Custom metric reporting

when adding a custom metric to a button click, will it immediately appear in the reports you export from the studio or do you need to deploy it first? I added a custom field metric to a submit button on a form, but cant see it in the report yet.

Welcome Mike!

What are you referring to when you say custom metric? Is it the log custom event or is it a reporting metric (i.e. reporting metric > Count)?

I am looking at at both reporting metric > field and reporting metric > count in this use case. I want to log a new metric on a successful form submission

So when adding a reporting metric you would need to publish and deploy your application in order to have those metrics to be logged.
