Building Reports

Getting Started

This section is designed to provide Administrators of the system the knowledge needed to grant access to the Report Writing tool as well to provide Users with the knowledge needed to start using the tool. As with any Report Writer, an understanding of database structure and the system is very important. This tool should be used by Power Users of Cyber Recruiter to help design reports but can be used by the everyday user to access and run reports.

Izenda Ad Hoc for Cyber Recruiter enables you to easily access your databases directly and quickly transform raw data into useful and readily understood information. With Ad Hoc you can extract the information you need from one or more related tables and format it into tables, reports, or charts. You can view the resulting report in your Web-browser and then print it. You can also export reports in several formats, including Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, and Adobe PDF.

Imagine that your boss has asked for a list of applicants for each requisition. You know that your database has a table called Applicants, and another table called AppReq, and that they can be linked together using the common field called ApplNum. Using Ad Hoc, you can “join” the two tables and then choose the data fields you need, such as customer name, phone number, order number, order date, and order amount. You can use a filter to select only open requisitions. You can sort the data by manager. Finally you can view or print the report, create the report as a PDF file, or output it to Excel. It is so easy. It is so fast. Your boss will be amazed.
 
This user manual will step you through each simple process in using Ad Hoc, and provide you with what you need to know to create your queries and reports. Any data that your application developer has included in the database can be accessible to you in creating Ad Hoc reports.
Izenda Ad Hoc is a reporting solution which allows a user to design and run reports from a web browser. It consists of a query designer and pages which list and view reports. Specific security must be set under Admin > Security > Group Security prior to accessing the Query Designer. This tool can be set to simply view reports or design reports in addition to allowing only access to specific groups.
