On the Diligent ESG Author landing page, you are presented with a list of available reports to open. If you are an Administrator, you can also see report settings and an option to create a new custom report. 

Note: Diligent ESG Author administrators may restrict the reports that are visible to each user such that only the relevant reports are accessible to them.

  1. In Diligent ESG Author, select Open.
  2. In the Select reporting year section, select the year that you want to open a report from, such as FY2022.
  3. In the Select Report Type section, select the type of report that you want to open, such as Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI) or Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) reports.
  4. In the Select Report section, select the report that you want to open. After you open a report, on the left-hand side of the screen, the tree view structure populates with the report sections.
  5. From the tree view, to access a section, select the desired section. You can have permission to either view only or edit a section. The section will then appear on screen.

If you are an administrator, you can add new sections and configure them for all other users. For further information, go to Configuring corporate report sections.

If you are a contributor, you can add text, tables, images, and other items to a section. For further information, go to Adding content to corporate reports.
