We run CiviCRM 5.20.2 on Joomla 3.9.15

We use Reports - Donation Reports - Sybunt
We need to be able to select in the Columns area: • Nickname • Do not mail / contact • Deceased • Postal Greeting

Is a custom report necessary? If so how do I use the SYBUNT report as a template to copy?

Thank you!

I prefer to use hook_civicrm_alterReportVar(Instead of making copy of existing report and adding code) to add columns or filters to any report in $vars for $varType == 'Column'.

  • Do you have an example you could link to?
