    Description

      In order enable/disable live editiing in custom reports, we need to add the customreportsliveediting config setting (enabled by default).

      To give context to this issue - this was requested by a Moodle partner for a large client, creating computationally expensive reports - we can mitigate this by disabling the "live editing" of reports, meaning we don't show actual report data unless the user explicitly views/previews the report
