With 1805 you can share a report with Users, Groups or Roles as follow:

  1. From the Report Center select any reports
  2. From the Action Menu select Share
  3. Type any name in the name search field or select the value help icon Value Help.jpg
    • Sharing Reports with Users
      • Name Search behaviour: For the name field enter only the Username, First Name, Last Name or middle name you want to search
        Note: If you have multiple users with same name only the first 7 names are shown from the name field list.

        Note: Do not use space or combination of First name, Last name, Partial name, Full name as it doesn't return any result (e.g. Adele Smoke will not return any results)

      • Name Search Value Help behaviour: If more than 7 ‘similar’ names are available, in the system, use the Value Help Value Help.jpg from the name field to find the desired user. (e.g. in this case Super Admin is also shown while it wasn't before)

        Note: If the Name Search Value Help runs for more than ~5 minutes the Value Help window opens but returns an error (Time out or fetching).
        In such cases you can use the additional fields (Department – Division - Location - User Role) to filter the user out.

      • Department - Division - Location search behaviour: You can also use the additional fields (Department – Division-Location-user role) to further filter the user selection. 
        e.g. in this case by selecting N/A for the Department, Division, Location I was able to drill down to the Super Admin user and share the report with the user.
