Manage report layout - basics

You can manage your report layout through the website. Go to 'report layout':


Online account: report layout

1. Layout name and settings

In the first two sections of this report layout (Layout Name and Layout Settings) you can chose the name for this layout and define some settings (like picture size, font type, font color, display for inherited observations, etc.).
An important setting is the 'Template' setting, as this defines the structure of the observation list in the reports. Feel free to play with this setting and check out how your reports look.
Note: inherited observations are observations that were cloned when starting from the previous report.

2. Report logo and general texts

In the section 'Report logo and texts' you can insert your logo and manage all standard text that will appear on your reports (like header, footer, company info, section titles, column titles, general conditions, ...):

  • Logo and company information: upload your logo and this will be shown on the left top in your reports. Enter your company information and this will be shown on the right top in your reports:

  • Report title: you can make use of variables here. Variables are always placed between square brackets. Using variables means that the corresponding values (ex. project number, project description, report date) will be filled in automatically so you don't need to enter this manually every time (when editing a report or sending a mail). 'Report [report_number]' means that for every field report created the report title will be 'Report' followed by the 'Report Number'. The report number is composed of the Project Number of this project and a sequence number for the reports. Example: for the third report of project 123, the report number will be 123-3.

  • Next we have the first of three free text blocks: more info on working with free text blocks can be found here.
  • Contacts table: This is the table listing all the contacts for the project together with indication who was present on the job site and to whom the report has been sent. This last column (to whom it has been sent) is filled in when the report is being sent with ArchiSnapper. Here in the report layout we can manage the title for this section and also the column headers of this table.

If you're not using this functionality, then this section will not be displayed in your reports. Here again we can manage the title for this section and also the column headers of this table.
