Report Properties

1.Output Formats

Upon opening the report, in the top left corner, find the run icon (left corner)  and generate the report. The desired format can be selected from the options below, such as PDF, Excel, CSV, etc.…

  • We recommend “HTML” or “Excel Data”. “Excel” will keep the formatting and may hinder data manipulations you may wish to perform.
  • “HTML” paginates results, whereas “Excel Data” does not. Therefore, the latter may take more time to run

2.Report Prompts

Most of the reports will have a prompt page before accessing the content of the report. The general ones are the Content language (1) and the Environment (2) where the data is located. Other Prompt could be asking for the type of objects, the process, or other EPC-related elements.

6. Report Views

A report view shares the same report specification as the source report but has different properties such as prompt values and run options. Creating a report view does not change the original report.

A report view allows you to modify a report to your preferences while not affecting the parent report and by inheriting updates made to it.
