Izenda Reports contains several different reporting pages within the downloadable demo site that can either be used as-is or modified to fit your organization's needs. In this section, we will give you a quick overview of all the different pages that Izenda offers to outline the various reporting features and possibilities for integrating Izenda.
The Report List page comes packaged with the downloadable demo and is already configured to leverage the responsive AJAX API that will communicate with the Izenda Reports DLL. This page can work standalone or be plugged directly into any container in a master page. From here, you may view reports or edit them. The toolbar is part of the Izenda site's master page and is designed to work across all reporting pages out of the box. You can implement your own header as well. Below is an example of a Report List page that has been branded and styled to give a Microsoft Office 2013 feel.

As stated before, you may also embed Izenda Reports into your existing website. In the example below, a single master page with JQuery powered tabs embeds a customized implementation of the Report List using the AJAX API stated above.

As you can see, Izenda Reports is flexible and can be made to fit into your company's application wit the look and feel of a seamless integration.
The Report Designer page is the page that this guide will cover in detail throughout the course of these tutorials. It has many tools that allow you to create new reports and modify existing reports. However, it was designed with ease of use in mind. Therefore, the most important tools for designing basic reports are laid out in an intuitive and easy-to-use style while the more intricate pieces are completely optional. You can see the Report Designer page below.
The Report Designer lets you create new reports and modify existing reports.
In addition to viewing reports, the Report Viewer lets you easily modify a previously created report or save a variation of the report. You can also print reports, export them to various formats, and share them through email.

The dashboard designer allows you to create dashboards using existing reports. Dashboards can currently contain up to eleven different parts of reports. Each piece of the dashboard is a synopsis of the data contained in each report. You can also switch between previewing and editing your dashboard with the preview feature. Below is an example of what the dashboard designer allows a user to do.
