Web Report Studio Logi Report Server v17.1
Logi Report provides the web reporting solution for faster and simpler design and creation of reports using the new interactive viewer called Web Report Studio. This topic describes the main functionalities of Web Report Studio: the responsive ability to different window sizes, the business views that you use to create web reports, the quick and traditional ways of creating web reports, and View Mode and Edit Mode.
Web Report Studio provides a much nicer end user experience with many powerful features for creating and interfacing with reports. It also enables exporting the reports to all supported output formats. Furthermore, Web Report Studio is able to be responsive to any size of browsers on any mobile devices. It renders the same report differently depending on the device or screen size without you having to manually resize the report. While for mobile devices using iOS, in order to run reports on the mobile browser, you need to make sure the iOS version is up to the latest.
The data sources that you can use to create web reports are business views, which can provide interactive information. Interactive information empowers you to slice and dice your business data, to dynamically change your view of data, and to analyze the data to glean useful business information. In short, interactive information enables you to customize your view of business information, extending the "life" of the report by allowing you to easily sort, navigate, and filter data. This wide range of functionality, including the ability to drill down on data, enables you to quickly derive value from your business intelligence data.
Logi Report Server stores web reports that you published from Logi Report Designer or created in Web Report Studio, in the server resource system. Web reports follow the server resource and version management rules such as archive policy and permission setting. Designer supports creating, opening, and editing of web reports as well.
Web Report Studio provides two ways of creating and working with web reports: traditional way and quick start way. In the traditional way, you create reports using the Web Report Wizard which enables creating complex reports with multiple components in a tabular style layout, and also enables company logo and titles to be placed on the top of the page for more formal presentation. In the quick start way, you create a table report quickly based on the data fields that you selected in a business view. When you installed Logi Report Server newly, by default it is the quick start way. When you upgraded Server from an earlier version that does not support the quick way, it is the traditional way by default. You can switch between the two ways using either of the following methods:
- In the server profile, select the Yes check box for the Use Wizard for Web Report Studio option if you prefer the traditional way. Otherwise clear Yes.
- In Web Report Studio, select Menu > Edit > Use Wizard to use the traditional way, or clear Use Wizard to use the quick start way.
Web Report Studio has two modes: View Mode and Edit Mode. View Mode provides viewing-oriented functions only, and Edit Mode provides additional editing and analytic functions. When you access Web Report Studio by creating new web reports, you are in the Edit Mode by default; when accessing by running existing web reports, which mode is applied depends on the way you use to run the reports. You can switch between the two modes using the mode drop-down list on the toolbar if it is available.
