How to create and remove a report filter

Cloudpermit Reporting provides automatic assessment reporting (currently Ontario only) and customizable data exports for permits, inspections, and reviews. The available data allows users to create reports for departments' internal use, councils, and external instances. 

The data helps municipalities report the number of issued permits and permit types and provides a view of current open permits and in-progress applications. Processing times, review times, and inspection time reports reveal the organization's performance and are a helpful tool in process improvement for the management.
