A report shortcut rule provides information about a report (for example, the report's description and the category it appears in) to display in the Report Browser. Click a shortcut rule to run its related report and display the report results in the Report Viewer.
Shortcut rules establish shareable links to personal reports that managers have created. The links let other managers using the Report Browser access the reports. Multiple shortcuts can link to the same report.
To see the shortcut rules available to your current application, select > Reporting > Report Components > ShortCuts.
Category rules provide categories in the Report Browser, to help organize reports.
To see the category rules available to your current application, select > Reporting > Report Components > Categories. To see all category rules in your system, use the Records Explorer.
Display in report browser - (an optional feild in reports under report viewer tab). Select to have a shortcut to this report created and display in the Report Browser. When this check box is checked, a field appears where you specify the Category in which the report shortcut should appear in the Report Browser.
This check box operates as a one-way control: If the check box is checked and a category is selected when you save the rule, the system creates a shortcut for the report in that category, if one does not already exist. If you later uncheck the check box and save the rule again, the system does not remove the report's shortcut in the Report Browser. If you change the category selection and save the rule, the system creates a shortcut for the report in the newly-selected category, without removing the shortcut from the previously-selected category. To remove a report shortcut from the Report Browser, open the Report Browser, right-click the report shortcut, and click the Delete button.
