Adding reports and documents to the History List

You can use the History List to:

Keep shortcuts to previously run reports and documents, like the Favorites list when browsing the Internet.
Perform asynchronous report and document execution. For example, multiple reports can be run at the same time within one browser, or pending reports can remain displayed even after logging out of a project.
View the results of scheduled reports and documents.

Your MicroStrategy project may be set up to automatically add to your History List the results of every report and document that you execute.

If report and document results are not automatically stored in your History List folder, you can decide which results you want to store in your History List folder.

You can add a report or document to the History List either while it is executing, or after it has executed and you are viewing the results. Both procedures are below.

You also have the option to add report and document results to your History List based on a subscription. This lets you designate a specific set of results to be added automatically to your History List on a scheduled basis. For details, see Scheduling a report or document to be sent to your History List folder.
