Add your own Report Topping

< Back

Do you want to make the Cascade reports even more personal? Now you can add a Report Topping with your special text.

Add your chosen text for everyone, or special words for each person. For example, you can provide some context to the report showing at the top ‘As a Manager’, ‘As a Student’, As a Pastor’, or the name of the team ‘The Dream Team’.

How to create the Report Topping

There is a vast array of applications for the Repot Toppings. Choose the type of message you want to display.

Standard Text for everyone
