[EP-tech] Generic Reporting Framework v3.0
We've today published an update to the Generic Reporting Framework that
should make it more useful out-of-the-box and more configurable for
existing reports and future reports.
The updates are documented at
https://wiki.eprints.org/w/Generic_Reporting_Framework but to provide a
brief overview of the new functionality, the update includes:
1. *New 'EPrints' and 'User' custom reports.* These allow for reports
to be generated about the eprint and user datasets. Once the reports
are generated they can be exported, with the 'Export Options'
interface allowing you to choose which fields you'd like to include
in your exported report, making it much easier to create
spreadsheets that only contain the relevant information.
2. *HTML Report Export. *This new export format creates an HTML page of
the generated report. The look and feel of this report can be
configured by specifying a custom template to be used, or using CSS
classes, and the HTML report can also be printed to PDF using your
browser's print to PDF functionality.
3. *Grouping and Sorting. *Reports now have 'Group by' and 'Sort by'
options where configured allowing for the items in a report to be
4. *Export Virtual Report Fields. *Virtual fields may be defined in the
report's configuration allowing for values generated by a custom
function to be included in the export.
We hope you find these updates useful!
