This function prints a summary report of the currently displayed
record or list.
Access Quick Printing
Pull down the Print menu and choose Reports and Letters.
Wherever you are in Collect! the Report Definition list will
allow you the Quick Print option although most other reports
in the list will change depending on what form is open.
The Quick Print option prints a summary of the contents of
the record or list you have currently selected. The titles and
field contents are printed in one of a few different formats,
dependent on whether you are looking at a list or a form.
You can choose to print details or only line items.
When printing a list, Quick Print automatically totals ALL
Since dates and some other items are numeric (even though
it may not appear so on the screen) these items will show
totals. Ignore these totals unless you understand what they
Quick Print allows you to print using the same choices as
regular printing - file, screen, spreadsheet and email output
are all supported.
Column Wrapping When Quick Printing
When you Quick Print a list, for example, the Client List, you
may find that your columns have "wrapped" and are not spread
out across your page or screen. To remedy this, when you go
to print your report and the Print Report screen pops up, change
your Page Width to 132. Then choose Print and your columns
will be aligned properly.
Word wrapping and column alignment are handled well
automatically when you print via browser. Then you can print the
resulting HTML page to your printer to produce a quick but
Customized List View
When you are viewing a list with customized columns inserted
or removed from the default view, Quick Print will print the
columns you are viewing. However, if printing "All Details",
the default list view is used.
Printing To Spreadsheet
When printing "All Details" to Spreadsheet, only records in
the list will be output, Collect! will not drill down into subforms.
Print Via Browser
Press the Printer Setup button on the Print Report screen to
display the Printer Setup dialog. Switch ON Print Via Browser.
Then press Exit and you will be back at the Print Report screen.
Now you will see a Print Preview choice that wasn't there before.
Choose this and press Print to view your Quick Print results in
Print To Technical Support
When you select 'Screen' as your report output option, the
check box labeled "Technical Support" is displayed. You
can switch this on to send a copy of your Quick Print results
directly to Member Services for review. This is very useful
when technicians need to see details of lists or of a
particular Debtor. It is much quicker and more convenient
than sending a fax.
