Drop Down Box - Analytics Tab

In the PMF Analytics tab, there is a drop down box at the top of the screen that is titled "Type:", and contains a list including Analysis Reports, Saved Reports, etc.

Is there any way to add additional choices to that drop-down box? I would consider customizing that list if it is possible and not overly cumbersome.

Thanks in advance.

You can delete categories fairly easily - the items come from the file en_launch_page_types.csv (where en is the language you're using) in the pmflang app folder. To hide a category, you can just delete it. Keep a backup of the file handy in case you ever want to put it back, and another backup of the changed file, because it's going to get overwritten when you upgrade PMF.

Likewise renaming the existing categories would be the same, long as you keep their one-letter codes the same. The Content form however won't respect that change.

Regarding adding new categories; the drop-down box is related to the categories for the items in Content on the Manage tab. When you click a Content object, you'll note that there is a group of 10 categories into which you can categorize the content. The categories correspond to these. If you were to add new ones, there would be no way to categorize content into these categories without changing things in a lot of places. So yea, it might be a bit cumbersome to add them.
