Rewriting the reports
I’ve started looking at the reports again. We need to update these and get them cleaned up. Unfortunately, it looks to be a considerable amount of work. On top of that, there seems to be a wide range of opinions on what should be in each report. I think that no matter what we do, we won’t be able to please everyone. In fact, without generating 800 versions of each report, I think that few will be perfectly happy with each report.
I think about the best we can do is create reports that can meet about 90% of the expectations of the majority of users.
It can be depressing to start a task where you feel like you are doomed to fail 🙂
