Liberty Reports has the ability to operate in "viewer mode" on workstations where the Event 1 System Folder is unreachable. Liberty Reports does not need to be licensed in order to operate in viewer mode, and it will not use any license concurrencies. Although you cannot refresh data while in viewer mode, you can leverage the Save data with report option to display the data as it was last refreshed.
Viewer mode has the following uses:
- Remote Data Entry
You can e-mail workbooks to remote Liberty Reports users for data entry in the field. The remote users do not need access to the Event 1 System Folder, and can instead work with the report using the saved data. Once the data has been entered, the remote user can e-mail the spreadsheet back to the main office where the changes can be implemented as desired.
- External Review
If you use the Save data with report option, then other users can view your Liberty Reports workbooks while leaving the potential to reconnect intact. Alternatively, you can use the Save As Values feature however the values-copy of the workbook would not be able to be refreshed later.
- Network Reliability
Should your workstation experience connectivity issues with the Event 1 System Folder, Liberty Reports may enter viewer mode in order to gracefully handle the disconnect.
