Favourites
PPS offers a wide variety of reports for which you can select a broad range of selections, criteria and breakdown options. You have the option of adding any report, including your selections, criteria and breakdown options to a list of Favourites. To access your favourite reports, these are displayed alongside all other PPS reports and are accessed from the PPS Menu: Reports – PPS Reports & Mail Merge. This screen has a “favourites” section in the bottom right corner. To add a report to your favourites list, simply select any report from any section, and select the <Open> button for that section. The PPS Report Wizard screen appears allowing you to make your selections for the report – this screen has an <Add to Favourites> button (if you open one of your current favourite reports, the button prompt is <Update Favourites>). When you add a report to your favourites, you can add a Title and Description that will appear on the main PPS Reports menu screen. All your selections for the report are saved so that each time you run the report you do not have to make all your selections again.
