Creating Problem List HTML Template

To create a problem list template, make an HTML file and put field place holders where you want field data inserted.  A field place holder has the format [$FieldLabel] to be output as a regular text or has the format [$$FieldLabel] to be output as a hyperlink text.  Field place holders may be placed anywhere in the body of the HTML file and inside a table.

In addition to the field place holders, there are date and time place holders with format [@Date] and [@Time]. These place holders, placed anywhere in the body of the HTML file, are filled in the date and time that the HTML files were generated.

Furthermore, the project name and total numbers of problem reports in the problem list can be put in the page with format [$ProjectName] and [$ProblemCount] respectively.

A starter problem list template file named ProblemList.html is shipped with PR-Tracker. We recommend that you start by copying this file and then format the copy to suit your needs. The file may be found in the PR-Tracker program files directory under the subdirectory HTML Templates.

You can also create a Problem List Template from File|Make Problem List Template. This problem list template will have the view that you specify and be named after the view 's name. Note that the (default view) option contains the following fields in the Problem List: Number, Status, Priority, Title, and Assigned To.

To create the template, perform the following steps:

  1. Open HTML Report Generator.
  2. From File menu, select Make Problem List Template....
  3. The Make Problem List Template dialog appears.
  4. Select one view from the View list in the combo box.
  5. Select Make Template button after you finalize your view option.
    Note: If you decide not to create the problem list template, you can choose Cancel to go back to the main window
