Viewing and Publishing Persistent Reports of eForm

The report you generate is cached and stored in the database for further operations. To take more advantage of it, you may find the “Persistent Reports” feature really helpful. What it does is, it reads the persistent (cached) report data which you had created earlier and use that data to populate the Trends.

Viewing Reports from admin side

  • Go to eForm > View all Reports and click on View Persistent Report
  • This will practically show you the same output as Report & Analysis but it will be a lot faster.
