Changing the default template that is used when creating new reports

Version 1

    Problem:

    Whenever you create a new report it automatically opens with the LANDesk logo and color scheme.  It would be nice to change this so that all new reports have the company formatting.

     

    Solution:

    To change the template that is used for new reports do the following:

     

    • Run the report designer tool (LANDesk\ManagementSuit\DataDynamics.Reports.Designer.exe)
    • Whe the tool opens, open the master template file (ldmain\reporting\USLetterLandscape.rdlx)
    • Modify the template adding the company logo and formatting. 
    • Save the updated template

     

    After modifying this template all new reports will start with the new changes that you have made.

     

    If you make a mistake or would like to rollback the template there is a copy of all of the report files in the rptfiles.cab located in the same ldmain\reporting directory.
