Creating an OWLS Report


The Online Work/Leave System (OWLS) allows you to run a simple report for active records in your unit. 

An OWLS report will allow you to do the following:

Currently, the report feature reflects completed and submitted calendar months. When selecting a particular month, the list of names will reflect only those active employee records that have been submitted through that month.

For example, if you are running a report for June, and an employee’s record is updated only through April, that employee’s name will not appear in the report.

All report data is generated on a nightly basis. Any changes made to an OWLS record will not be reflected in the report until the next day.


To run a report, take the following steps:

1. From the OWLS log in page, click on "OWLS Report."

2. Select an appropriate PUC. 3. Select the desired month and year. 4. Select how the results will be ordered. 5. Select the report format. 6. Click "Run Report."

If you choose to create the report in HTML, the report will open in a browser window.

If you choose to create the report in EXCEL, a “File Download – Security Warning” should appear that asks, “Do you want to open or save this file?” Clicking “Open” will open an EXCEL file. Clicking “Save” will allow you to save the report to your computer.

Be aware that the OWLS report will generate a lengthy document. You will have to scroll to the right in order to view all of the columns.
