How Windward's Manager Works

Windward Manager, our report and scheduling server allows for access and control from any application, regardless of programming language. Scheduled reports can be run any time and you can email the report as an attachment, save the report to your server, or save it in the Manager platform.

Within the Manager Report Portal, you can easily see all the information on users, templates, POD files, scheduled report runs and previously scheduled reports. Log in to Manager, upload the templates that you’ve built with Report Designer, Windward's template designer, and you’re off and running!

User Roles

Easily assign roles with specific permissions and functionality to individual employees. This functionality ensures that reports can be accessed by as many end users as you need while limiting access where necessary. User Roles also ensure that the user experience for each individual is optimized, since all of the features that do not apply to a specific role are hidden. This results in a cleaner UI.

Easy Template Upload

Uploading templates can be done in individually or in bulk. This speeds up the process of running reports by centralizing where templates are located.

Scheduled Reports

Manager supports all basic scheduling functionality and ships with an ability to use Cron settings (which gives the administrator the option to configure custom scheduling settings beyond the typical ones included). Users can also configure email options inside the scheduler to send reports via email upon running the reports.

Ad Hoc Reporting

Running reports can also be done on an ad hoc basis. Users can run ad hoc reports one by one or select multiple templates and simultaneously. Users are not bound to a single output type when running multiple reports but can choose a desired output format for each individual report as well as input any specific variables. It is also easy to download reports immediately after they are run from the window or select any number of them to download later.

See Manager for Yourself

Manager is perfect for organizations that need an interface for managing, running and scheduling reports.

  • Enjoy complete control in designing your document with add-ins to Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint to incorporate the precise design elements you want: custom pages, graphics, fonts colors, rotation, spacing, and effects.

Smart Document Flexibility

  • Powerful in-line data tags (forEach, if, switch, out, chart, and more) insert conditional logic to customize your output to meet your specific document needs.
  • Unlimited user-defined variables and interactivity options (link, sort, filter, pivot, and more) offer various levels of complexity to match the needs of your business.
  • Organize and better manage data with data source/field viewer and data tag viewer.

Seamless Data Integration

  • Automate and scale your document generation process with reusable user-defined elements and data connections (PODs).
  • Intermix data from different data sources easily and quickly.
  • Our Data Wizards make it easy for non-technical users to create data queries from the datasource with simple drag and drop actions.

Scalable Document

  • Users appreciate powerful document reusability with the ability to import templates as sub-templates.
  • Trust the quality of your documents with our error validation and verification alerts and tools.
  • Version control and document editing are easy to manage with Microsoft Office’s track changes, comments, password protection, and document element locking.
