FileMaker Extra: Incorporating Reports into the Workflow

The focus of this chapter has been on the creation of list and subsummary report layouts. There's a bit more to creating useful reports, however, than merely setting up nice looking layouts: You have to incorporate reports into the user workflow, controlling how a user both accesses and exits a report. The methods you choose may vary from solution to solution, and your choice is a function of both what the system does and the particular audience. If the users are proficient with FileMaker, they may be comfortable manually finding and sorting a set of records and navigating to the appropriate layout.
