What is the report identifier?

Every report generated in GT reporting has a unique Report Identifier. This is an 8 character code used to identify a previously generated report with the exact parameters used at the time of generation.

Always include the report identifier with support requests related to the contents of a specific report. This will ensure our support team can review the report exactly as it was generated.
