Print template


Reports directory

This directory contains your standard reports as well as all reports that you have created with the Fast Report Template Designer. Please note that the file names of the reports have to start with XT_BASE_, so that Xpert-Timer offers them in the drop-down menu.

If you customize your print template yourself, you should provide it with an individual name, eg. XT_BASE_company_name. Otherwise, it could happen that your template will be overwritten during an update. However, a copy of the template is saved in the folder "Backup -> Reports" during the update. So you can restore it anytime.

The Xpert-Timer provides you with some print templates after installation. If necessary, you can change these to suit your requirements. In this tab you already have the opportunity to replace your address with that of "Dieter Demo" and integrate your logo.

Edit report template

To change the colors of the template, you must start the report generator.

Click on the "Edit" field to the right of the template selection. A report generator named FastReport opens, with which you can only adjust the graphic elements such as lines and backgrounds of the report. You can only influence the output data by means of the program by filtering the data accordingly and showing or hiding columns.

The colors must be adjusted via the "Styles" in the "Report" menu. In the FastReport Template Designer, click on the menu item -> "Report" -> "Styles".


You can edit the color, the font and the frames of the areas. Make sure you save your changes, using the green check.


Following areas can be edited:


= Column headers


= Part of "colheader" and should be formatted the same way
