6. Select the Team Content folder. Then select the UCPath Reporting folder to access the reports.

11. Once the report is compiled, you will receive an HTML version that is formatted for viewing on the screen. When you select the arrow at the top of the screen, open additional options to export the data in various formats.

 

Note: The report can also take some time to transition the data to the requested format, depending on the size of the report.

 

Additionally, all reporting content is located under the Team Content folder.  You will not have functionality under the My Content folder because your profile is not defined to support that feature.
