  1. Data Source Name: this field will be displayed in the Data Sources list.

  2. URL: the URL where the SharePoint site is located.

  3. Advanced Settings: these are optional settings, and they include:

    • Authentication Method: the authentication method must match the SharePoint site’s method. If you don’t know which one to choose, ask your Help Desk or IT Manager.

    • User-Agent. The ReportPlus user agent. If empty, the standard agent is used.

    • Timeout (sec). This will let you configure the amount of time (in seconds) that ReportPlus will try to connect using a network. If there’s no response within this time, the application will stop trying and give a Connection timeout error.

  4. Account: after clicking Next, a new dialog will be displayed. You can either enter new credentials for SharePoint or select existing ones if applicable.
