The Select Report page is the first page which users see when they log on to MAST Online.

An introduction to the Select Report page

The Select Report page displays lists of reports under three main tabs, which indicate what the numbers in those reports denote. For example, all reports on the Vehicles tab refer to numbers of vehicles and their related drivers, but not to crashes or casualties.

On each tab, a list of related reports is displayed. Each report has a thumbnail picture, a name and a description.

The Select Report page includes a blank report under each main heading and a seelction of public reports for use as templates, as well as with any saved reports created by the active user.

How to use the the Select Report page

A single click on a report thumbnail opens the Edit Report page for that report.

  • To create a report based on a template, click the appropriate public report thumbnail. The Save Report As link should immediately be used to save it with a suitable name, and the template can then be modified as required.
  • To create a new report from scratch, click the blank report thumbnail for the required data set. The Save Report As link should be used to save the new report with a suitable name.
  • To open an existing report for editing, printing and/or downloading, simply click on its thumbnail.
  • Each report also has several associated links for performing common actions with a report.
    • The Rename link allows users to edit report names and descriptions, and displays all dimensions, measures and filters used in report design.
    • The Delete link allows users to delete a report permanently (WARNING: There is no Undo feature, so deleted reports cannot be recovered)
