Vantage Adds the Ability to Bulk Move Cost Reports and Folders

Vantage announces the ability to move Cost Reports and folders in bulk. In addition, customers can now “star” (i.e., save resources to the Starred by Me screen) Cost Reports and folders in bulk.

Previously, customers were only able to individually move and star resources. This task was very tedious, especially for customers who have very large cost reporting structures. For example, a customer may separate Cost Reports by team across different folders. With this feature, if a new team becomes responsible for the reports in one folder, customers can transfer all the relevant reports to the other team’s designated folder, ensuring efficient movement of resources within Vantage.

This feature is now available to all customers. To get started, navigate to the Cost Reporting screen. A checkbox is displayed next to each resource. Options to move or star selected resources are displayed at the top of the list. For more information about how to create and use these resources, see the Cost Reports and folders documentation.
