Use the Settings > Reporting > Preferences page to provide information used to send completed scheduled reports to selected recipients via email, activate self-reporting, determine how long scheduled reports are stored, and configure when Real-Time Monitor collects data.
1.
Under Email Reports, enter the Email address to display in the "From" field when scheduled reports are distributed via email.
2.
Enter the SMTP server IPv4 address or name for the email server to use for distributing scheduled reports.
3.
Mark the Allow self-reporting check box to let end users in your organization access the Forcepoint Security Manager to run investigative reports on their personal Internet activity.
When this option is selected, the URL used to access self-reporting features is displayed. See Self-reporting.
4.
Under Scheduled Presentation and Report Center Reports (v8.5.3) (Scheduled Presentation Reports in v8.5), use the Store reports for drop-down list to indicate how long reports are stored on the management server machine (5 days, by default).
As you increase the length of time that reports are stored, you affect the amount of disk space required on the management server. The management server is not an appropriate location for a long-term reporting archive.
5.
Use the Warn administrators... drop-down list to indicate how long a warning is displayed on the Review Reports page before a scheduled report is deleted (3 days, by default).
The warning is intended to give administrators time to archive important reports in an appropriate location before they are deleted from the management server.

*
Select Capture data only when Real-Time Monitor is active (default) to improve system performance. With this option selected, data collection begins when you launch Real-Time Monitor. There may be a slight delay (of a few seconds) before records start appearing on the screen.
*
Select Always capture data to have the Real-Time Monitor client continually process data into the RTM database, even when no one is viewing the data. This may have a noticeable effect on system performance.
