Coming this summer, we've got one of our largest updates ever. While other features will be covered in future updates, we're going to go into one particular, very important aspect of it this month: Reporting updates.
New Reports Menu

Along the left, you'll see the list of reports, grouped under rough top-level categories. As you click on particular reports, appropriate options and filters will be made available to you. You can then either run the report, showing it on screen, or schedule emailed versions of the report to send utilizing the email server you've set in options.
Replacing the old emailed reports tool, which was limited to a few specific reports, you will be able to schedule any report in the software to be emailed to an address on a recurring basis in either PDF or Excel format.

In order to better preview the reports, we're making a number of exported PDFs and Excel files available so that you can see the style you would be getting. Note that you'll need an appropriate program installed to work with these.
