The Quick Access toolbar is a customizable toolbar. It contains a set of commands that are independent of the tab that is currently displayed. You can customize the toolbar by adding buttons for the commands you use most often, and you can move the toolbar to two different locations.

Refresh Report List

Refreshes the report list for each report category. Use this command if you added new report files (such as new custom reports) and they do not appear in the report list. This command accesses the Reports directory on your computer, retrieves information about all of the reports, and rebuilds the lists for each report category.
