Reports: Content Manager OnDemand (CMOD)

CMOD (Content Manager OnDemand) is a program that enables the user to access Mainframe reports and statistics formerly performed by Document Direct. It allows for a streamlined process for searching and viewing these types of items. The CMOD icon is located on your desktop. The following steps will walk you through searching for a report.

  • Double-Click the desktop icon to open it.

  • To begin a search, Click on the magnifying glass to open the search folders and a search box.

  • You can select “Recent Searches” to open the list of reports you have recently viewed in CMOD, or you can select “All Searches” to open the list of reports to which you have permission to view. Whichever folder you decide to use, you must first expand it. The folder will not expand if you click on the folder itself or within the perforated lines shown below. To expand the folder, you must click near the arrow to the left of the folder or by clicking in some other part of the light-blue shaded area. In order to use the search box, at least one of the folders must be expanded so it will know where to search.

  • After expanding the “All Searches” folder, the available reports are shown in alphabetical order. If you know which report you want to see, simply click on the report.

  • If you use the search box, you don’t have to know the full name of the report. For example, if you know all the medical reports have 360 in their name, you can just type “360” to only show the medical reports, as shown below. The list will narrow as you type more. Click on the report you wish to view. In this instance, report CG360R8 has been chosen.

    Report search screen
  • After clicking the report, there are many search criteria fields that can be utilized, however, sometimes less is best. Once you click in the date fields, a calendar will appear to let you choose the year, month, and day. In this case, we’re only searching for the Report Date between 6/1/17 and 6/30/17 that will return a result for the May 2017 report (since May’s statistics aren’t available until May has ended). After the Search Criteria has been entered, click the “Search” button located near the bottom of the window.

  • When the report shows, double-click anywhere in the shaded area to view it.

  • If you get a window asking, “Do you want to run this application?” Click “Run.”

    Application permission screen
  • The requested report is now available for viewing. There are several icons from the toolbar that could be beneficial, such as, Print, Magnify, Go to Page, Next Page, and Find. The last icon to the right that’s indicated with an arrow, “Copy pages to file,” allows the document to be exported and saved as a text file, if desired.

    Report view options
  • When printing the report, be sure to only print the “Current page.” Using the report above as an example, selecting “All pages” would result in a print job of 217 pages, which is not recommended.
