom Reports. – Dallas Jan 20 '12 at 22:28
You should be able to add (and accept) that answer for your question - definitely good information for other WebTrends users. – danlefree Jan 21 '12 at 0:52

You need to have the Advanced Analysis version to do custom reports. In addition you need to have the administrator enable the privileges for you to do it. If you have the proper permissions checked (Custom Reports in Advanced), you should see the menu options below. If you have the Standard Analysis version, you will see the Report Configuration options but not the Custom Reports.
