The documentation is very lacking on reports... I have created a sample report just to test the water, but it doesnt seem to be showing up in the admin system. I have also tried

SS_Report::register("ReportAdmin", "BookingReport_BookingSummary");

but get a error that SS_Report is undefined?

* This report lists all the pages in the CMS
* of type Page. Sorted by title.
class BookingReport_BookingSummary extends SideReport {
public function title() {
// this is the title of the report
return "Booking Summary Report";

// public function records() {
// // the data the report returns all the dataobjects of type Page and sorted by title. See datamodel for more info
// return Bookings::get()->sort("Created ASC");
// }

function records($params, $sort, $limit){
$Bookings = DataObject::get("Bookings", "BookingStatusID = '" . $params['BookingStatusID'] ."'", "Created DESC", Null, $params['ResultsLimit']);
return $Bookings;

public function fieldsToShow() {
// fields you want to display. This will display a list of titles which link to the page in the cms. Handy!
return array(


function parameterFields() {
$params = new FieldSet();
//Colour filter
$params->push(new DropdownField(
"Booking Status",
'1' => 'Not Paid',
'2' => 'Cancelled',
'3'=> 'Paid',
'NULL' => 'All'

//Result Limit
$ResultLimitOptions = array(
50 => '50 Bookings',
100 => '100 Bookings',
200 => '200 Bookings',
500 => '500 Bookings',
Null => 'All Bookings'

$params->push(new DropdownField(
"Limit results to",

return $params;

You don't need to register reports in SS3, they are registered automatically. Comment out the following:

SS_Report::register("ReportAdmin", "BookingReport_BookingSummary");

Also, you need to do a dev build for it to show.
