Reports and Analytics are important tools to run any business. To answer business questions sometimes means making a calculation on every row in a report. With the feature of row-level formulas in Salesforce Reports, you don’t need to export report data to a spreadsheet or ask an admin to create a one-off custom formula field. Instead, create a row-level formula field right while creating a report and use it as a regular column.


Write a row-level formula on a closed opportunity report to calculate how long each opportunity took to close. Click Add Row-Level Formula, and write a formula that subtracts created date from the close date.



The row-level formula appears as a column on the reports.

Features Available for Row-Level formula:

  • Filter and group report data by row-level formulas.
