Software can make your routine simpler and with better results. For instance, making clear and good-looking reports would turn into a real battle without a helpful tool. One of these tools is Excel, a well-known mega-beast of valiant deeds and immortal glory. Yet, if business-warriors have to make some custom report, it’s developer-warriors who get their share of the job. This might be a problem. Every time you have to involve extra people in routine procedures, it’s costly and time-consuming (to say nothing of the fact that developer-warriors have a lot of other battles to fight).
It would be good to design a report engine — another mega-beast that is as powerful and helpful. The complex widget SpreadSheet, one of the components of the Webix UI library, is a relevant core element for a decent mega-beast to win the deathmatch and save your end-users from extra expenses. Join me, developer-warriors, and I’ll show you how to enhance SpreadSheet and make it serve business-warriors well in their battles. Together we’ll create a spreadsheet-based report engine that will allow your end-users to make a custom report themselves by choosing templates from a list and editing them to their liking.
