If you do not have permission to create or view reports, you will need to ask the application manager to grant you access.

Application managers can view the permissions setting by going to Modify Settings and selecting Access. The administrator will be able to see the people with access to each QuickBase app and the roles each person has to create and view different types of reports. If the check mark is grayed out for any report, that means that it is disabled. The administrator can click it to enable access to that report.
