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!
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.
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.
