Step 2:  Add a new element called <ONDEMANDREPORTPATHS> after the <SCHEDULEDREPORTPATHS> element. The <ONDEMANDREPORTPATHS> element must be on the same level in the XML hierarchy as the <SCHEDULEDREPORTPATHS> element.

Step 3:  In the <ONDEMANDREPORTPATHS> element, add an element for the custom folder you want to create. The element notation is the same as for adding a custom static folder. The example below will place the published report in a subfolder of C:\inetpub\wwwroot\AFWeb\Output\OnDemand\Source called MyFolder.

Step 4:  Save the file in its current location.

 

Step 5:  Select the newly created subfolder when publishing either a report or trend. Any custom folders you create will appear in the publishing dialog box for Historian Client Trend and Workbook. The folder structure in the publishing dialog box will appear flat, but the reports will be published to the hierarchy that you have created.
