Reports and Forums

I have two queries:
1) Is it possible to send reports that are generated through mails to the user so that the people outside the system can see it
2) Is there any place where we can have forums and where we can update the details to the customer and customer can come and see details about the company and can reply to the message.

Re: Reports and Forums

Hello Animesh, if what you are trying to achive is to have non-ppm users to access information from ppm you will most likely need an addon tool like a report engine to generate that information outside of ppm.
Obviously users accessing info in ppm are expected to have a licence.
For your second question, you can set up a forum software besides ppm, but then you need to decide on what information and how (also as an attached report?) you want to do that.

Re: Reports and Forums

Currently what we do is generate data from the reports and then send it to users through printout. Now what we want is to generate reports from PPM and then send those reports only to users through mail we dont want to give any access to customers on any tool.

Re: Reports and Forums

You could use a third party reporting tool like BIRT or JasperReport (or Business Objects of course), have that generate the report and save it to a temp folder and than have some kind of that sends the reports it finds there. Can be any kind of tool, VB, Java, ...
The only difficult point will be the addressing. Easiest way would probably be to put the address in file name and extract it from there, so you would not need an additional lookup somewhere.
