Most documents require a company logo, a common header or footer, input parameters common across documents, and more. These are examples of places your report designer is wasting time by performing the same work over and over. PODs can encapsulate each of these elements, and by dragging and dropping, be inserted directly into your template. Save time on the work itself as well as proofing and debugging, with confidence that all of your templates contain identical segments.
PODs expedite the redundant work that your template developer goes through when designing templates for your company. PODs operate like the ultimate copy/paste: include all your most used document sections in asingle POD file, and anywhere you import that POD file each of your most used elements can be included with a simple drag and drop into your template. Easy as that!
An additional benefit of PODs is how it enables business and technical users to collaborate in template design. For any common template sections that require the expertise of a developer, both the business user and developer alike can save large amounts of time by working through PODs. Have your technical developer design and debug each section of your template that you require, be it heavy in complex queries or perhaps extensive logic involving many tags. After your developer includes your required section in a POD file, import that POD file into any template during development and drag and drop your PODs anywhere in the file to include them wherever required.
