You can also run, view, and distribute PS/nVision reports through a browser, without installing PeopleSoft on client machines. You can send reports as email attachments rather than requiring recipients to navigate to a location on a file server.
PS/nVision on the web includes the following:
• Internet versions of report requests, report books, and scope definitions.
• Output in both Excel (XLS) and HTML formats.
• Email options to send PS/nVision reports to individual users or users in specified roles.
Note. To take full advantage of the web features, you need Microsoft Office 2000 on the PS/nVision report server. Microsoft Office 2000 is not required on any other servers or on any computers used to initiate report books or report requests from the browser. A report server is a Windows NT machine with PS/nVision (PeopleTools client software), Excel, and PeopleSoft Process Scheduler installed. Process Scheduler is needed to schedule all PS/nVision processes. Office 2000 is required for creating reports in HTML format.
Upon completion of this lesson, you will be able to:
•Set up report requests.
•Submit report requests.
•Use report books.
