A Master is a template which may be used as a Report’s background. Masters in Report work very much like themes in PowerPoint or Google Slides. Only Widgets Image, Shape and Text are available during the creation of a Master.

Creating a Master

To create a Master:

  • Hit the “Display” tab at the Page level Reeport - Edit and Create a Master - Display tab
  • Hit “Select a master” and click on “Add one” to create a new one
  • You will then be in front of a blank Page where you can use Shape, Image and Text Widgets
  • Once finished, you can go back to your Page

Note that Text Widgets can be dynamic by using variables, for example to define titles, dates and indexes.
