Ad Hoc Reports
If a desired report is not available in Web Reporter, you may need to use the AdHoc Report module of Horizon. You need to be logged into Horizon as a Supervisor (not Circ) to access the AdHoc reports. The first time you save an AdHoc report on your computer, you will need to specify where to save the file using the following instructions: Save Horizon AdHoc Reports .
If you are unable to find a desired report in Web Reporter or in the Horizon AdHoc module, contact Sandie at 1-800-567-9024 or at email@example.com
