Action Plan

  

When you create a report to analyse your clients’ data, you may want to focus in on specific actions they need to take in future, or monitor progress against previously agreed actions. To do this, you can use the Action Plan page. With this page type you can focus on up to six agreed actions, set due dates and assign actions to specific people in the business.

To add the Action Plan page

The page already appears in the default templates, but if it doesn’t appear in your report you can easily add it:

  1. Open the Customise Layout tab, then click Add Page.
  2. Enter a name for the page, for example Action Plan.
  3. From the Page Type drop-down list, choose Action Plan.
  4. From the Insert After drop-down list, choose the page after which you want to insert the new page.
  5. To add the page, click Save.
