Verified Reports and Dashboards

Reports & Dashboards

My company allows users to create reports.  We have found this to be a great practice in self service solutions.  However, we also find that sometimes recipients of those reports do not always believe the data being reported and sometimes the receipt is right to doubt because wrong fields, wrong values or wrong filters were added to the report.  This can cause doubt with the data stored in
My suggestion is to have “Verified” Reports and dashboards.
With Verified reports and dashboards a user can create a report and then submit that report to an Administrator or a designee, like a finance person (for financial reports).  The admin, or designee, will then review the report (or dashboard) for accuracy and either send the report back to the creator with suggestion for changes that are needed or confirm the report is correctly built and add the “Verified” status to the report (or dashboard).
With the “Verified” status the company can be assured that the report has been vetted by an authority and have faith that it is correct.
A report can lose “Verified” status with an update by a user (a warning message will appear as the “Verified” report is edited stating that it will lose “Verified” status) or the reports, once verified, can be stored in a restricted folder.
