Can I email a map report? Or a link to the report? I don't see the cute little email icon at the top of the report page.

    It looks as if I can just copy the URL and email that, but is there another way that I am missing?

    Are you trying to email a static image, or an interactive page?
    The former could be done by printing the page on your browser.  The latter means emailing a link.

    I mostly want to let people know the report is available and how to access it, which I can't do from within QB, or at least not from the map report screen. :(
    I was looking for something like a standard (?) emailed report where it has both the report in the body of the email *and* a link to view it in QB. But I will live with it as it is, I guess.  Screenshot is a good idea for at least letting people know what it looks like plus giving them the link. Thanks!

    A record can have a report link field type on the record, just exactly the same as when you have a parent record and it also lists child records on the form. The Form really does not care what type of report you specify, so it be a map report.

    Then you can email the record and also provide a link to the report.

    You may want to create a dummy table with just 1 record in it which will be Record ID# = 1.  Then the "details table" (no relationship is required though), you would have a formula field that also calculates to 1.  [Link to dummy form (=1)]

    Then make a report link field on the dummy table and put the report link on the form and specify on the form to use the map report.

    Thanks!
