    Enhanced basic reporting

    • Customized report skins: Customize your Basic Reports easily and quickly by inserting logo and footer images from your local machines and defining the header and footer text, and text color. This customization affects all existing reports and new reports that you create.
      For more information, see Skin. 
       
    • Structured layout of reports: Define the layout for charts and tables in reports for system-specific analyses or models that contain data for a single system or business driver and also for summary charts of an overview analysis or model that contain data for more than one system or business driver.
      For more information see Creating reports and Editing reports
      . 
    • Domain-level reporting: Combine different analyses and models from the same, or different domains, into a single Composite Basic Report. This report makes it easier and quicker to analyze domain-based content.
      For more information, see Creating reports. 
    • Enhanced file name parameters for basic reports: Configure file names for basic reports to include the time stamp of when the report was generated, and also include the time stamp in the subject line when you distribute the report by email, in the edit mode. This feature makes it easier to differentiate and save the reports locally without having to rename them, especially for reports that are sent several times a day.
      For more information, see Editing reports.
    • Detailed report file size information before downloading: Use tooltips to view the file size of reports before downloading them. For larger-sized reports, this feature can help you quickly determine whether you want to download the report immediately or at a later time.
      For more information, see Reports.
