schoolAbility includes the ability to schedule reports using an approach similar to Microsoft Outlook calendars, with daily, weekly, monthly and yearly schedules. Once scheduled, schoolAbility automatically runs the report (based on permissions) at the scheduled time and saves it to “My Reports.”
Specific tasks (like payroll approval or 1099 processing) can be configured to automatically send reports to a secure, system-wide report warehouse.
My Reports & Report Warehouse
Every time you run a report, it is sent to My Reports (a “personal” reports warehouse).
All major records in schoolAbility (e.g., employees, requisitions, assets, journal entries, etc.) can have any number of attachments. In 2015, Escape Online 5 users stored almost 1.1 million attachments.
