Central place to run reports live or async
The new menu "Report Center" is the central place to host your reports in one place. From here, there are 2 ways to launch the report,
- Run Now - run report immediately as per normal.
- Run Background - put the report execution to queue job.
By using the queue job, option 2 is great for long running report. The report file will be saved for later use, with the option to send report by email as soon as it is ready.
- Only user with Technical Feature rights can manage the report.
- Every internal user will have right to execute the report allowed for his/her groups.
- The files created are owned and viewable only by the person who run the report.
- Job queue manager can also see all jobs for each reports.
