You can change the default user preferences to customize the way that InfoAssist behaves when you create reports and generate output. The application theme, which is inherited from the portal, customizes the InfoAssist interface, including all menus and dialog boxes.
You can style your reports by selecting a document theme independent from the interface. On the InfoAssist application main menu, click Options.
The Options window, as shown in the following image, opens to provide you with a user-friendly interface for customizing the InfoAssist application.
Note: If you make changes to the default selections in the Options dialog box, changes will take effect the next time InfoAssist launches.
If any of the options are unavailable, contact your administrator for assistance.

Accordion. Values for this option are: Autofit and Legacy. The enhanced Accordion report format is built to autofit and be adaptive within windows and portal page containers. The legacy Accordion report opens in a tree structure independent of the window or container. The default value is Autofit.
Freeze. The Freeze option allows you to define a scroll area within the data of your report. It locks the headings and footings in place, enabling you to scroll through the data within the container. Values for this option are: Autofit and Fixed. Autofit sizes the scroll bar to fit the container. Fixed sets the scroll height to the default 4" size. The default value is Autofit.
You can change global preferences for InfoAssist through the Administration Console found on the portal. To do so, in the Administration Console, on the Configuration tab, click InfoAssist Properties.
