The ROESServer and the ROES Client generate reports. This tab lets you make use of the Client report or generate as many other reports as you wish at the ROESServer. All ROESServer reports, under this tab, are created at the time the order is processed and may be printed or emailed if you wish..
Reports - Reports defined on this screen are generated at the time of order processing. If you want to create one at a specific time during production, you can use the Reports Printer found under the Printing Tab.
Reports Configuration - Mouse over the different fields of the screen below for descriptions of each fields use.
Report Name: - You can give a workstation a custom name. The default name will be the IP address of the computer the workstation is running on.
Template: - This is the path to the Report Template used to generate this report. Use this link to download a zip file with sample reports.
Output to: - This is the path to the folder to send the created report to. Typically this is accomplished with a string of Macros: [REPORTS_DIR]/[LAB_ORDER_ID]/[LAB_ORDER_ID]_[REPORT_TEMPLATE_NAME] which will send the report to the reports directory called out under the 'Order Directories' tab and then placed in a folder named for the Lab Assigned Order Number and name the report file with the Lab Assigned Order Number and the name of the report template file name that was used to create the report. But you can send a report to any location you wish to send it.
