Report Queue Preferences

Administrators can set global preferences for the report queue, such as how many days a report can remain in the queue. For more information about the report queue, refer to System Report Queue.

To view or work with PowerReports, click the PowerReports tab. For more information, refer to ReportWorks Administrator Report Queue.

Set Report Queue Preferences

  1. Navigate to the Report Queue Preferences page. 

  2. Use the table following these instructions to enter information in the fields.

  3. Click Submit to save your changes.



Automatically Delete Completed Jobs After

Enter the number of days each job remains in the report queue. After the specified number of days, PowerSchool automatically deletes the affected job.

Valid value range is 2 through 90. Any value outside that range will be reported as the nearest valid value. For example, a value less than 2 is treated as 2. A value higher than 90 is treated as 90.

Maximum Pending Jobs per User

Enter the maximum number of jobs each user can have in the report queue at one time. To indicate no limit, enter 0.

Number of Report Processes

Enter the maximum number of report processes, or number of reports running at the same time. This setting does not take effect until the next time the PowerSchool server is restarted.

Use Advanced PDF Processing

Select this field to support UTF-8 characters in reports and access advanced font settings.

DFont fonts are not supported when Use Advanced PDF Processing is enabled, but TTF/TTC and OTF are supported. Helvetica is no longer available and is mapped to Arial.

Automatically Start Report Queue on System Startup

Select either Startup or Don't Startup to indicate what you want the report queue to do when the PowerSchool server restarts.

Modifying this setting affects restarts, so use extreme caution when selecting this option.

If you indicate Don't Startup and want to manually start the report queue, enter Repo_Batch_Startup in the PowerSchool Server's Execute window.

To disable the report queue for a single restart instead of modifying this setting, press Command + Option for Mac or Ctrl + Alt for Windows when starting the PowerSchool Server. The report queue will not start up for this session but will do so when the server restarts.
