Custom reports are super easy to build, you just tick the boxes for the fields you want to see, give the report a name and save it.
You can then access the report you just created anytime you need to and simply change the date range to suit.
There's no limit: you can build as many as you need.
If you turn on the Job ID field, you'll be able to click on the ID and open jobs directly from the report.
