How to generate a longer report
Generally, people like to see reports that can be customized to contain information that goes back as far as possible. Or, they want reports that contain everything that they need or can see (reports that contain months of information). Unfortunately, the reporting in the Activity Log or the Data Extract can seem short, but you can still generate plenty of information from these reports.
You may see this error message when trying to generate a report that's longer than 31 days:
Although the report itself can only contain 31 days of information, this reporting tool can go as far back as when any of your systems were installed, or policies were run. The only limitation is that it prints 31 days' worth of information. Luckily, multiple reports can be generated!
You may see this error in the Data Extract report when attempting to go longer than 90 days:
...unfortunately, with Data Extracts, we cannot go farther back than the 90-day limit.
