Milestone Reports

This quick tutorial will show you how to produce two different types of Milestone reports. The first is a detailed development report and the second is a photo report for posting on bulletin boards.

Development Report Step 1:

Go to the Milestones section on your desktop and select “Build Report” from the sub menu.

 

Two tabs will be available. “Development Report” should already be selected, if it isn’t click its tab to bring up the options for the development report.

Step 2:

Select the date range you are interested in building a report for. If there is Milestone data for that date range the room drop down will become active and allow you to pick which room you’d like to create a report for.From there you can choose to create a report for all the children in that room with milestone data or select an individual child.

 

You can set the report to only include entries that have photos by setting the option to ON.

 

Once you have made your selections click the “Generate Report” button.

 

Step 3:

The report should now be displayed on screen below the form area. The development report is sorted alphabetically by child’s last name.

 

Each child will start on a new page when printed. On-screen pagination is also broken up by child.

 

Clicking the print report button will open the print version of the report in a new tab and bring up the Printer dialogue box to allow you to configure your printer settings.

The print version will also include a cover page detailing the date range, room and which children are included in the report.

 

Click OK when you are ready to print.
