While tweaking the wiki page that suggests possibilities for custom Event types, the thought occurred that custom types, attributes and associations would be a lot more valuable if reports were modified to leverage them.
Since each custom Type is going to have a limited audience, it would probably be best to show users how to customize a report to look at these items.
I thought it might be useful to have a tutorial that forks the Person Everything report to make one that includes Associations.
Likewise, the Note Link report could be forked for a tutorial on look for a user selectable Association/custom type/custom attribute.
Does someone have code snippits that could be added to a new tutorial on modifying reports? (It would be an alternative to the report writing tutorial.)
The idea would be to have confidence building steps that show a person:
- How to successfully fork to a renamed variant with identical capabilities
- Step-by-step modifications (without using pseudocode) to a working fork with modified capabilities
- The wiki page on submitting a 3rd party add-on
Users would also be advised to look at code that currently polls these customizable items:
