Using the Treeview

MessageStats Reports use a treeview as the main navigational tool. The treeview contains folders that expand to reveal subfolders and reports.

When you select a folder from the treeview, the contents of the folder are displayed in the right pane in a file-based format. You can also select a report directly from the treeview.

The illustration to the left is an example of what the treeview may look like. Folders indicate a grouping of report information. Folders may contain subfolders or reports.

When you click on a report, the contents appear in the right pane.

Depending on your security role, you may not be able to see some of the branches of the treeview.
