When creating a report, you have the option to save the report. You would do this if you want to generate the report on a regular basis without having to go through the Report Wizard to select your report characteristics each time. Saving a report allows you to save all of the report characteristics such as who you are reporting on, the reporting options and the display by category. Once saved, you can either generate the report, modify it or delete it.
Note: Once the report is saved, you can also schedule it to be generated and sent to you on a regular basis.
