  • Yes it is possible you can join entities (via Link-Entity). CRM 2011 reporting uses FetchXml (in case of on-premise and online) or Filtered Views (in case of on-premise oinly) and you can join in fetchxml and as well as FIltered Views, Fetch Xml example:

    <fetch version='1.0' output-format='xml-platform' mapping='logical' distinct='true'>
    <entity name='team'>
    <attribute name='name' />
    <attribute name='businessunitid' />
    <attribute name='teamid' />
    <order attribute='name' descending='false' />
    <link-entity name='teammembership' from='teamid' to='teamid' visible='false' intersect='true'>
    <link-entity name='systemuser' from='systemuserid' to='systemuserid' alias='user'>
    <filter type='and'>
    <condition attribute='systemuserid' operator='eq' value='{0}' />
