Quick Reports provide a quick mechanism to create and run simple reports based on SQL queries and user input. Quick Reports can be created to display any information about the company including gross sales by customer, orders entered by sales representative, orders entered for a customer, etc.
Users can view reports via the Quick Reports Viewer (Modules > Quick Reports). Quick Reports can also be created and configured to be viewed from a Quick Report tab on the Customer or Vendor Cards, in Inventory Lookup, or on Sales Documents. Security must be enabled – refer to the SalesPad Security Settings document for information on individual Quick Reports security settings.
To access the Quick Reports module, Quick Reports must be enabled in the Security Editor (Modules > Security).
Set the Misc sub-settings:
- Quick Reports Path – Define the location where Quick Reports files are stored (should be a shared network path)
- Show Path – Set to True to show the Reports path on the bottom of the Quick Reports screen
- Enable Change Button – Set to True to allow users to edit the Reports path from the Quick Reports screen
Note: Save any changes. You must log out and back in for security changes to take effect.
