Published Reports: What They Are and How to Use Them

This article explains that publishing a report is a simple way to save report filters and date parameters. This allows other users to run the report without having to configure the report setup.

Overview

Generating a report in Mazévo is a simple process, but running reports may be intimidating to the untrained or novice user. To help make reporting even easier for all users, Mazévo allows you to "publish" a report. 

Publishing a report saves the report setup information, including the date range and filtering criteria, and allows another user to click on the saved report to run it. 

For each published report, you can email a URL/link to a user.  The email recipient needs to have the Event Reporting Viewer security role.  The recipient can run the report at any time without logging into the system by just clicking on the link in the email. The report will be generated with the most up-to-date information when the link is pressed.

How to publish a report

1) Select the report to be published.

2) Set the date range for the report.

3) Set the filtering for the report.

4) Press Publish.

5) Enter a Report Description (or name) for the published report.

6) Indicate whether the report is Available To Other Users with report viewing access. Leaving the box unchecked will make the report private and only available to the user that published it.

7) Press Save.

Reports That Can Be Published

The following reports can be published in Mazévo:

  • Daily Operations Report
  • Event List
  • Rooms Cards
  • Service Order Form
  • Analytics
  • Revenue Analytics

Editing a Published Report

The owner of a published report can edit the settings of a previously published report by going to Reports > Published Reports and selecting Edit Report for the appropriate report to be edited. Then, after making the desired changes to the report setup information, press Save to update the report.

 

Security Considerations

There is a special security role, Event Reporting Viewer, that you must grant to a user to run published reports. This role is separate from the Event Reporting Publisher role, allowing a user to configure, run, and publish reports.
