You can connect to DSA by several means including your PC, the web, and mobile devices. DSA reports can also be sent by email.

A user interface is the means by which you communicate with and control your DSA reports, views and dashboards.
You may access the user interfaces via the following methods:

  • A web browser connected to your DSA Server over the internet or internal network (intranet).
  • A mobile device connected to your DSA Server over the internet or internal network.
  • A PC running DSA Desktop - a version for Macs is around the corner.
  • Individuals can also receive DSA views (reports and dashboards) by email.

A report (or "view") is a tabular report comprised of columns and rows, or by a graphical report (a chart).
A dashboard is a report comprised of more than one reports.
