About Preset Cover Pages & Header Footer Styles

The New Submittal & Advantage Reports tool has cover pages and preset header and footer styles for submittals and reports. The system comes with two preset cover pages. You can create and update additional cover pages to suit your submittal requirements in the Report Management window.

Header and footer styles are unchangeable and an available feature in both the Submittal window and the Reports window. Report header styles vary by report. Examples of report header styles can be found in report parameters articles in the Reports section of the help center. Submittal header and footer styles are detailed in this article.

*Note: The report parameters articles are a series of articles detailing the parameters of each reports. Each article covers one report and the series is currently a work in process. You can find the completed report parameter articles in the Reports section of our help center.
