Browser settings

You don't need to download or install anything to use XLReporting. You only need an internet connection and a modern web browser with Javascript enabled.

✭ Tips:

Supported browsers

XLReporting uses the latest technologies (HTML5/CSS3) and works on any modern web browser such as Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Opera, Edge. Personally, we prefer Chrome because it delivers the best performance, but we leave the choice to you. Please note that Internet Explorer is not supported, as it has known weaknesses in SSL security and (as of 2022) is no longer supported by Microsoft. Safari version 8 and older is also no longer supported.

Optimal settings

To work efficiently with XLReporting, please note that:

  • Your computer needs a fast internet connection
  • Your screen is at least 1024px wide
  • Your computer needs at least 2Gb memory
  • Your web browser needs javascript enabled
  • Your web browser has not disabled page caching

Mobiles (smart phones and tablets)

XLReporting can be used on mobile devices with at least 550px screen width (either in portrait or landscape mode). For optimal use, we recommend at least 720px screen width. Please note that:

  • Your mobile device needs to have an internet connection
  • Your mobile device needs at least 2Gb memory
  • Your mobile device needs javascript enabled
  • XLReporting is touch & swipe sensitive on mobile devices
  • Certain Define functions are not fully visible under 720px screen width
  • Moving widgets on the dashboard is disabled for usability reasons

Scrolling in Chrome on Mac (OSX)

XLReporting enables you to scroll horizontally and vertically through large reports and dashboards. If you use Chrome on a Mac (OSX) you might find it frustrating that whenever you scroll horizontally, Chrome navigates back and forward between your visited pages. The solution is easy:

  1. Go to System Preferences
  2. Go to Trackpad or Mouse (dependent on what you are using)
  3. Go to the tab More gestures
  4. Unselect Swipe between pages
