Report format

This section allows you to choose the media format of your completed report. To select a media format, select it from the drop-down list:

The following formats are available:



  • The web format is the default interface for all report types. The results are displayed in a new browser window which contains a combination of HTML, CSS and JavaScript content.

  • To navigate through a report consisting of multiple pages, click on the , , or  icons at the top-right corner of the screen.

  • Universally-accessible, the web format provides a mixture of graphical charts and tabular data, whose column headers are click-able to allow dynamic sorting of results.


  • The PDF format guarantees an identical look across all operating systems, making it an ideal report format for printing out on paper, or for e-mailing to colleagues inside and outside of your organisation.
  • Due to the static nature of the PDF format, dynamic sorting of column headers is not available, although results can be pre-sorted using the filters and options available during report creation.


The Excel format is useful for onward manipulation of the data contained in your reports, or for including results in popular spreadsheet packages.


The CSV format allows report results to be arranged in comma-separated lists of data.

CSV files are often used for transferring data between different applications, such as databases, spreadsheets, and other third-party programs.

The XML format can be useful when transferring the structured data from your report results to third-party applications, such as billing, accounting and time management applications.

Run or schedule the report

This is the final screen of the report wizard. Click on the Run now button to run the report immediately, or select the Schedule for later button to schedule the report to run at a later time. To revise the report parameters you have entered, click on the Back button, which will lead you to the previous report options.
