Understand common actions in map report for tablet

There are some common actions that are available in the report without having to predefine them. These actions are available in default positions. They are often required because of which they mandatorily appear in the report. The following are the common actions:

Add a record

The add record icon appears at the top-right corner of the report along with the search icon. This enables you to add a new record to the report. Tapping the add icon opens the Form screen. You can fill in the field values and submit. You will find that the record that you submitted is displayed in your report.

Search records

Search enables you to look for specific data within a report. On tapping the search icon, the search screen lists the fields of the report. You need to select the field, operator and the condition by which you want to run the search. The records that match the condition are displayed. You can select multiple fields, thereby specifying multiple conditions based on which the records need to be looked for.

For instance, if you have a Tourism Management app with a map report that plots the destinations that your tour packages cover, you can use the Search field in the map to locate the record.

For Radio button, Dropdown, Checkbox and Multiselect field types, the criteria values will be pre-populated based on the configured options. So, the user can use the field values to search for matching records.

Note: Closing the report after applying the search criteria save the report in that state. On accessing the report the next time, the report loads with the previously applied search criteria, displaying only the records that match the same. To view all the records you must remove or clear the search criteria.

Print records

To access print option, tap on the icon in the header. The printer needs to be configured to be able to print.

Export records

Exporting records help you obtain or download the records that are in Creator report into a specific format for a purpose outside of Zoho Creator environment. To access the option, click on the hamburger icon. Selecting Export displays the congruent window. Supported formats include: Spreadsheet, HTML, XML, JSON, CSV, and TSV. Select the required format to export the records.

Note: Zoho Creator does not, in any way, include any kind of harmful information or data into your exported files.
