How to Install a Report Writer Report on your Genesis System

Modified on Tue, May 2, 2023 at 11:22 AM

First, you will need to save the .rw file onto your local workstation. How this is done depends on the version and type of browser you are using.

Most internet browsers will let you left-click the "Download Report" links you see in the report library, in order to save to your local machine.

For other browsers like Internet Explorer, you may have to right-click the "Download Report" link, then click "Save Link As" or "Save Target As".

Make sure to the Save As File Type drop down is set to All Files and then add a .rw to the file name as seen below.

Once you have successfully saved the .rw file you can import it into Genesis.

Navigate to the Report Writer module in Genesis. Once there, click on the Import sub tab.

Click "Browse..." to look on your Computer for the .rw file you downloaded. You can change the report number and name if desired.

Click "Upload File" to finish. The newly imported report should now appear in your Reports List. It can be run against your district's data right away, unless it first needs to be configured.
