Report Data Highlighting

InetSoft's reporting software allows users to highlight data thereby facilitating the communication of the most important information. View the example below to learn more about the Style Intelligence solution.

It is very natural for an author to distinguish or highlight information that is of key importance to a reader. Moreover, readers often find it useful to add highlights to information that they need to recognize or access quickly.

Similarly, when you create reports, you will often need to highlight important data. For example, a Sales Manager reading a report on sales and profit might appreciate the states providing maximum profit to be highlighted for quick analysis.

Style Intelligence provides the ‘Highlight’ (conditional formatting) function as a convenient means to make important data more noticeable.
