In the report designer, each report part has an associated menu that can be accessed by hovering over the report part near the top. The menu looks like what is displayed below:
Preview section can be shown or hidden by tick or untick on Show Preview section in Configuration Mode check box in Setting > Data Setup > Advanced Settings > Other tab, see Update Others Settings for more details.
Collapsing the preview mode will suspend database calls until the user expands it or flips the tile
The report part menu can also be accessed by right clicking on the report part to bring up the same offered options.
Menu Options in Report Designer¶
Below is a list of the available options:
Full Screen – Takes the report part into a full screen mode effectively hiding the Filter tab, but offering more room for design or viewing purposes.
Copy – Creates an identical copy of a report part. Makes it easier to add additional report parts with the same data structure and format to be edited quickly.
Switch to Configuration/Preview Mode – The method of switching from previewing a report part in the design real estate of the report and the actual underlying configuration of the report part itself. This flipping mechanism can also be found on the Dashboard module of Izenda as each report part can be individually flipped and manipulated through this same functionality.
Delete – Removes a report part from the report. This will fully remove the report part from the definition of the report. There is no way to undo this action.
