InetSoft Reporting Software - Report Toolbar Options

InetSoft's robust reporting software provides users with a wide set of report toolbar options for high level customization and distribution options. View the information below to learn more about the Style Intelligence solution.

Administrators can hide and unhide particular buttons on the web-based report toolbar. The order of the toolbar buttons can be changed using the up and down arrow keys. Be sure to click on the 'Apply' button to save the changes.

Security Based Toolbar Buttons

Certain toolbar options (buttons) will be automatically displayed/hidden based on user privileges. The 'Save', 'Ad Hoc', and the 'Data Worksheet'(only for Style Intelligence) are examples of such buttons.

'Save': Displayed only if the user has 'write' permissions on the report template. Permits the user to modify the original template.

'Ad Hoc': Displayed if the user has 'adhoc' permissions.

Note: The 'Save As' button enables users to save a copy of the report in any folder to which they have 'write' permissions. A user cannot save over any existing report template without 'write' permissions on that template.

The button icons on the web viewer can be changed if you select 'Presentation' > 'DHTML' > 'Toolbar Icon' from the navigation tree under the Server tab. A custom button set can be specified to use non-default icons. The field for the 'Custom Button Set' must refer to the absolute path of the directory that contains the custom Icons. Instead of using an absolute path, it is possible to specify an environment variable such as 'sree.home'. For example, the field value for 'Custom Button Set' can be set to $(sree.home)/myIcons/. When custom buttons are used, they can be prevented from showing up on individual replets by setting a string initialization parameter, use.custom.actions, to 'false'.

InetSoft Viewpoint

“Generally speaking, agile business intelligence is a key area where real-time reporting, performance dashboards using virtual data marts, either instead of, or as a way of extending the enterprise data warehouse, or in fact, to create a virtual data warehouse. These are common goals. We are talking about orders of magnitudes in better speed, flexibility and lower costs in terms of building those options compared to traditional methods.

We are not going to completely replace the need for certain data mining requirements. You will still want that, but a lot of work can be accomplished with much less money. And competitive and social BI, this is gaining popularity. Typical traditional data integration tools are simply not capable of dealing with that. When it comes to customer focus, providing a 360 degree view of the customer and the feeding that into self-service portal, is another challenge for traditional BI tools.” Mark Flaherty, Chief Marketing Officer
