Publishing a Map Report

The following section describes how to publish a Map report and use it outside ActivityInfo.

Once you design a Map report you can share it with other users who are have been added to your Databases or publish it so that people outside ActivityInfo can see it.

The Map report will be automatically updated as data are updated.

To be able to publish a Map report you must be the Database owner or to have been assigned the 'Publish reports' permission.

When published, a read-only version of the report will be available as:

  • Standalone webpage
  • Embeddable HTML snippet

We recommend paying special attention to the data included in a report that you publish as well as to the users assigned with the 'Publish reports' permission.

You can unpublish a Map report anytime.

For Databases added before August 3, 2020, the 'Publish reports' permission must be manually assigned to Roles via the Roles section or manually granted to specific users via the user management section.

For Databases added from that date onward the following stands for each Database template:

  • Blank database template: the Role of Administrator will have both the'Share reports' and 'Publish reports' permission
  • Multi-partner reporting database template: the Role of Administrator will have both the 'Share reports' and 'Publish reports' permission
  • Case management database template: the Role of Administrator will have the 'Share reports' permission only.
