Using Send Content to Transmit an Assembled Report

You can use the Send Content tool to send an assembled report to outside organizations for publication. The report and all the sections in the report that require approval, must be approved before you send it.

When you post the report on the Report Assembler page, the system automatically generates the HTML for the report and saves it to the location you configured for assembled reports. This content can then be sent for approval. Once it has been approved, you can select it on the Sent Content page for transmitting.

Alternatively, you can select the contents of the assembled report and paste them into a new file in another tool such as Word and save. This enables you to apply formatting to the contents and save in formats such as HTML or PDF. You can then add this file as new content to the appropriate content folder using the File Attachment option and attaching this file.
