Report builder is a visual editor for reports.The report builder screen lets you work with report fields and filters, and shows you a preview of your report with just some of the data.
Available in: both Salesforce Classic and Lightning Experience

To optimize screen real estate, report builder uses a compressed page header. To view your application tabs, simply close the builder or click the Salesforce logo.

The Fields pane displays fields from the selected report type, organized by folder. Find the fields you want using the Quick Find search box and field type filters, then drag them into the Preview pane to add them to the report.
Create, view, edit, and delete custom summary formulas and bucket fields in the Fields pane as well.
In the joined report format, the Fields pane displays fields from all report types added to the report, organized by report type.
Filters Pane (2)
Set the view, time frame, and custom filters to limit the data shown in the report.
Preview Pane (3)
