Advanced Interactive Reporting

  • Sharon Kennedy

Abstract

Data. It is all about the data. There are usually only a few ways to get data into a system (multi-page wizard, single-page edit, or tabular form) but there are endless ways that your users will want to get their data out. It used to be that we would need to code a report for every way that our users would want to slice-and-dice the data, maintaining them forever, adding in “just one more column . . .” With the introduction of Interactive Reports, developers can put together reports that contain every data point relating to a topic, and then end users can customize them to their needs, mitigating the need for developer intervention. That said, there are still good reports and not so good reports. The key is not just including all the data points, but including them in ways that are useful and that meet your user’s needs.
