    2. If this is a report that is on a dashboard you will want to contact a RITE Tech. This will incur a Premium Service charge.

    4. Double click on it to open the properties. We will come back to update the "Displayed Properties" this but leave this tab open.

    4. Scroll down to the Columns section. 
    5. You will want to note the name in the Source column. These can be used to add columns in the Summary Report.
  4. Update Displayed Properties
    1. Navigate back to the tab that has the report summary from earlier.
    2. In the Displayed Properties box add a comma after the last entry.
    3. Now add one of the Source names you noted earlier.
      NOTE: These are case sensitive so they must match exactly.
    4. Repeat steps 2 & 3 until you have all the Source names you would like.
  5. Save the report and the next time your emailed report runs you should have the additional columns.
