This release provides brand new on-demand, on-screen reporting functionality within the Global Site Manager (GSM) console to allow super and limited admins to create and view reports instantly on-screen. There are 26 on-demand reports to choose from, and they can be tailored to display information from all sites or individual sites. These reports are designed to give admins fast and easy access to any key queries they may have on any deployment.
This new functionality will notaffect any existing scheduled reports that you may have set up previously. All existing reports will continue to run exactly as before.
