Simon User Guide

New/Edit Report > Report Options

This is the Report Options section of the New / Edit Report window. This section lets you specify how this report should be generated: how often, what pages to include, what template to use, etc, as described below:

Refresh report every: Set how often to output the report here; specify an amount and units, e.g. 20 Minutes or 2 Hours. The report will be output immediately after clicking OK, and again at this frequency, as long as Simon is running and the report isn't being edited or paused.

Generate summary page: If checked, a Summary page is output. It typically includes a table much like the Monitor window's tests table, with links to Detail pages for each test.

Generate detail pages: If checked, a Detail page is output for each included test. They typically include more information about each test.

Use template: Choose the template to use for this report. Several templates are provided built-in, and updated and user-submitted ones can be downloaded from the Simon Extras web page. See the Report Templates page for more information about templates.

Reveal in Finder: Click this button to display the selected template folder in the Finder, so you can view or edit it.

Skip paused tests: If checked, any tests that are paused or auto-paused at the time the report is generated will be omitted. Useful if you routinely have several paused tests, and don't want them clutting up your report.
