Drag and Drop Builder
Drag and Drop builder allows users to use a pre-defined data view to build their reports. All business logic is built into the view. CSV Import can take place as part of this builder, if the user has permission to access these options.
Note: all the Report Builder documentation uses the Drag and Drop Builder unless otherwise specified.
These allow the report writer to define the query, rather than using a predefined view.
You can use a Jasper XML report editor such as iReports to create pixel perfect crystal style reports. This definition can be loaded into Yellowfin.
You can create load previously defined BIRT reports into Yellowfin.
Note: for most users it is recommended that you choose the Drag and Drop report creation method.
