Elements to creating a report

On each Edit section there is some Text to assist with the basic procedure for creating a report

Once Selected the Help Text appears

Drag and Drop

  1. Open an Entity to view the Data Fields
  2. Select a Data Field by Selecting and dragging to the required column
  3. Drop it in. If other Data Field/s are already present, it can be dropped in at a certain level

Delete a Data Field

If the wrong Data Field is brought across, simply drag the Field into white space and “let it go” to delete it from any Column where it is no longer required

It is not possible to drag across Columns. If a Data Field is to be taken from one column and added to another, drop that Data Field out and reselect it from the Entities/Data Fields Column to bring it into the correct column
