Report builder

Bar chart

The report builder is the biggest development in LG Inform. It allows registered users to create maps, charts, text or tables using any metrics that are held in the LG Inform and combine these into a report in very much the same manner as you would create a Word report. You have greater flexibility than the Prototype and can manipulate the data and layout in numerous ways: moving content, resizing chart and adding corporate styles and logos.
 

We would encourage you to experiment with building your own reports to see the full functionality on offer. To get you started we have created a ‘how to’ guide for the report builder and an FAQ section.
