Show report type when editing a report, and change monthly submittal report

by Phil Bustin on February 28, 2018

I often forget what type of built-in report I created--for instance, a monthly submittal report--what category is it?  I think that information should be visible somewhere when I edit a report.

Also, in a monthly submittal report, whatever category that is (see above statement), the column dates always have a day, even though the report always shows a count of all items submitted in the month.  When date/time phrases are used as parameters, the day displayed is always the current day that the report is run, or something close.  For instance, I ran a report 2/28, and the first date is Dec 31st of the previous year, then Jan 31, then Feb 28, and the rest are the 28th.  When I hard-code the beginning date as a parameter, say 1/1/2017, then all the days are the 1st.  Either I should be able to specify the day I want displayed, or, since the day is meaningless, the column dates should simply be month/year.  Possibly the last month, if it coincides with the current month, should display the current date to indicate an incomplete total.
