Annotation tab - report level

Use the DMI Annotation tab (report level) to specify text to display at the top of the report.

There are two types of annotation available to you:

  • You can add an annotation for the entire report. This is displayed at the top of the report, with a control for hiding or displaying the annotation.
    Report-level annotation is described in the current help topic.
  • You can add one or more annotation sections to your report.
    To add this type of annotation, create a section and set Section type to Annotation. For more information, see Annotation section type - details.

Both types of annotation support Markdown (see below for syntax), which means that you can format them and add graphics and links.

Access:

  1. Edit the report.
    Options:
    • Create a new report.
    • Open an existing report and select Edit report.
  2. Select the Annotation tab.
  3. Set Title to a useful label for the control that hides and shows the annotation text.
  4. Set Annotation text to the text itself, which can be a few words or a few paragraphs.

You can use Markdown to format the text and add links and graphics. Syntax is described below.
