Reporting

Reporting contains reports that happen during processing, during quarterlies, and so on. Whatever reports you put in a particular folder are automatically scheduled to be generated when that event occurs. You can drag-and-drop reports into these folders; in doing so, you’re automatically scheduling that report to be run at the time specified by the name of the folder.
