Illuminate provides blank templates / report starters to help you get started with the BI Tool.
All BI Tool reports should start from these blank templates/report starters.
These templates take care of numerous properties & settings that have to be in place in order for the report to work in Illuminate.
The templates also provide:
- A Title Band that mirrors Illuminate's pre-built reports.
- A Selected Filters section that will display any filters that a user selects on the actual report.
This is critical to ensure the data in your reports is not misinterpreted and misused when reports are printed or downloaded.)
- A page footer that will display the name of the user who generates the report, and the date & time the report is generated.
Since BI Tool reports are dynamic and respect the user's access to student data, knowing who generated the report and when it was generated is essential for understanding what the report is showing.
- A page footer that displays "Page x of y".
Without this, users tend to not look past the first page of your report.
Please be sure to install the Illuminate Font Set so the templates will display correctly.
