You can create customized reports in exactly the same way that you create customized table settings (see Customized Table Settings). For example, if you regularly want a report of work orders performed in Plant #2, you could set up the options you want and then save them under a name like Plant #2 Work Orders. Any time you want the report, you can simply select the name from the list of available settings; MainBoss will then adjust all the options so that you'll see the report when you click the report window's preview button (MainBoss).

Note: Generating reports can take a lot of time, especially if the report contains a lot of data. Therefore, when you select a name from the list of available settings, MainBoss doesn't immediately generate the corresponding report. This may be a little confusing, but it's actually practical—if you accidentally pick the wrong entry from the list of available settings, you don't want MainBoss pausing for a long time while it generates a report that you don't actually want. When you select a customized report from the list, MainBoss doesn't generate the report until you click MainBoss.
