Kaseya® Virtual System Administrator™ provides comprehensive reporting for all applications. Reports can be customized, using report parameters, and filtered by organization, machine group, machine ID or view definition. You can output reports to PDF, HTML, or Excel document and brand reports with your own logo. Reports can be scheduled to run automatically and on a recurring basis. They can be private or shared, distributed to the Inbox of VSA users or to email recipients. An optional "requires approval" step is provided, just prior to distribution. Reports can also be bundled into Report Sets, enabling you to schedule a standard batch of reports. Your own Scheduled Reports list shows you every report you have access to, so you can always locate any pending report you've created and schedule or any report you've received.
A published report is based on a report definition. Report definitions contain all the settings that determine the content, layout and file format of the report.
Report definitions are organized using two folder trees in the middle pane, underneath Private and Shared cabinets. Use the following options to manage objects in these folder trees:

Changing the value in the System > Configure > Change URL... > Logo field overrides this default, changing the URL for report headers only. Changing the URL in the Change URL... > Logo field does not affect the display of the Site Header image.
Running / Scheduling a Report
You can select a report definition, then click Run Report to publish the report immediately or click Schedule Report to schedule publication of the report in the future, once or on a recurring basis. You can set options in any of the following tabs. These options apply only to this specific run or scheduling of the report. The report definition remains unchanged.
