Custom Reports

You can create customized project reports in Rich Text Format (RTF) format that contain the project name, dynamic table of contents, page headers and footers with the report title and page numbers, the report creator's name, and the date and time the report is generated. Additionally, reports include customizable information about requirements and visualizations. For example, images from screen actions, templates, simulation diagrams, and scenario diagrams are included in the appropriate areas of a project report when you generate the report.

Reports opened in text processors with fewer features, like WordPad, do not support the same formatting features, including tables of contents and displaying images.

information is provided depending on the current selections in the list of items to include in the project report. The following options are available in the Reporting dialog box.
