Question
How do you make a report a link so that users can just click and view? A URL that a customer can go to view a specific report.

Answer
As long as you have the GUID values for the original report and the GUID for the saved report, you can call the report as http://altirisNS/altiris/ns/admin/reports/report_summary.aspx?GUID=%originalReportGUID%&SavedGUID=%savedReportGUID%

Example:
http://servername.domain.com/Altiris/NS/Admin/Reports/report_summary.aspx?Guid=f158d8d1-b42b-47a5-f23a-fd21c637b59a&SavedGuid=95cc6847-938c-4514-bb42-562bf357acc7

Also you can create a Notification Policy that sends the link to the Report or you can add the %Results% parameter in the email body so the results of that report appears in the email body. See the Notification Server Documentation for further instructions of how to setup a Notification Policy.
