Quick Views & the Report Creation Wizard
Synoptix Desktop Client Guide

Quick Views 


Quick Views allow for one-click creation of a series of predefined Operational reports which can then be saved as new standard or interactive reports, or can be exported to an Excel spreadsheet. Quick Views are the fastest way for a new user to see their company's data. They can also act as templates to jump start creation of more in-depth reports.

Depending on software modules purchased and ERP being used, Quick Views may or may not be available in your implementation.

To open a Quick Views report, click Quick Views in the Create group on the control panel. The Quick Views dialog box displays.


Select a company and a report name, then click Run.

Companies: Select an available company.

Reports: Select a report name and click Run. Available report names may differ depending on the company chosen.

After the report has completed, use the File menu to Save As an Interactive Report, or to Export as either a Standard Report or Excel-based Spreadsheet.
