Creating a new table style

1) Click on ‘Admin Options’ from under ‘System Settings’.

2) Click on ‘Custom Styles’. A new window will appear.


3) Click on the ‘Table Styles’ tab.

4) Click on ‘Add Table Style’.

5) Enter a name for the style.

6) Enter information about the table as a whole under ‘Table Style’. These properties might include the border around the perimiter of the table (border), or background color (background-color).

  • This example uses “background-color:white;”

7) Enter information about the header and header text under ‘Header Style’. These properties might include font size (font-size), font (font-family), color (color), or alignment (text-align), in addition to the background and border properties listed in step 6.

  • This example uses “background-color: #FBCC0D; border-color: #FBCC0D; color: white;”

8) Enter information about the cells in the table under ‘Cell Style’. You’ll need to specify a border (border) in this section to get it to show around every cell rather than just the perimiter of the table. The same text properties listed in step 7 can be applied to the cell text as well.

  • This example uses “border: 1px solid #FBCC0D; color: #0A1032; font-style: italic;”

9) Select ‘Default Style’ to have this style appear on all summary layouts unless otherwise indicated.

10) Click ‘Save’.

Assign a style to a specific summary layout

1) Click the Edit icon on the summary report page. A new window will appear.

2) Click on the ‘Columns’ tab.

3) Check the box next to ‘Show Advanced Options’.

4) Scroll down to the bottom of the window to select a style from the ‘Table Style’ dropdown menu.

Note: The style of default layouts will always be the organizational default style (which you can set using step 9 above).

5) Each individual column’s table style can also be customized using the ‘Style’ dropdown under each column. If a table style is not selected for individual columns, they will take on the overall ‘Table Style’ set. 

The ‘Gold Tables’ style in this example is shown below.
