SimplyReports is a web-based application that extracts data from the Polaris database and allows you to create custom reports about patrons, patron accounts, holds, and items. With Polaris SimplyReports, you can produce thousands of different kinds of reports using a simple Web-based interface.
Using SimplyReports does not require in-depth knowledge of the Polaris database or expertise in Structured Query Language (SQL). You define the report criteria (parameters) by selecting the data columns for the report output and applying filters to limit the data. Once you define the report parameters, you can download the report in a specified file format, or you can save the report parameters and schedule the report to run at a later time.
