Web Reportsscheduling reports, browser-based reports

The dedicated web report server, KeyReporter, is an optional component included in the K2 toolkit that can run reports automatically on schedules and provide web browser access. KeyConfigure can run and display all of the same reports, but KeyReporter adds a customizable dashboard, Division availibity (with configurable maps), and scheduled reports.

38. Start KeyReporter

If you have ignored KeyConfigure's prompt to turn on KeyReporter, select the Reports item from the Windows menu, and you will be prompted again. Step through the wizard to turn on KeyReporter. Note that if the computer where KeyServer is installed is already running a web server, you will have to choose non-standard ports for KeyReporter to use.

39. Connect to KeyReporter with any Web browser

In the URL field of your preferred browser, enter “http://” followed by the address of the computer on which KeyReporter is installed. If you had to specify a non-standard port, add a colon and the port number to the URL. You will be presented with the Login page. For the Account, use “Administrator”, and type the same Administrator password as you used for KeyConfigure.

If you changed the Administrator password from its default, “Sassafras”, use your custom password here as well.

Initially, the default “K2 Web Reports” Dashboard shows two widgets - an Intro and a Sassafras News widget. Click the "Quick Intro" button in the Welcome widget to see an interactive tour of the basic dashboard UI. Next, experiment with customizing your dashboard, or running reports from the “Builder” page.
