  • Add parameters for the report: Parameters can be added to the reports to print only selected employees, e.g. sort employee per department or print employees for selected branches.
  • Use Excel functions to create customised reports: Once the report has been run, the data will be available in MS Excel. You are able to use MS Excel functions to create standard MS Excel spreadsheets.
  • Use pivot tables in MS Excel: Pivot table reports are an MS Excel automated function that allow you to organise and summarise your data into a table format that makes sense and is easy to understand.
  • Create and link a template: Once the data in MS Excel is in the required format you can link the spreadsheet as a template. When the report is run the data will automatically be displayed in the linked template format.
