Intellicus supports report execution and delivery through pre-set jobs.  A job is attached to a task (information about which report should be executed and how it should be delivered) and a schedule (it defines when the job should be executed).

Job is created by clicking Add Job on the Job List page. Created jobs are also listed on the Job List page.

Click Navigation > Schedule > Jobs to open Jobs page.

Add or remove columns in the list

By adding or removing columns you may list only the columns that you need.

Right-click on title-bar to open a context-menu. Context-menu has check-boxes of columns that can be displayed. Check name of the column to display and clear the column that you don’t want to display. The columns will be instantly added / removed from the view.

To close the context-menu, click anywhere on the title-bar.

Sorting the list

It is quicker to find the desired item if the reference is sorted. To sort the list by a column, click its column-title. The list will be sorted in ascending order of the column. Look for an arrow icon on the right edge of the column. It indicates current sort order. Click the column once more to sort the list in opposite order. Clicking another column’s title will sort the list in ascending order of that column.
