To view a read-only employee work schedule report, complete the following steps:
TIP: The following instructions detail accessing the Employee Work Schedules ReportBuilder from directly within the Work Schedules feature. This report is also available in the AWARDS Reports module, where it can be bookmarked for easy access. For more information on using the Reports module, click here.
NOTE: In the event that you are creating a new report that will be saved, or if you will be using an existing report format that was saved previously, please be aware that the date range set here is not saved with reports. You must specify one each time the report is run.
NOTE: This option is used to provide access to an ExportBuilder corresponding to the ReportBuilder with which you are working. AWARDS ExportBuilders - which are designed for use by individuals who are familiar with export files and formats, their design, and setup - harness the power of ReportBuilder functionality and take it a step further to meet a variety of outside reporting needs. With ExportBuilders users can create customized data reports as they would would the ReportBuilder itself, and from those reports generate export files of a number of different types - CSV, TXT, XLS, or XML. Exported files can be saved to your computer, then uploaded into other data collection systems and/or worked with in other applications as needed. Additionally, as can be done with ReportBuilders, ExportBuilder formats can be saved and shared for future use.
The instructions provided in this portion of Online Help detail use the of the Work Schedules ReportBuilder only, not the corresponding ExportBuilder. For more information on using ExportBuilders, please refer to the corresponding portion of Online Help.
NOTE: When using this option the report will remain in your messages for one month, after which time it will be deleted. (The exact date of deletion will be displayed in red at the top of the report message for your reference.) If you know you will need the report content after that time, be sure to download the Excel file (Excel File.zip) or HTML content (Report Content.html) attached to the report message. If you don't download one of these attachments before the message is deleted, you will need to manually re-generate the report if you need access to it in the future.
Use a previously saved report format - To generate the report using a previously created and saved format, select that format from this drop-down. When using this method, you can immediately generate the report without changing any settings. Alternately, you can first review and modify the settings of the format by checking off the available "Provide option to modify settings of saved report format" checkbox.
Start from scratch, without using a previously saved report format - To create your own report format for single-time use or for saving and later re-use, leave the saved report format drop-down blank.
NOTE: If you (or another user) have previously saved a default report format for this ReportBuilder and program, that format is pre-selected here. Make changes to the selection as needed, or leave it at its default value.
NOTE: If you chose to send the report to yourself via the Messages module (in step 6), a notice is first displayed on the page to let you know that report generation is in process and that the report will be sent to your Messages module upon completion. You can then navigate away from the page, or wait for the report to complete and then proceed with step 20. If you did NOT set that option, you can do so now by clicking Send to AWARDS Messages.
In all other instances, the Options page is displayed. Continue with step 9.
TIP: Individual detail report options and/or summary table selections must be set before the report can be generated. For more information on using the various report options, please click here.
TIP: If it is not necessary to save the report format and you only want to generate the report itself, skip to step 15.
