Hi Dy,

You can do some basic testing like (not mentioning all the Nprinting development steps)

I have done this for testing. sorry if I missed any steps. I'm writing up what I can remember

connections: create local, server and connections to dash board with section access.

create a report: Excel, ppt, docx, etc.

Add objects to report

add formulas and variables to report

explore page and level feature

Try adding a default template and create a report

Create filters, conditions and try adding these at different level like add to user, report, task or object and test the working

Publish the tasks to folder, newsstand destination and email (if the email server is set up)


Run the task now and try triggered (scheduled)

explore News stand : reports and its subscriptions.


Create users

security rules

Hi Dy ,

I have faced similar problem with excel to pdf
this happens because excel table is so big and nprinting tries to display on a single sheet, weird results come out.

Try playing around with below section of excel. try changing the width/height/scale. (It wont mess up you excel look)

and also hit the small expand button below(highlighted) and change the settings there.

I don't exactly remember the dimensions I used but i had landscape report with minimal margins and some combination of height/width/scale.

just make some changes and preview as PDF and observe the changes and change accordingly.

And your second question - adding condition to report

you can add condition to your reports while you create a Task

The section where you add report to you task has conditions option

Thanks - sravan
