management reports


Reports can be printed from within most Jim2 objects, but management reports (system, profit, labour, etc.) are reports that are not related to an individual record, form or list. On the ribbon, go to Management > Reports.


Access to Management Reports is governed by a user's security level.


The following Reports screen will open:

The reports available for printing are affected by Report Level Security. When logging on to Jim2, your user ID will ensure the correct level of access to available reports. Some reports may not show in the dropdown list, depending on the user's security level.


Each object in Jim2 can be reported on, therefore each object is supplied with a suite of relevant reports. The actual printing devices available must have been previously set up in Options.



If necessary, the standard reports included with Jim2 can be modified to suit, or others can be designed using the Jim2 Report Designer. The ability to use standard scripts within Jim2 Reports, ensures that Jim2 can grow to suit the company's requirements.
