The Radio Buttons in the Custom Report Generator
It’s a rare occasion that we don’t label something in the database. Usually we try to give you a definitive label so there are no questions about what a button does in the system. This is one of those occasions when the label would be much larger than the button.
You may have noticed these tiny, little buttons.
They appear in the Query Details area of the Custom Report Generator after you have built your query in the Custom Report Generator and clicked the Add to Query button.
They’re called radio buttons because about a million years ago in old car radios, you pushed one button, the dial moved. When you pushed another, the first choice was dropped and the dial moved again. (I only remember this because my dad’s truck only had AM radio and it was torture to drive with him).
When you click one of our radio buttons, that piece of the query will populate in the Query Builder (when you click another radio button, the first one will disappear and be replaced by the piece you just clicked). This can be helpful in two ways:
Hopefully this has helped you figure out a better way to correct your reports, or build more complex reports. Either way, maybe this has solved the mystery of those little buttons. In the meantime, if you have an idea on a simple label for this area, feel free to pass it along to us!
