7 Working with the Sample Report Package

Use report packages to create reports quickly and easily. Narrative Reporting includes three sample report packages (a Word-based sample report package, a PowerPoint-based sample report package and a PDF-based sample report package) to help you learn to use the product. Use the sample report packages to get familiar with report package functionality by performing these tasks:

  • Navigate to the report center to learn about doclets and sections.

  • Edit the report package to enable development phases, set timelines, and assign users.

  • Assign authors to doclets.

  • Edit the style sample file to see how it affects the look and feel of the report.

  • Work the report package through the three phases of development, from starting the author phase to signing off on the report package.

Note:

An administrator must extract the sample report package and assign access to you before you can view it. See Installing Samples.
