Reports list with column sorting and bulk deletion

The reports list has been simplified, by offering the right amount of information that is needed at this level. Instead of detailing the number of errors and warnings, we just show the total number of issues for each check.

Columns are sortable now, so with a click you can sort your reports by URL, number of web pages, number of HTML or accessibility issues, and creation date.

Reports can now be bulk-deleted. Instead of deleting reports one by one, you can check many and then click on the "Delete" button to remove them at once. Range selection is supported using the "shift" key.

Report summary includes more details and stats

The new reports summary view provides a high-level overview that lets you quickly understand the status of your checked site. While the previous summary report was just a horizontal colored bar, the new report summary includes:

  • Number of web pages found.
  • Total number of HTML issues found.
  • Total number of accessibility issues found.
  • Mutings applied, if any.
  • Time of the last check.

Also, for the HTML and accessibility checks, a progress gauge shows the percentage of pages that passed all the checks.

HTML checking is now optional.

Previously, the HTML check was always included, but now you can decide what checks to include on the reports: HTML and/or accessibility.

This lets you save credits on your account and work with a more focused checking scope when you need it.
