The view and download options can be seen beneath. The highlighted portion is the Run Offline Option. The offline reports feature reduces redundant iterations in report generation. With this feature users can redownload a previously generated report without having to rerun the report.
The previous five offline reports run by the user can be viewed in the drop-down right next to Run Offline radio button; see Image 1.1.
The offline reports will also appear in the Report Central Favorites tab under section titled ‘Batch Reports’ as shown in Image 1.2. Reports ready for download will show up with a tick and pending reports will show with an hourglass icon.
