I mean, not only one salary, but also that how many people are working in the organization? There you go. Not only that, I also want the average salary, average salary per employee per division. Maybe that gives a hint that which division Should I target for?

So once I get the answers, I'm going to quickly format this data. And once I do so, this is your report talking about total salary, average salary per employee, and the count of people working in each division. Now, I may want that the theme numbers which you get to see may be presented in percentage form. So yes, within a few clicks, I go to an option which allows me to To show the percentage and there you go, if there are 100% people working with the organization, then 35% of them are working with already and I also have the facility to sorted based on the highest to lowest category which means the one which is heavily staff and the one which is sparsely staffed.

Not only that, I may wish to find out what has been the sequence of recruitment, what has been the trend for recruitment Timing as well as us DOJ date of joining group ID. And once I do so I choose months and years both and row, I get a report, which tells me you're wise month wise people who would perhaps be joining this organization or only that I can prepare a report which may exhibit itself like this. So you're wise month wise a proper trend.

Not only that, I will also want to see how has January been in terms of recruitment for different years. And if somebody likes this particular report, of course, he would want to see this report being generated for each of his departments.
