Creating New Reports

An incident owner or incident editor can create new reports that contain a variety of decision and/or incident content that a user selects. WFDSS offers three types of reports for users to create:

Once a report is created, it is saved to the Reports List where it can be accessed for editing and eventually publishing. Once published, report content is permanently locked and can be downloaded and printed. Report content that contains content not yet published in a decision can be be downloaded as a draft .PDF for viewing or sharing.

If you need to modify the name of a report after its been created, you can do so by clicking View Information/History on the Decisions page. The name of a report cannot be modified once it is published.

All report types can be customized and allow users to add relevent decision content to meet the user's needs. Examples of report contents are:

The above items can be combined to create a large, customized inbriefing report.
