Run a Report to the Report Manager in M-Pathways

Important Information

  • Macintosh (Mac) must use this procedure to run a report in M-Pathways. Windows users can follow this procedure, or they can refer to the Run a Report to a Window in M-Pathways procedure in My LINC ( to use fewer steps to run a report to a window.
  • This procedure assumes that you have an existing Run Control ID. See the M-Pathways Run Control ID Information reference document in My LINC if you want to create a specific Run Control ID for a report.
  • The Report Manager stores the reports you run (or that another user distributes to you) for 60 days in the Financials systems and 99 days in the SA/HRMS systems. You can retrieve and print a report from the Report Manager any time after it is run. See the M-Pathways Report Manager Field Descriptions document in My LINC for additional information about using the Report Manager.
  • The PDF (Portable Document Format) process format allows viewing of reports online. Although the report data cannot be manipulated, the PDF versions of some reports are designed to make it easier to interpret complex report data.
  • The CSV (Comma Separated Value) or XLS (Excel) process formats can be selected if data needs to be manipulated after the report is run. The process type determines which of these format options is available for exporting the report data into Excel. Some reports do not translate clearly into CSV or XLS formats. This is due to the complexity of some report data, specifically with headings and column formatting.
  • If the system doesn't display the report in a window, verify your web browser settings.


The navigation path is different for each report. The Leave Activity by Department report is used as an example for this procedure.
