Report Settings


The Report Settings interface allows the user to change basic information as well as setup the components of the report. These details will persist throughout the report.

Ensuring all components are set up correctly prior to starting work on the report is highly encouraged.

Note: Making changes to components will reset the Manage PS&R Imports stage if it has already been completed.
