Not us. We know you want the ability to customize your reports. To convey information from Promiso in the most meaningful way. To base your decisions on that information. That's why reporting influences almost every decision we make about our software.
Report Designer is a complement to Promiso, our workload measurement program. If your needs are more demanding than can be satisfied with Promiso's built-in reports, Report Designer gives you the tools you need to create reports that go above and beyond. You simply drag objects onto the Report Designer workspace and drop them where you want them to appear on the final report. There are objects for every bit of data stored in Promiso, so if it has been recorded it can be reported, right where you place it. Other objects allow you to place text, perform math, apply statistical functions, insert a counter, add a title or page number, draw lines; everything you need to design professional reports.
