Hi,

I have to study related to the Reporting Tools (such as Tableau Reporting tools).

I believe the activities of a reporting tool are:

-      Sorting
-      Grouping
-      Summaries

My question: I can imagine only the above 3 activities; would somebody mention other activities (if any) please

Thank you
