It is desirable to group reports in categories and perform operations at group level. This becomes necessity for large number of reports belonging to simillar category. For example, one may have 50 different reports with same schedule, same repository destination etc. It would be desirable to select category and perform CRUD operations in one operations affecting all 50 reports. This may also need design of new resources so updating referred resources would be more effective than individual report underlying the category.

This request has a variety of implications.

A schedule profile repository object would need to be created, which had all the schedule information without report specific values. Then you could schedule a report by selecting an existing schedule profile or create a new profile.

In the Quartz release, there will be a search capability, based on a text search of name, label and description. Search results will be categorized by object type. It would be good to be able to tag repository objects with arbitrary values as a way of categorizing them, and extend search to include searches on tags.

What group operations can be performed will vary according to object type.
