When you first create a Datastore, there will be one report available by default: the "Detailed Report." The detailed report is designed to be the final report a user might see when looking at a single record. It will likely include all of the major elements of the record.
In our presentation Datastore example from the other help pages, the detailed report would include the presenter name, presentation title, abstract, link to directory profile, and all of the other fields.
This is what the detailed report looks like for one of the records in our example. Getting to the detailed report requires a couple of other reports. Let's start with our "themed" report.
We select "Presentation Theme" from the "Category Details" dropdown. This tells the Datastore that this will be a category report based on that one field. We also sort on the same field, and it is the only field we check off to show up on the report.
After we deploy the Datastore asset to a page, we end up with a display of this category report that looks like the screen capture above.
Since we have our "theme" report, we now need a secondary report to display the presentation titles after a theme is selected. This requires the creation of a report, and going back to the field to make the connection to that report.
This report is *not* a category report and will show the presentation title and presenter name. Remember, the presenter name is our "key question," so it will automatically link to the detailed report of the record.
Now we must go back to our fields, select "Presentation Theme" and edit the "Categorize" option so that it points to our new, presentation list report!
When we click on one of our themes, we see a list of presentations categorized by that theme. Since we included the presenter's name, our key question, it is linked and will take us to our detailed report view that was pictured above.
