Using My Reports (Report Builder 2.0)
On a report server configured in native mode, the My Reports folder is a personal workspace that you can use to store and work with reports that you own. Other report server folders are public and typically require users to have advanced permissions to add to or modify folder contents. In contrast, the My Reports folder is a user-managed workspace. You can add or remove reports and folders and save linked reports with personalized settings.
Conceptually, the My Reports folder is similar to the My Documents folder in the Windows file system. Although each user has a folder called My Reports, the folder that each accesses is different from all other users. Except for report server administrators, other users cannot access the contents of the My Reports folder that belongs to you.
The My Reports feature is optional and can be disabled by a report server administrator. If it is enabled, you will see a My Reports folder in the Home folder, which you can access using the Report Manager or a Web browser. For more information, see Finding and Viewing Reports in Report Manager (Report Builder 2.0).
The text string "My Reports" is localized based on the locale of the report server. For more information about using Reporting Services in a multilingual environment, see "Deploying Reporting Services in a Global Environment" in the Reporting Services documentation in SQL Server Books Online.
On a report server configured in SharePoint integrated mode, there is no equivalent to the My Reports folder. For more information, see Viewing and Managing Report Server Items from a SharePoint Site (Report Builder 2.0).
My Reports is empty until you add reports, folders, and other items. Here are some ways to add content to My Reports.
Create a personal linked report and store it in My Reports. Not all reports are available for linking. For more information, see How to: Create a Linked Report in Report Manager (Report Builder 2.0).
Upload a report definition (.rdl) file, report model (.smdl) file, or other files from the file system. You can upload any file, but the report server only processes report files that have an .rdl or .smdl file extension. For more information, see Report Definitions" in the Reporting Services documentation in SQL Server Books Online and How to: Upload a File or Report in Report Manager (Report Builder 2.0).
Create and publish your own reports to My Reports. This requires report design expertise and Report Builder 2.0. For more information, see Working in Report Builder 2.0.
Usually, permissions on My Reports allow you to manage the folder yourself. However, the report server administrator ultimately determines which tasks users can perform. If insufficient permissions prevent you from working with My Reports, see your report server administrator.
