Using the Treeview

MessageStatsReports uses a treeview as its main navigational tool. The treeview contains folders that expand to reveal subfolders and reports.

When you select a folder from the treeview, descriptions and links to the reports in the folder are displayed in the right pane in a file-based format. If you expand the treeview, you can also select a report directly.

Folders are used to group the reports about different aspects of your Exchange environment and messaging traffic.

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.

Using the Listview
