Creating a report while co-displaying other reports
SolveXia Analytics & Reporting provides a simple way to create powerful reports based on managed tables. With the latest BI and data visualisation techniques, you can create reports that communicate and inform effectively.
This article will guide you through the creation of a report which co-displays another report. The co-display feature is used to display multiple reports within a single screen, or to create tabs for easy switching between multiple reports. This allows an user to make quick comparisons between reports. In this example, we will use the co-display feature to display two reports side-by-side.
