About Report Parameters

Report parameters customize the report format and certain text fields such as header notes and footer notes. Comsense's reporting features streamline report parameters but still maintain flexibility. These features include:

Report default settings auto-populate the report parameter fields in the Reports window. You can set report default settings in the Report Management window under the report settings. Any reports in a submittal use the report defaults from the Report Management window. You do not need to use the preset report defaults on each report you generate. You can update the pre-populated fields at the time of report generation.

Key fields auto-populate parameter fields using system data and can only be used in text fields. You can use Key Fields as report defaults or enter them at the time of report generation.
