Name: Name of the object.
Owner: The name of the user who created the object or another user who currently owns the object. For reports and documents, the owner is also listed on the Details page. The owner usually defines the permissions for how the object can be used and by whom.
Modified: The date and time the object was last modified.
Description: A description of the object, if the owner of the object provided one.
Actions:The icons of the actions that can be performed on the objects. Metrics, prompts,  and filters can only be edited. You can click the icon and choose to edit, subscribe, send, export or view the selected report or document.
