RealtimeCRM is set up to provide you with up to date information all the time. However, sometimes you want to take a snapshot of your business or to analyse trends over time. This is where the RealtimeCRM reporting section can be used.
Viewing reports potentially gives access to lots of information spread throughout RealtimeCRM so you should be careful to only provide access to reports to those people that need to view them. By default, reporting is switched off for each user but can easily be enabled by an administrator.
If you are an administrator then you can grant any User the ability to view Reports by doing the following steps: 1. Click on your name at the top right of the CRM and then select Settings 2. From the sub-menu that displays select Users 3. Select Edit next to the User for whom you want to enable reporting permissions 4. On the window that appears scroll down to the Reports section and click to enable Can View Reports
The User will immediately see the Reports option appear on their menu on the left hand side of their screen.
To remove the right of a User to view Reports you should follow the steps above in Enable Reporting but select Can View Reports again in order to toggle the option off.
The menu option will no longer be available to the User once the reporting privilege has been removed.
In addition to the ability to view reports outlined above the reports that a User sees will also be limited by other permissions that they have. This ensures that the User does not inadvertently see information through viewing a report that they otherwise would not see through RealtimeCRM.
For details on which permission levels are needed for each report please see the information given for each of the reports. As an example, the Management Reports for Sales Team Performance and Client Income Report both require the User to be an Administrator.
