Auto select sub levels in organization selectors

Select this check box to automatically select sub-levels when selecting organization nodes in search and report criteria. This can be useful if you have several nodes with multiple sub-nodes and wish to filter content on a specific node including all of its sub-nodes.

If this option is disabled, you will have to check each organization node manually, including sub-nodes, if you want to include them.

In computer and user details, show only applications that require a license

When selected, only applications that require a license will be displayed in the detail view for computers, mobile devices, and users. All other applications are hidden but will be available in lists, reports, and searches depending on how you choose to filter them.

Expand alert groups automatically

Alerts of the same type are grouped. Details of the alert group are hidden by default, but can be expanded by clicking an icon. Select this box to automatically expand alert group details.



Table 3. Settings for Reporting and Exports.

Setting

Description

Page orientation for PDF exports

Select page orientation for PDF exports from the list. If Default is selected, the export will use the pre-defined settings for each list.

Note that list content is adapted to fit the page. Therefore, page orientation will affect font size of the content.

Format handling for export to Excel from lists

The Excel 2003 format contains a 65 000 row limit. Select Use format for Excel 2007/2010 (no row limit) to avoid the limitation. Files exported in the Excel 2007/2010 format cannot be opened in earlier versions of Excel.

Native Microsoft Excel 2007 and 2010 formats (xlsx) are supported which radically decreases file size when exporting reports and lists.
