Remote Reporting allows you to run reports remotely from the server. Remote Reports are very powerful because they allow users anywhere in the world, without buying any additional software, to generate their own reports. This also introduces a few security concerns which the Remote Reporting Security Manager addresses.
Pre-Defined Remote Reports
Pre-Defined Remote Reports, allows remote users to logon to the system with any web browser and select an existing report to run. They have no flexibility in how the report is defined.
Using the Remote Reports Security Manager, you can allow specific users to run specific reports using any web browser from anywhere in the world. Users simply go to the Remote Report log-in page (by default, /stats/login.htm), enter the user name/password you’vet assigned them, and HitList will display a list of the report that you’ve allowed them to run. Then they simply select the name of the report and click OK. Depending on how the report is defined, the resulting report can even be embalmed to the user.
