If needed, the Capture Visual Media Management system provides the ability to export reports. Navigate to the desired report and click on the download button. You will be prompted with a list of available formats. Select the format you would like to retrieve and click the Download option to initiate the process.


Once the download is complete, navigate to the location where the download is directed to your computer or device.

Within the reports section, identify the specific report that needs deleting. Navigate to the delete button associated with the selected report. The action will prompt to confirm the deletion of the report before permanently removing it. This confirmation step helps prevent accidental deletions. Read the confirmation message carefully and click delete to proceed with the action.


The system will remove the selected report from the reports section. Verify that the report has been successfully deleted by checking that it is no longer listed or displayed within the reports section.


It's important to exercise caution when deleting reports, as the action is usually irreversible. Make sure to review the deletion choices carefully to avoid the unintended removal of important data or information.


Users can often export generated reports in various formats such as PDF, CSV, and more. This allows for further analysis, sharing with stakeholders, or integration with other reporting tools. There is also an option to automate report generation and distribution.




The reports section in the Capture Visual Media Management system enhances data-driven decision-making by providing users with valuable insights into asset usage, user behaviour, metadata completeness, compliance, and other relevant metrics. It empowers organisations to measure the effectiveness of their system, optimise asset management processes, and make informed decisions to drive business success.
