SAM Reports allow users to edit and communicate with records on the report.
Click Options to view actions. Report Builder (Edit this Report) and Bulk Email (Send Bulk Email & Create Email Distribution List) are modules which may not be available in your SAM.
View Report Configuration
This provides you with information on how the report was put together. This shows the Entities aka, Tables shown on the report, the Default Filters and the Default Sorting that's applied. This is how the Report is presented when by default. This helps you compare apples to apples when reviewing multiple reports.
"Must be In Results" shown next to an entity/table will change the results of the table. All records shown on the report MUST also have a record from the additional table shown. In this example, Children are shown and they must have a current placement record, otherwise the child's record will not be shown on the report.
This takes you to a Print Preview of the report. Depending on your browser, the options will be different. You will be able to specify the printer, layout, margins and other printing options from here.
Send Bulk Email
Users can send an email to multiple records at one time through Reports. Once your report displays the records you want to communicate with click Options > Send Bulk Email. This option is only available with the Bulk Email module enabled.
Create Email Distribution List
This feature creates a list of email recipients from your report based upon your selections from the prompts. This list of recipients can be used to send a bulk email without having to return to the report. This list is NOT updated dynamically like a report. Once the distribution list is created, those records remain on the list until modified in the distribution list section.
