Customization Options

The Snapshot report can be customized as needed with drag and drop flexibility and the ability to add or remove charts using the "Add Item" dropdown menu.

Generating Snapshot Report

Open the client and click on the "More" menu (represented by the ... ellipsis) and select "Report".

  1. Select the Snapshot element of the report as well as any other area's that you'd like to include. (Clicking a bolded word will automatically select all the sub-sections; selecting an item that is unbolded will only include that one item in addition to anything else selected.)

  1. Scroll down and select Download selected pages. This will generate a .pdf which can be printed out using your standard .pdf software.

Preview

The Snapshot also provides a PDF report preview that allows advisors to see the layout of the items if they were to print this page in the PDF report.

Snapshot Troubleshooting

Concentrated Position

  • When using the Concentrated Position widget a maximum of 4 concentrated positions will be visible.

Notes

  • When adding a bulleted list in the notes section, the report PDF can cut off the list after 4 lines (half text box) and after 13 lines (full text box).

Tasks

  • The snapshot module will display up to 4 tasks in the software and up to 3 tasks when adding the snapshot to a PDF report. Due to space limitations, longer task descriptions may be cut off. However within the software you can hover your mouse over the task description to view the full explanation.
