Temporary Workaround for "No Data Found" in Custom Reports

  • 1.  Temporary Workaround for "No Data Found" in Custom Reports

    Posted Feb 20, 2024 12:43 PM

    Hello All,

    We have reported to our developers the "No Data Found" error that Jessica and Nancy have recently brought to the community after trying to create custom reports using the Build Report "wizard" on the Data Dashboard. Currently I suspect a new issue with the program selection filter, but we're waiting for confirmation.

    Until that issue is fixed, I recommend in Step 3 that you only use the Select Date filters - for Programs or Response dates - and not use the Select Program filter (see image below). If anyone finds that they still get the "No Data Found" error with this workaround, please reply to this message to let us know.

    All the best,
