Report Option for Distinct/Unique Records

Reports & Dashboards

It would be great to have the option on custom reports to specify that the results should show only one instance of a record, even if that record appears multiple times within the report. For example, I would like a report that shows me all accounts that have at least one "Closed Won" opportunity, and even if the account has more than one Closed Won opportunity, the account name would show once. This will allow me to see how many unique accounts that I have that have purchased something. Another example would be for an Opportunities with Products report: The report would show a list of unique opportunities that have product x or product y attached. This concept is similar to the "SELECT DISTINCT" concept in SOQL.
