    2. In the Description field, enter the report description.
    3. In the Category list, select the report category.
  10. Click Submit.
Result: The report opens in the Report Viewer, and a report shortcut becomes available in the selected category after you close the Report Viewer.
  • Creating report categories

    In the Report Browser, you can create report categories to help you organize reports. Each report belongs to one category, but you can have report shortcuts to the same report in more than one category.

  • Adding columns to reports

    Extend the report scope by including a property or a calculation in the report. For example, you can include a calculation that displays the difference in hours, days, or months between two dates of your choice.

  • Duplicating existing reports

    Safely modify report data without affecting the existing structure by duplicating the report. For example, you can use the data from the original report, but filter or organize the information differently.

  • Report Browser features

    In the Case Manager portal, the Report Browser is a tool that provides access to all of the reports that are available to you. To open the Report Browser, click Reports in the menu on the left side of the page.
