Report Parameters

In this document, we will look at how you can use various report definition parameters to change the output of your reports.  Each parameter will be listed, along with an explanation of how each setting affects the output; as well as how these settings work with individual report related settings in each product, each package, and other parameters.


To start you will need use the reports tab of SI5.  This is the only place you can modify report definitions and their parameters.


Each report contains several Report Definitions.  These vary by report but are generally represented as follows:

By Category, By Location, By Location By Category, By Zone, By Location By Zone and By Zone By Location.


In this example we will use the standard proposal and the “By Location” definition. To edit this definition right click and choose “edit report definition”.


You should now see a Report Definition window.  This window allows you change the grouping of the definition and the parameter criteria.  

Here you’ll just need to click on the Parameters Tab.


As you can see, there are quite a few options available here that will help you customize the output of a report.


 Now we will break down what each of these options do, and show you an example of how the output looks.
