Viewing, Creating, and Editing MessageStats Reports

Introducing MessageStats Reports

MessageStats has a separate web-based reporting component called MessageStats Reports. MessageStats Reports provide a collection of configured (stock) reports that allow report consumers to view data across an organization.

You can change report parameters using the standard report filters, and additionally, the Quick Filters. You can also create customized reports, using the Web Report Wizard, based on any data source available in your MessageStats database.

This section provides information about how to use the MessageStats Reports. It explains how to create custom reports and graphs, how to export reports and graphs, and how to set up automatic subscriptions to post reports or email them on a regular schedule.

MessageStats Reports include the following features:

Using the console, you can perform the following tasks:

Select Start | Programs | Quest | MessageStats | Quest MessageStats Reports.
Click the MessageStats Reports node in the treeview of the MessageStats Console.

Types of Reports

MessageStats Reports hosts two types of reports:

Stock reports are specific to MessageStats, and are delivered with the product. For information about stock reports, see About MessageStats Reports .

Subscriptions allow you to generate reports on a regular schedule. You can set up email notifications that either link to the reports or include attachments that contain actual report data. For information, see Configuring Report Subscriptions .

You can create custom reports using the Web Report Wizard. You can build your own reports based on existing data sources. You can select fields, filters, format, grouping, and sorting options. Custom reports can be edited, depending on your security permissions within MessageStats Reports.

For information about the Web Report Wizard, see Creating Custom Reports .
