NEW: Some new reports added to Standard Reports

I've been busy working with several subscribers on some new reports. The new reports are numbers 18.1, 19.1. 20.1, 25.2, and 25.3.

In addition, we've reworked reports 18, 19, and 20 to be more consistent with the rest of the reports on the site.

Reports 18.1, 19.1, and 20.1 are sorted numerically by the Grade/Level field, so if you use grades/levels that are number based (without any letter characters) then you may want to check out these reports. Since we store the grade/level as a text value, sometimes the sorting is not what you would expect if you are using numerical grades/levels.

Reports 25. through 26. used to require that we run a backend process on the database server to populate the data in the report. Now you can populate the data in the report simply by updating the results table for the pay plan. This will automatically populate these "department" reports. The new reports 25.2 and 25.3 are formatted for annual salaries rather than hourly wages.

The list of reports continues to grow and we've been thinking of some new user-interface ideas for making the reports more accessible. Some of these ideas we've discussed in past user group meetings, some of the ideas we have are new. In any event, we will be working on updating the report user-interface after we finish the "My Jobs" table revisions and the "Search Surveys" revisions.

There's lots to do as always!
