The Report

The Set of Options Report allows you to view and export a list of all values in a specific custom field, and can be used for any fields that are a "set of options" field type.

A common example for many associations is an Areas of Expertise (AOE) custom field, which is used in the online member directory as well as printed directories.

The main difference between this report and a custom report of the same field is that the Set of Options report will list each value on a separate row.

  • In the example below, Access Control, Inc. is listed on 3 separate rows because they have 3 values selected in the Areas of Expertise custom field on their record (Apartments, Schools, and Utilities).

View the Set of Options Report

  1. Go to the backend and click Reporting in the left sidebar.

  2. Then click on Set of Options.

  3. When the report opens, select the custom field from the Choose Custom Field for Report dropdown. Note: Only "set of options" fields will be available.

  4. The list will automatically populate all member records with a value (or values) in the selected custom field. If a member has more than one value they will be listed multiple times.
