Standard Reports are reports that generate a list of people and their corresponding details based on criteria you specify. They’re useful for pulling specific information within a group of people.
An example of how a standard report could be useful is if you wanted to generate a ‘birthdays’ report. You could create and then schedule a custom report that had a criteria set to ‘date of birth’ ‘is in the next two weeks’, and ensure no one was forgotten.
Reports Versus People Views
When you set up a report, the default is that you set up a report and a People View. People Views are the same as a report, except that you can Mass Manage anyone who appears in the report’s results. We recommend setting up a People View with any report that generates results you intend to move into a People Flow.
