The Reports dialog is designed to provide you with an assortment of different report filtering options. You can open the Reports dialog using the Tools > Create report menu. The Reports dialog consists of a single dialog in which you make all of your selections.

Pick a Report

Use the Select report to view box to select which report you want to generate.  When you select a report from the list, the description of that report is displayed and a sample of the report is displayed on the right side of the dialog.

Pick Filtering Options

Shavlik Protect's reporting utility includes powerful filtering options. Depending on the report you choose, you have choices between basic and/or advanced filtering options.

View the Report

Once you have made your selections, click Generate Report to see the results.  If the Use advanced filter check box is enabled this will cause the Advanced Report Settings dialog to appear; the report will be generated after you specify your advanced filtering options.

Generating a Report from a Data Rollup Console

If a console is a data rollup console, in addition to containing information about each machine it manages, it will also contain information about all the machines managed by the associated remote consoles. The information sent by the remote consoles and collected by the data rollup console is stored in an aggregate database. When you generate reports from the rollup console you automatically have access to all the information contained in the aggregate database.
