The last tip was about the difference between Daily and Summary Reports. What better tip to compliment that post than a tip about printing these reports. One could argue that posting a baking tip about donuts you can make and enjoy while you analyze and run reports would be a better compliment than a post about printing, but if I continue to talk about the topic of donuts, I might need to stop typing and start baking something delicious.
Back to printing. Sometimes you may need hard copies of reports. After you run a report, a print icon will appear in the top right corner of the report you are currently examining. When you click on this icon, it is important to change your printing orientation (or layout) to landscape. Otherwise, your beautifully summarized data may be cut off. This will require you to make another trip to the printer, which I know can take a lot longer than expected (i.e. “Why is the printer jammed?”, “Is that a line?”, “I need more ink. Where’s the ink?”). I want to help you avoid that experience as much as possible. Other than changing the layout/orientation, printing from My Day Web App is very easy.
