  2. Click the 'add view' button () to create a new tabbed panel that you can add reports to.

Step 3: Create and customize views

Note: For scheduled reports, it is best practice to create an additional WhatsUp Gold user to ensure that the scheduled export and email of report data maintains consistent settings, graphing modes, and format. WhatsUp Gold Report Settings WUG17.0N-SP2-REPORTS-SETTINGS-IMG (settings for graphing, top n, and thresholding, for example) persist based on the report instance, the current device selected, and the WhatsUp Gold login you use.
