Custom Reports

Postby ajames » Mon Apr 23, 2007 5:17 pm

I recently have found the need to create several custom reports, and MLS was the best option I had (since I needed a lot of member data to go into them). The problem I've noticed is that while you can choose "User-Defined Fields," you cannot change the name of that field (so that it would print saying, "move-out date" or whatever you want to define. Is there a way around this, or should this option (hopefully) be in a later version of MLS?

I think what you are after is already there. I'm running MLS 2.4.3 and I did the following:

1) Click System Options | Members | Custom Fields
2) Created a new date field called "Move Out Date"
3) Clicked on Reports/Forms | Custom Reports
4) Added a new report titled Move Out Date
5) Skipped over the Criteria (though I do see "Move out date" is an option there when clicking Custom Fields)
6) Clicked on Format and selected Move Out Date as one of my columns
7) Saved it and ran it.

It shows "Move Out Date" at the top of the column in my custom report, so it appears to be working fine. Just curious what you might be seeing differently?
