1.  Throw out results of first trade
The first trade shown on backtesting results doesn't always have the proper criteria to enter the trade.  I might be wrong about this but this is what it visually appears to be when I backtest most strategies.
That being said, if you listen to people like Curtis Faith in "Way of the Turtle" and other sources, they always recommend throwing out the first trade results from your analysis.
Would be nice to have a switch allowing your backing results to show this.
2.  Run standard report versus customized Strategy Report
There are only a handful of initial metrics I like to look at when first trying to validate a system (signal).  It would be nice to be able to create different reporting settings for both Strategy and Portfolio backtesting results to see in one clean one pager the key criteria before looking any further into the results.  It would be ideal to be able to select what those criteria are.
3.  It would also be nice to be able to "program" or calculate other metrics that may not be included as standard in the reports as well.
