Ability to Bring Current Data and Historical Data Into One Report for a
Specific Object in a Workflow
Authors: Marquis Waller, Linda Liebelt, DR Palmer
IPPD allows the user to create Report Templates that captures and groups historical data for a job as it goes through a workflow. With this invention we add the ability to include a step in a workflow that captures current data on a job (including user-defined attributes) that can be combined with the Report Template the user chooses to create a single report for the job at that point in the workflow. Multiple reports can be created for a single job at different points in time. This allows the user to combine historical data that has been stored in a separate database and viewed in a separate report view, and the current data captured and place it into one report, either PDF, CSV, or XML format.
