The Report Center Tools

The Connected Business' Reports Center is built to be fully customizable. Every report you can come up with it can be personalized with a set of built-in tools. From these set of tools you can design any type of report; include pivot grids and charts, layout colored panels and place additional data fields from your selected data source.

These are the available tool palettes inside the Report Designer form and you can readily use them while designing your custom report. All you need first to do is select a report from the Report Explorer and click Edit from the menu options.
