- E.g. contents, formatting, report securities (role accessibility) etc.
- Division address settings
- Submittal templates
The table below describes each setting type and location in the Report Management window.

Copying Report Management Settings
*Note: Copying division report management settings OVERWRITES the settings of the Copy to division.
Copying report management settings copies the selected settings from one division to another. Copying OVERWRITES the settings of the Copy To division. The copy settings function is flexible by allowing you to copy settings for:
- A single report
- A report category
- All reports from an entire division
- One or more of the setting types from Table 1
Finding the Copy From Division
In the Reports Management window, Find the division to copy from and Open the Copy Settings window from the appropriate location.
Opening the Copy Settings Window
The Copy Settings window can open from three different location types. Each location type determines the scope of the copy from and copy to location. You can open the Copy Settings window from:
- Division header: copies report settings from all reports under the division
- Report category: copies the report settings from all reports under the report category
- Specific report: copies the report settings from the specific report
In the Report Management Navigation pane, Right-click on the division header, category header, or specific report and Click Copy Settings.
Selecting the Copy Settings & Copy To Division
*Note: Address and submittal template settings can only be copied if you are copying from the division header.
Copying settings cannot be undone. Before selecting the copy settings and copy to division(s), always review the copy from division to ensure it is correct.
In the Copy Settings window:
- Uncheck any report management settings you do not want to copy from Table 1
- Select the Copy To Division(s) Using the Selection Tool
- Click OK
All specified report settings will copy from the Copy From division to the Copy To division.
