Application Improvements: Changes in the Reports Module and Creating PDF and Excel Files from the Reports Module
There have been a number of improvements in the reports module and being able to create PDF and excel reports from the reports module.
A User can now generate a Report and run a filter or rank and these settings are retained in the PD, or Excel. The example her shows a 40m sprint report sorted by Rank
Previously when you ran a report on your reports page and set it to rank by player name or a specific score, the pdf generated would simply export the date by date of entry. Now the pdf and excel retain the sorting you have set up in your report. The image here shows that 40m sprint report is being sorted by 40 time rank.
The Excel of the 40m Report
A PDF of the 40m sprint report retains the same sorting parameters
The Entered By and About Columns in Reports are now ONLY showing as 60 pixels wide, and do not wrap and take up 2 lines
Now Each Report that you Save must on the reports page must have a unique name. You cannot name the name of an existing report.
If you try and save a new report that has the same name of an existing report, you will receive the following error message
This is the error message that will show if you try and save a report with the same name as an existing report. This occurred because a report was saved with the name 10m less than 1.8 and that report name was already saved (as shown in the image in the step above).
N.B. You do not want to tick Prevent this page from creating additional dialog's.
