Reporting: Working with widgets

Top  Previous  Next

The Principal Toolbox supports a variety of ways to present data, ranging from on screen lists, to on screen visuals, to tailor made reports in Excel or Word.


Widgets are available in many locations in the Principal Toolbox and can be used to present data directly, without having to run a report or opening a view. Widgets are easy to configure and refresh automatically. Widgets can be used for reports, but can also support specific processes and can be developed specifically for customers.
