Report WIZARD

Each created and saved report in WIZARD panel can be edited and re-arranged in many ways. Leon users can decide what columns should get displayed in the report and in what order, they can choose period of time for each report and name each report the way they want.

It is possible to send schedules from REPORT WIZARD to particular recipients in pre-defined periods of time. Each stored report can be sent out frequently by using this functionality. Leon will send an email with 2 files attached: Excel & PDF.

'Edit template' function allows editing the report in HTML and creating an alternative and more complex version of the same report including options such as:

  • changing the headers in the report
  • highlighting data
  • sorting the report according to aircraft flights
  • implementing charts
  • and many more

It is also possible to show various charts in WIZARD REPORT. You can show various charts, by using QuickChart Documentation web service that generates chart images, which are suitable for embedding in email, SMS, chatbots, and other formats.
