Navigating the Scheduled Reports Manager

Recently, I had to modify or delete several of my scheduled reports. To access them, I went to the Scheduled Reports Manager.  The screen that opened showed me everything I needed to make my changes.  I could see each report's name on the left as well as the "Edit" and "Delete' icons on the right.  However,  I could only see 10 of my reports on the screen.   I wanted to view all my reports at once because several of them had similar names and I didn't want to risk deleting or modifying the wrong reports.

 

To expand my view, I selected "50" from the "Show" drop-down at the bottom right corner of the screen. Unfortunately, when I did this the screen changed drastically. It still showed my report names on the left, but I could no longer see the "Edit"/"Delete" icons on the right.  The only way I could hit the delete button was to scroll so far to the right that I could no longer see the report name.  As a result, I could not be confident that I was deleting the right report without having to scroll back and forth several times to check and double-check.  This may seem like a small matter, but when one is editing numerous reports at the same time, it makes the process slow and tedious.  I would like to suggest that the Scheduled Reports Manager interface be modified so that - no matter how many reports are shown on the screen -- botht the report names and the edit options can be seen without scrolling.

 

Thank you.
