Browse Reports


The Browse Reports function allows libraries to retrieve current and past reports without needing an emailed link.

Reports are organized within three sections:

  • Browse Scheduled Output - standard reports that are setup to run on specific days; includes Overdue Shelfists, statistics, etc.
  • Run Ad Hoc Reports - specialty reports that libraries can run and view current information
  • Wireless Reports - statistics for wifi usage
"How do I use the Report Browser?" is a link that opens this TWiki document within the Browse Reports tab.

The Browse Reports function is accessible from the Staff Client home screen. This opens the reports interface in a new Chrome tab.
