Do you want to be able to save a regularly run report?

If there is a particular report you run on a regular basis then just choose any options you require and click on 'Get Report'. Once you can view the results on screen then you can simply bookmark the URL or copy the URL from your browser's address bar and save it anywhere you like. When you want to reuse this it will take you straight into the results page you had saved. Do be careful to check the period covered is still relevant for your needs.

How to fix/freeze column headings in reports

When you run a report the default 'format' is HTML. This is a great option to view results on screen but it is not possible to fix headers in html so as you scroll down you can no longer view the headers. If you want to do more with the results, such as to be able to fix the header view, then choose either the CSV or TSV from the 'Format' options. Then you can click 'Get report'. This way you can open a CSV in Excel, for example, and then freeze rows in that as required.
