Viewing a Report
Select View a Report under the Report Tool menu to see a list of available reports. Since the visibility of a report can be set to specific roles, not everyone will be able to see all reports. Only reports with visibility set to “All Members” will be viewable by all members.
Figure 1. List of available reports from the View a Report tab.
Click on the title of a report from the list to view a summary. From the summary page, you will be able to navigate through the different sections and items of the report in order to review the data that has been collected.
Figure 2. Summary page of a specific report within the Report List.
Within each report is a Print Version option, located near the bottom left corner. Clicking this tab will open a version of the report formatted for printing. To close the report, simply click the Close Report button.
Editing or Deleting a Report
From the View a Report list, click the Edit button for the report you wish to edit. Only the original creator of a report will have editing rights. Once you have made the desired changes, click the Save button to save the edits and return to the Report List.
If you are editing a legacy report from the beta version of the Report Tool, it will be updated to the current version when you save it.
To delete a report you created, click the Delete button and confirm. Only the original creator can delete a report.
