How do I add an image to a report?

Environment:

Images in Reports, Analytics
Oracle Service Cloud, All versions

Resolution:

When presenting a report, you may want the report to include images, such as a logo, to enhance the report’s appearance or to customize it for your audience.

You can add images you have uploaded in the Images explorer to header and footer sections of a report.  Images can act as backgrounds or header images in these sections. You can also use images as links to open URLs that you specify.

Use the information below to upload an image and add that image to the report.

Images Explorer

You can add or replace images in reports and dashboards using the Images Explorer.

Photos and other images can be uploaded to use in reports and dashboards. The ability to replace images is helpful when an image, such as a corporate logo, is modified. After the image file is replaced, the reports and dashboards with the old image automatically use the new image.

  1. Select Analytics from the navigation pane
  2. Double click the Images Explorer
  3. From the Home ribbon, select New to add a new image
  4. Click the 'Select one or more images' link
  5. This will allow you to search for the image(s) you want available for reports
  6. Once the image(s) is selected and displays, click Save or Save & Close
