The Web Report Designer allows you to create a number of reports and print templates to be used with data from your Method account.
Despite its name, the Web Report Designer is not limited to creating just report templates – you can also build invoices, estimates, work orders, charts, graphs and all sorts of other templates you use frequently in your Method environment.
In the below image, the printed invoice was created using the Web Report Designer to design an overall template to be applied to all invoice printouts.
Two Versions of Report Designer
Note that there are two versions of the Report Designer. The Web Report Designer is newer and reports are created directly in the web browser. Below is an image of the Web Report Designer in the browser.
The old Report Designer is only available for Windows. If possible, you should use the Web Report Designer, since the older Report Designer is deprecated.
This series of articles will help you learn how to use the newer Web Report Designer, and will always be referred to as the Web Report Designer.
If you wish to learn more about the older, deprecated Report Designer, please refer to the branch within our help center.
