Generating KCS custom reports

As a Knowledge-Centered Support (KCS) Coach, you can use the reporting capabilities in BMC Remedy Smart Reporting to create KCS custom reports


When the KCS Coach of a KCS knowledge author changes, the new KCS Coach can create and view the assessment results for the KCS knowledge author, using the KCS : AQI Results for Articles report. The new KCS Coach can also view the results of old assessments conducted by the previous KCS Coach, using the same report. The previous KCS Coaches continue to view the results of assessments they conducted, but cannot view the results of assessments conducted by the new KCS Coach. For more information, see KCS forms and escalations .
Additionally, a BMC Remedy AR System administrator or an unrestricted user having any KCS permission can view results of assessments conducted by KCS Coaches for any Company.

  • You have the necessary KCS and Smart Reporting permissions.
