Creating Report Packages

Creating Report Packages

  1. Navigate to Grow Practice > Customization > Report Packages.
  2. Click + Create New in the upper right.
  3. Enter the Name of Package. Note this will appear on the Report itself on the Cover Page, so enter something that can be client-facing.
  4. Select the Type of Package (This will control where the report can be run from):
    • Groups of Accounts: This report is meant to run on the Client or Household level.
    • Accounts: This report is meant to run on the individual Account level.
  5. Optional: Make this report the company-wide default for its level. You can have one default Report Package each for Household, Client, or Account level reports. Company-wide default reports run on all Households, Clients, or Accounts that do not have a specific report assigned or the Suppress option set for reporting.
  6. Click Create Package.
  7. Verify your settings and click Confirm & Continue.
