How Reports Work

Reports extract the projects information and transform them into HTML, WORD or PDF documents. By default the system will create HTML documents but you can choose the format using drop down buttons. 

Reports work either on all data in the project or a user selected sub-set, for example you can select to create a report which contains only the user requirements, a subfolder you created inside the Requirements folder. 

This selection can be stored on your PC by checking "Remember Selection".

After you selected the input and clicked on "Create" the report will be created and automatically downloaded and displayed (if this does not happen check your browser settings). For example:

Reports show item references as hyperlinks into the project. This is very useful if you use the report to analyze the project and you want to fix the errors immediately. For example in the extract below you can click on any requirement and directly edit it in the browser.
