    The Reports Wizard's first screen, Header, appears.
  3. To print a header on the report, select Show Header and type your header text into the text box. Then (whether you entered a header or not), click Next.
  4. Complete the Date Range screen.
    1. Under Action Date Range, do one of the following:
      • Select Start and End dates for supervisor actions with configuration objects.
      • Select the Any check box to select any date range for supervisor actions with configuration objects. If checked, the Start and End date fields are disabled.
    2. Under Actions, select the check boxes which indicate actions that you wish to audit: Insert, Modify, Delete.
    3. Under Sort Options, select one of the following from the drop-down menu:
      • By Object's type
      • By Supervisor name
      • By Timestamp date.
  5. Click Next.
  6. On the Configuration Object Types screen, under Data Types, select the check boxes for data types that you want to include in the report, and clear the check boxes for items that you want to omit.
  7. Click Next.
  8. On the Data Page, under Available Users, select the supervisors and other users (including agents, if shared transport groups are enabled) that you want to include in your report.
  9. Click Next.
  10. On the second Data Page, under Available Sites, select the sites to include in the report.
    You can expand business units to display their sites. You can select multiple sites.
  11. Click Finish.

The report appears in the Report Viewer. The report is initially sorted by business unit within the enterprise, by site name within each business unit. Further sorting is based on Sort Options selected on the Date Range screen.
