Reports are one of the most powerful features of this application. Powerful configuration tools allow users to meet their particular business needs and schedules. Using the automatic delivery feature reports will be dispatched via email to your designated list of recipients.
Reports are highly configurable, and one report can be created to form to fulfill many different needs. Some reports allow for multiple machines to be included in the same report, while others will require that you select a single machine. Simply select the report you’d like to generate and follow the step-by-step report generation process, selecting desired parameters as you go.
The first time you come to this page, you will have one table displayed: New Reports. This table shows the reports available for you to use. There are four columns:
- Action: By clicking on the icon in the action column a report can be configured. Read below to learn more about the steps to configuring a report.
- Application: This column indicates the application home for the report. Under the main heading of reports, all of the reports available are displayed and can be sorted using the application column.
- Report Name: This is the system name for the report. Once you create and save your own version of a report, you can give it your own name.
- Description: Because the reports are configurable, a general description is provided to guide the user to the desired report.
After generating a report, it is possible to view it in your browser, save it as a PDF, share it via email, or save it to the system.
To email a report, select the E-mail Report box and fill in the input fields, then hit the Email button underneath. Your email will be sent immediately.
