The same details used to build the Variable Prompt data entry windows can also be used to generate reports to aid authors. I-Deal Docs includes functions to generate:
- An Answer Sheet. This generates a data-dump report in a new Word document. By default, the report is formatted as a two-column table. The left column shows the variable names and descriptions. The right column shows the answer the operator entered for each variable. This could be filed with the matter or returned to the work author for verification. The report might look like:
- A Dictation Sheet. This generates a new Word document with the same two-column table layout as above except that the right column is blank. This allows an entry for each variable to be handwritten, or for the report to be used as a digital dictation aid.
