WorldShare Report Designer allows you to build custom reports, charts, and data visualizations to satisfy library, academic, and agency reporting requirements.
WorldShare Report Designer takes advantage of data in WorldShare Management Services and allows you to build custom reports, charts, and data visualizations to satisfy library, academic and agency reporting requirements. With the outputs, you can help others “see” data and trends so they better understand the information and can put it in a library or business context.
Using Report Designer, you can create a variety of custom reports. Report Designer allows users with the Report Authoring role to use BusinessObjects BI Launchpad and Web Intelligence to access data in the OCLC Production Data Warehouse for both Business Intelligence and Reporting needs.
To ensure optimal performance, standard and custom report results are limited to 50,000 rows. A warning message will appear if report results exceed 50,000 rows returned. For more information, see
