Novatus Contracts allows you to create customized reports on the data that you have added to the program. There are four general areas of reporting:
- Basic Reporting includes the Company One-Click, Contract One-Click, and Document Package One Click reports, which display a summary of the key data stored in a Company Profile, Contract Profile, and Document Package. The next level of basic reporting employs a Report Wizard that steps you through the process of creating a report. Once a report is created using the wizard, you can preview the report, edit it, make a copy, share it with other users, update a report filter, and delete it. You can also view a list of the reports that you created in a central location; this list also includes the reports that other users have shared with you.
- Scheduled Reporting involves programming the Novatus system to email reports to a distribution list on a regularly scheduled basis (i.e., daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly). You can also schedule a report to be delivered only once. Once a report is scheduled for delivery, you can edit the delivery schedule, or cancel delivery of the report. All of the reports that you have scheduled can be viewed in a central location.
- Advanced Reporting involves creating a report using different data sets and applying customized formatting to the report layout. You can also associate an advanced report with a search query to narrowly define the information that is displayed in the report. Once an advanced report is created, it is labeled as an "Advanced Report" in your list of reports, where you can preview it and edit it, as needed.
- Analytics Reporting involves analyzing the data stored in Novatus and communicating patterns discovered in the data. Analytics Reports extract data at the field level, and then display the data linearly and/or graphically using a color-coded chart or a report summary.
