Generating Reports Dialog Box


Applies to: Starter, Pro, Plus, & Enterprise Plans

When attempting to generate a Report within Absorb, Admins will be presented with one of two dialog box options depending on how long it will take to generate the Report.

Below is the first of two possible dialog box options that may appear once an Admin clicks Generate Report from within any report. When seeing this dialog box, the report has automatically begun generating. If you do not wish to wait for it to complete, you can click the 'X' at the top right, or on the 'Send Email Upon Completion' button to be informed when it's ready. As always, any previously generated reports can be found in Generated Reports under Setup from the main navigation. 


Below is the second possible dialog box that may appear once an Admin clicks Generate Report from within any report. Instead, you will need to choose between 'View Generated Reports', or 'Send Email Upon Completion'. 

Choosing 'View Generated Reports' will begin the report generation process, and redirect you directly to the Generated Reports report. It's important to note that the report may not be immediately available here, as it can take a few minutes for the generation process to complete. You may need to refresh the page in order to see the report once it is available. 

Selecting 'Send Email Upon Completion' instead will begin the report generation process, and send an email to the email address associated with your profile once it's available. You may wish to choose this option to avoid being forwarded to Generated Reports, and continue with your current workflow. 

Please Note: The report has not automatically begin generating if you see this dialog box. Clicking the 'X' button will cancel the report generation, and simply close the dialog box.
