Reporting in Laserfiche Forms

ECS Monthly Tips & Tricks

Reporting in Laserfiche Forms
Analytics and reporting help you make informed decisions about your processes. Let’s explore Reports in Laserfiche Forms.

  • In Laserfiche Forms, click the Reports Page and select the process you want to see data for (The custom Reports tab lets you create reports that show you the information you want about process)
  • Click Create New and choose from a variety of report types to display process data (The created reports that you have access to will appear in the custom reports list)
  • Reports are dynamically updated with new data as processes run
  • If you want to save report data at a specific point in time you can create a snapshot of the report by clicking on the Save Snapshot button (A list of your saved snapshots will be in the Save Snapshots tab. Snapshots can be downloaded and shared with others)
  • The Reports Schedules tab lets you automatically generate a snapshot of a custom report at a specified date and time
  • Operational Reports tab lets you see how many instances of the process are currently running, what stages the instances are at, and which tasks are reaching their deadlines or are overdue

These reports provide a high level picture of the process, letting you quickly identify bottlenecks, overdue tasks, and high achievers. The Monitor Page is geared more towards administrators who want to check on the status of and troubleshoot process instances.

Improved Features in Laserfiche Cloud 2020.4

Additionally, new actions, such as changing the major and minor disciplines, have been added to the Run Application Action activity in workflows for Ellucian connections.
