Report center is a one-stop destination to share, run, view and edits all your reports, regardless of the data source. In Q3 2017, Report center is made generally available to all customers. One can think of it as a single reporting solution used by all customers. This simplifies the usage of the SAP SuccessFactors reporting tools. It is a new way to navigate and access Reporting, Workforce Analytics and Workforce Planning applications (Section 9 – Table 2).
It syncs up with ALL reports in the Online Report folder, which means by default it shows all the reports unless permission otherwise. Please be mindful while deleting or editing reports from Report Center (view Section 6.2 for details).

6. Reporting Center’s important Features
6.1 Label As – Cool Feature
In Report Center, reports are organized based on labels and not folders, unlike previous in older versions. These labels are analogous to tags and a report can have multiple labels and can be filtered seamlessly.
You can manage these labels accordingly.
