Crystal 9 reports can be run from PeopleSoft Process Scheduler in the following ways:

• As a process definition.

• As part of a job.

• As part of a scheduled jobset.

• From an application page.

 

If you submit a process request, you can run the report on a client workstation or on a Microsoft Windows server without having to quit the PeopleSoft system or use a third-party scheduling program. If you schedule processes to run on a Microsoft Windows server, you can run the report at a future date and time.

 

When Crystal reports are run through PeopleSoft Process Scheduler, you can do one of the following actions:

• Specify an output file name.

• Use the default file name.

• View the status of the processes using Process Monitor.

• View completed reports in the Report Manager.

 

You can format Crystal reports that will be run through the PeopleSoft Process Scheduler by specifying output options for: system settings, process types, process definitions, scheduled JobSet items, and process requests.

 

In this topic, you will review how to specifying output options to run reports through the PeopleSoft Process Scheduler.
