Report categories

The Report gallery is where reports are stored, created, edited and managed.

The gallery is divided into five categories Accounts, Cases, Entries, Financials and Users that house reports based on content. These categories can be expanded or collapsed as desired. When creating a new report, selecting the content, such as Accounts, Cases, Work hours, etc. from the drop-down menu, will determine the category where the report will be located in the Report gallery.

Report sections

Within each category reports are separated into Available, Shared and My reports sections based on report ownership and workflow.


Available reports are frequently requested, general reports provided by Severa which are visible to all people in a company, however data populating the report is visible according to Access rights.

Available reports can't be deleted, but can be made/removed as a favorite or moved to My reports.


The Shared section only appears in the Report gallery when reports are shared for the Access rights profile of the person using the system. Shared reports can be edited, made/removed as a favorite or sent as a link to colleagues.

My reports

My reports is where people store their own reports. My Reports section is populated by creating new reports, editing and renaming existing reports or moving reports from the Available section. Reports in the My reports section can be renamed, deleted, edited, made/removed as a favorite or sent as a link to colleagues.
