Activate reports in GpsGate Server

GpsGate Server includes a completely re-designed reporting framework for easier report configuration and increased reporting performance. Reports are downloaded to your GpsGate Server from the Site Administration application. New reports are continuously added, so please contact us if you need a specific report!

This guide describes how to download and activate a report, using the Detailed Distance Report template as an example.

Note: Go directly to step 4 if your GpsGate Server adminstrator already has gone through the configuration steps.
