Power Reports


ARKES provides a periodic bulk report generation tool called Power Reports. Power Reports tool allows the user to select multiple Built-in and Custom reports to be run for several Exchange objects (namely, Policy, Protocol Connector, Mailbox Store, Public Folder Store, Mailboxes, Distribution Groups, Contacts and Public Folders), with powerful report scope options and finally run the reports at scheduled intervals. The Power Reports tool has the ability to export, e-mail the generated reports.

ARKES Power Reports Wizard will help you create and store the settings for a task in the Power Reports Task Manager. The scheduled task will take the schedule settings (Schedule Type, Run As parameter) provided using the wizard. The task will not run unless a valid password is specified for the Run As parameter. 

Please note the following information prior to using the Power Reports Wizard:
  1. Scheduled reports will be created as a "task" in Windows Task Scheduler.
  2. The scheduled job will generate and export / e-mail the reports in different file formats (HTML, CSV, XLSX) to the desired folder path/mail recipient.
  3. By default, for each task, a sub-folder with the task name will be created under the specified export path. All selected reports will be exported to a time-stamped sub-folder, in the format "yyyy-mm-dd hh.mm.ss", under the task name folder. Therefore, the full folder path for all the exported reports refers to the following directory: <Export path><Task name><Time stamp>.
  4. A separate file will be created for each report in the specified file format. For example, in the HTML file format, each report will be created as a .html file.
