    1. Under Configure»Result Processing, enable the Report plugin and click Options... to change the file type to HTML.
    2. Run the test sequence you want to send a report for. You can run tests sequentially or in parallel. TestStand automatically creates all necessary tags to monitor values for each instance of the test sequence. You can view these tags in NI SystemLink Web Application under Tag Viewer.
    3. In NI SystemLink Web Application, click the test in Test Monitor.
    4. Click Download Attachments to download the test report.
