Checkout Activity Report

You run the Checkout Activity Report to see a list of what elements are currently checked out. The report includes elements from all the databases watched by CIAO!.

Since this report shows check-out activity at the time it is run, you can save previous report data from one run to the next so you have a history of check-out activity.

To create a Checkout Report

  1. From the File menu, choose Reports > Create Checkout Report.
    All databases listed in the CIAO! Config database are included in the report.
    You see the Create CIAO! Report window with a default title and the current date and time. You can change the report name by changing the text in the Description box.
    Create Report Window
    If you do not have a report database, CIAO! creates one.
  2. To create the report, click OK.
    You see a message with the report's location.

To view the checkout report

  1. Open the CIAO! Report database.
  2. Open the CIAO! Checkout Report view.
    The view is sorted by database name (by default). An alternate view is sorted by project and database name.
