'Print Report' Changes

One of our users just alerted us to a change in functionality between Intella Connect 2.0.1, and Intella Connect 2.4.2, which we are switching over to using. It used to be that our users could hit the 'Print Report'  button when previewing an item and print out a PDF containing the data and most relevant metadata for that single item. I see that the user manual now states that this button now just generates a native rendering of the item. I'm not really sure why this would still be considered a 'Report'. Is there nothing in the new version of Intella that replicates the old function that doesn't include generating a full export for each item our users want a metadata report for? We typically don't enable exports by most of our users because generating them is much more confusing for our non-technical staff than pressing a single button, especially when the old reports contained the needed information 99% of the time.

Thanks.

Hi Alongden,

 

When switching from an older version like 2.0 to 2.4.2 we strongly recommend the user takes the on demand training.  This will help the appropriate person to understand the changes and how to get the most out of the new version. Upgrading without understanding the feature set can be problematic and can lose the benefits of the upgrade.

Obviously there are beneficial changes from 2.0.1 to 2.4.2 and the On Demand training can help explain the differences. We obviously missed the change to this button. However, I was mainly posting to get an answer to this question - does 2.4.2 have something that replicates this previous functionality or will we have to generate exports for every single item?

Hello Alongden,

 

The output of the Print Report button has been simplified to only show the Item's native rendering, the most critical item metadata and (optionally) the native rendering of its attachments. We may consider this option's output to be configurable in the future.

 

For forensically oriented prints you should use the Export function.
