Note: The linking options described on this page are automatically available in all reports and require no action to be added to any report.
The optional link column provides a direct link to the item being reported on, e.g. Task item etc. If it is a project site, this means the Project Statement item associated with the project site. You can control how this link behaves. The default setting for most reports is for the item to open in a dialog, this means you can edit list items on other sites from a central location.
The available options include:
Note: If you want to use BrightWork Reporter to navigate directly to an item when Dialog is enabled, right-click on it and select one of the Open in...options.
Note: IE9+ and other up-to-date browsers will open a new tab. IE8 will open a new window.
The Project Link columns (text or icon) make reporting on items in a Projects Tracker list easier as the column can discriminate between projects in the Projects Tracker list and projects that have their own site. The column is available either as a text link, called Project Link or as an icon, called Project Link Icon.
If the project is one that has its own site, clicking the link opens the project site. If the project is in a Projects Tracker list, clicking the link opens the Project Statement according to 'Open the Link in a' setting at the bottom of the Column Settings section on the Reporter Settings page. (Tip: Use Ctrl-click to force either type to open in a new browser tab).
Note: For Project Link text columns, if it links to a Project Tracker item, the Project ID from the Project Statement is used; if it links to a Project Site, the site Title is used.
Site Name links directly to the home page of the site the item is in. You can control the caption for the column in the Rendering and Performance section on the Reporter settings page. Site Name uses the site Title property for the text.
List Name links directly to the default view of the list the item is in. You can control the caption for the column in the Rendering and Performance section on the Reporter settings page.
