TEMPLATES
Template Overview




A template is the report format that is used by the report manager to publish
the reports. All templates are created in Excel
All the templates are report specific and templates need to be defined for
each and every report the user has.
Pre-seeded template called ‘Generic FSG Template’ can be used with any
report, however, cannot be modified
When creating a new template or editing an existing template you can make
the following changes:
–
–
–
–
–
–
–
–
–
Add and remove report elements.
Change the location of report elements on the page.
Modify row and column sizes.
Use standard Excel font formatting such as bold. Default formatting is provided.
Insert text that remains static in the report.
Add images. Supported image files are png, gif, jpg, and bmp
Add background watermark images
Include hyperlinks
Add data values. Data values are report objects that link to XML elements of the report
output file and the values are obtained during the publishing process.
– Move columns

schedule to ensure items are archived and purged on a regular basis.
