You are able to add user groups to a query to add security and access but if you want to add the grouping to multiple queries, it requires an external tool the company provides. Be careful when using this tool, though, as you cannot use it to remove the group from a batch of reports if you inadvertently add them to ones you did not want.

It is very easy to share reports in Entrinsik Informer. There have been many cases where I would create a report for an end-user, then share that report with them so they can run it whenever they need it. It also allows them to change any criteria or output fields whenever desired. There have also been cases where an end-user started creating a report, but couldn't get something to work correctly, so I would access it and "fix" it for them.

Some of the reports I run in Informer are on course information. The Registrar has to approve the fields I can have access to first. If I write a report, I can keep it private, make it public for anyone with a login to access, or make it available to a specific user or group of users. Our system admins can really tweak security settings down to the field level.

This is one of the strength's of the product. End Users can determine where they share data; and where they do not. The new "Burst Email" functionality has made a lot of users quite Happy!

We enjoy the ability to create import/export files to share reports with other colleges in the NC community college system and users of our ERP system. It would be helpful if the communities were up and running and if more work could be done to collaborate on linking files and data dictionaries.

Because of the security, we are able to build reports for our end users. My staff have written over 2,000 reports, but have only published 200 that are "self-service" for our end users. We might use Informer to build internally used reports. Also, we strive to write simple and flexible reports for our end users so that they have to learn fewer reports. We use "parameters" inside Informer to allow them to chose options such as ID, year, city, state, etc.

Setting up security in Informer has been quite easy. We utilized their LDAP functionality and tied into Active Directory. User like the idea of only having one password. The security within Informer is easy to understand and set up. Reports are easily shared within departments. Our users also like the email function.

There are a few different options available for report sharing and security in Informer. It's important to have a consistent method and be sure that report creators are following this method. It's possible to use roles from the LDAP server (e.g. Active Directory), or set up Informer specific roles and groups. Reports can be shared with individuals or with groups. Different access can be given at every 'layer' of the product - from specific reports to particular tables in a data source, to data source and administrative access.

Informer has very granular control over permissions for each individual report. Although not needed in most cases, it's reassuring to know that I can share reports with others and not worry about them accidentally breaking it. Our institution uses security roles well, so it's easy for me to assign permissions by these roles, or to individual users.

You can't really share but you can generate PDF files and email them as attachments. If you're running reports on a scheduler, the informer scheduler works quite well.
