The Report Queue in EMDECS provides 2 main benefits:
1 – Generating certain reports can take some time and involve a lot of system resources. If a report is taking more than a few seconds to generate, you will receive a message on the screen indicating that the report is being sent to the report queue. What this means is that the system will continue to generate the report in the background, freeing up your system to allow you to work on other things while you wait. Visit the queue to see if your report has completed generating (click Refresh each time). You will see a status of COMPLETED when it’s ready. Click the View button to display the report as usual once it has completed generating.
2 – The queue also provides you with an archive of all reports you have recently generated, in case you’d like to call one up again.
The queue is a great solution for managing system resources with regards to EMDECS report generating and access.
