Hello Doug,

Thanks for submitting this idea, don't forget to vote for it! Could you provide an example of a small polygon you would like to create this report from?

Thanks,

Scott

Hello Scott,

I would be interested in this as well. There are multiple reasons to do so. One is if your site borders on an area you do not want to be included in the summary. Such as an area that borders a river where the opposite side is composed of dramatically different businesses.

 

We are also interested in pulling more generic versions of these reports that we can reuse for a period of time. Using known geographies would be helpful.

Hello Aaron,

Thank you for sharing your thoughts on this idea! Could you give any examples of a workflow you would accomplish if this idea were implemented? What kinds of geographies are you looking to use for reports? How are you currently completing your tasks related to this request?

Thanks,

Scott

Scott,

Thank you for the reply. One example would be creating a Bussiness Locator Report based on a category of business within a specific neighborhood.

I recommend to check out the new Nearby capability in the Business Analyst Web App that helps summarize businesses for any point sites or polygon areas both in Reports and Infographics. This should address some of the needs described in this idea. 

More information on how to use the Nearby capability is here:

Please feel free to provide your feedback on the new Nearby capability.

Thank you,
