Administering a report
After you have created a report, you have several ways to administer it. Most of these options are available by clicking the More options button on the report.
- Share - Click the Add button ( )to share the report with others. You have the option to let users share the report with more people. You can also click the More options ()button and then click Share
- Export - Export all the data in the report as a CSV or JSON file. Exporting is only available for tabular reports and the All Items report. After exporting, you will receive an email with a link to download the report.You can export your report to a CSV, JSON, or a ZIP file for your process forms with a maximum of one table in their form data.Here are a couple of tips that we thought you must know while exporting reports:
- If the ZIP option is disabled, it means your report doesn’t have any tables in the process form so you will not be able to export the report as a ZIP file.
- If all the options are disabled, it means your report has more than one table in the process form so you will not be able to export the report at all. We currently do not support file export for form data with many tables.
- If the CSV option is disabled for your old reports, you can just open and close the report once so that its last modified time is updated to your current date after which you can try exporting it again.
- Edit - Change the data, arrangement, and filters applied to your report.
- Rename - Change the name of the report.
- Duplicate - Create a new report with the same structure. You can rename the new report or keep the default name Copy of <report name>.
- Delete - Delete the report entirely.
