Business Objects - Launch Pad - Send a Report to Another User's Inbox

This article explains how to send a Business Objects report to a user's inbox in BI Launch Pad.


  • Make sure you know the CNetID for the person you want to send the report to.

  • The recipient will need to have access to the Business Objects subject area (i.e. FR-TT, PAR, HR, SDW, etc) the report belongs to in order to use it.

  • Alert: The report should have no saved data. Different users have security access to different data and you should not disclose information that others may not have access or a reason to see.

  1. Left-click on the report to be sent (to select it)

  2. Click on the Send to button on the Business Objects toolbar and select BI Inbox

  3. Enter the CNetID of the person to send the report to and click the Magnifying glass to find them in the list of names.

  4. Click on the person if they are found

  5. Click > to add them to the selected list

  6. If you need to send the report to additional users, re-select the "User List" and repeat the search for each additional user.

  7. Click on the Send button in the lower right corner.
