Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create an Ad Hoc Report of any domain (example: Performance Management, Employee Profile, Recruiting, etc.)
  2. Select the Columns from Column tab
  3. You are seeing the duplicates in the report for the selected columns


There can be multiple reason for duplicates in Adhoc such as missing (not including) a column that has unique value for the set of columns you have selected.


We have provided a feature called "Enable Distinct" to remove the duplicates in Adhoc report.

  1. Open Reporting
  2. Go to edit the report
  3. Go to Columns tab
  4. You will see a checkbox called "Enable Distinct". Once you check that and save the report, duplicates will be removed from the Report.
