Report The Reporting interface in SIX is relatively straightforward and flexible. There are changes you can make to proposal reports on the fly without having to create a custom report. These include changing the cover page image, turning report parameters on or off and choosing how your data will display on reports. This article will answer three common questions regarding these functions. 

How Do I Change the Cover Page Image?

The Cover Page image can be changed two ways: per Project and Globally. To change the image on a per Project basis, click the “Cover Page Image” button on the Reports tab in the Project Editor.
