The Informer Summer 2021 Issue

Full Sail Partners Utilizes Informer 5.4’s Templated Output

With Informer Templates, Full Sail Partners can rerun data as many times as they need on an ad hoc basis to include all necessary information within the template. For every single agreement, Full Sail is saving about 20 minutes, adding up to a significant amount of time saved. Full Sail has future-proofed their forms with Informer by using its ability to populate dynamic fields directly from the database.

Managing Big Data With Informer

When data is abundant, finding actionable insights can be like finding a needle in a haystack. The key to extracting insights from big data is preparing the Dataset in a meaningful manner, and then being able to interact with it efficiently. If it is cumbersome or time-consuming to obtain results, it quickly diminishes the value of the Dataset.

The More You Know

Have you ever wanted to eliminate rows from your Dataset based on a Calculated Field? There are two ways to do this: Post Query Filters or using a Power Script to omit records from the data. Filters are useful when you are looking to slice and dice the data in several different ways without eliminating the records altogether. The Power Script option allows you to eliminate those records before displaying the data which is helpful to automate results without having to manually apply the filters.
