About Report Parameters

Report parameters customize the report format and certain text fields such as header notes and footer notes. Comsense's default report settings streamline report parameters but still maintain flexibility.

Default report settings auto-populate the report parameter fields in the Reports window. You can set or update default report 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.
