The administration options allow you to manage various aspects of Yellowfin, such as sessions, schedules, dashboards, and licences. They also allow you to check system information, which can be useful for troubleshooting and support issues.

Schedule Management

View and delete reporting schedules that have been set up by users.

See Schedule Management for more information.

Licence Details

This lets you update your licence and view your current licence parameters. Click on the Licence Details link in Administration.

You should now be able to see both your licence and usage details.
