Report Mappings

VETtrak has a huge range of default reports that can be run either through right click menu items on various nodes throughout the software or within the Standard Reports area. 

You may wish to utilise a Custom Report that is a modification of one of the existing standard or built-in reports in VETtrak. In this case, you will need to configure VETtrak to locate and run the custom report file.

To do this, go to the Report menu and select Report mappings.

The Report Mapping wizard will open. The wizard is separated into distinct areas, accessible by pushing the Next and Back buttons:

 

Right Click Report Mappings

The first page of the wizard allows you to add replacements for any of the right click reports that you access by a right-click menu in VETtrak.

A common example of a report of this nature can be seen when right-clicking an enrolment and selecting Show reports:

If you wished to customise the default Confirmation Report in VETtrak, you could then configure this customised report within this wizard.

To map a customised report:

  1. Locate the particular report that your customised version is designed to replace on the left hand side.
  2. Click in the empty box to the right and a small button with three dots will appear ()
  3. Clicking on this button will prompt VETtrak to display a Folder Browser window:

    Within here, navigate to the folder containing the report file

    NOTE: This can differ depending on whether you utilise VETtrak Hosting or run VETtrak locally.
  4. Select the report file, and press the Open button and the path will be placed into the right hand column
  5. Continue to click Next and then Finish to save the mapping

When you next run the report in the usual way, the modified version will display instead of the default one.

 

Record Type Report Mappings

Mapping unique Record Type reports allows you to integrate the custom reports directly into the VETtrak UI for the sake of convenience. You can then prompt an award report to display from places such as the Client ManagerProgramme Manager or even within Data Insights.

The Record Type Mappings area of the report mapping wizard is slightly different, as it requires you to create entries for your reports based off your needs.

The strength of this option is that it allows you to shortcut running special Award and Enrolment reports when you right-click these items in VETtrak.

You can choose to either make use of a Custom Report created by our VETtrak Report Writing team, or a Self-Service Report made entirely by yourself within the Self-Service Report Manager.

  3. To map a Custom Report, do the following:
    1. In the Report file name area, click the button with the three dots (). This will prompt VETtrak to display a Folder Browser window:

      Within here, navigate to the folder containing the report file and select the report file.
    2. Click Open.
    3. Click Next and Finish.
  4. To instead map a Self-Service Report in this area, do the following:

The steps to map a customised report are identical to mapping a Built-in Report:

  1. Locate the particular report that your customised version is designed to replace on the left hand side.
  2. Click in the empty box to the right and a small button with three dots will appear ()
  3. Clicking on this button will prompt VETtrak to display a Folder Browser window:

    Within here, navigate to the folder containing the report file

    NOTE: This can differ depending on whether you utilise VETtrak Hosting or run VETtrak locally.
  4. Select the report file, and press the Open button and the path will be placed into the right hand column
  5. Continue to click Next and then Finish to save the mapping
