This page will guide you through the Reports section of Kiuwan Governance.
Kiuwan Governance provides a predefined, default PDF report, generated by selecting the PDF option in the Summary section.
If you need to create a specific report to suit your needs, you can use the custom Report function in Governance > Reports. .
- A Kiuwan Report is created by selecting its visual components from a widget library.
- Once the report is created, it's available to all users. You will be able to modify any report at any time.
- Any user of your account can then generate (or execute) the report, selecting a date period. The report will be populated with data within the selected date range.
Only users granted with the Manage reports privilege can create a custom report.
Once created, any user can generate the report.
A Report is composed of widgets. A widget is a graphical element that displays information.
To create a Report, select the widgets from Kiuwan Widgets Library. Every widget has configuration options that you will set to adapt the widget to your desired functionality.
The selection and configuration of the widgets will define the content of your report, i.e. what information will be included and how will be displayed in the generated report.
Once the report is created, it is generally available to the rest of the users. You can modify the report at any time.
Structure of Reports
Kiuwan Reports are structured as follows:
1. Report First-Page
This 1st page contains the Title of the report, the Account Name (i.e. the descriptive name of the Kiuwan account, usually it’s the Company name) and the generation report date.
2. Table of Contents
The Table of Contents (TOC) shows the different sections of the Report. (As you will see later, you can decide whether a section appears or not in the TOC.)
3. Pages with designed Widgets
Every selected widget will be presented as a page of the report. At the time of report creation, you decide exactly what information will be included in the widget.
