The Advanced Reporting service is a self-service application that allows you to generate reports to get in-depth information about your exchanges. You can control which users have access to reports, as well as automate and schedule reports. All reports are available for download for 90 days.
The service is initially set up by Intralinks. Once reporting is set up, your designated company administrator(s) can manage reports or Intralinks can do it as a managed service.
Users that are given the Report Requestor role can schedule reports on the ReportPortal. The reports run in the background and are automatically posted to the ReportPortal.
