Helpful Tips in Reporter Guide


The Maintenance Connection Reporter Guide is used extensively to obtain instructions for running reports, modifying report criteria or establishing report setup. The guide also includes numerous helpful tips for using the more complex features of the Reporter.

Since the Online Reporter Guide is not accessible from within the Report Setup or Report Preview Windows, it is recommended that you open the Online Reporter Guide while in the Report Lookup.  The guide will open in a separate browser window that you can keep open while you proceed to modify or run your reports.  This window can then be accessed whenever assistance is required.

To open the Online Reporter Guide, click the help icon to the right of the search field in the Report Lookup (you can also select Reporter Guide from the Help menu if the Reporter has not yet been opened):

You can use the TOC and Search feature to quickly obtain help. Following are some quick examples of useful information/tips found in the guide:
