TELEMAGIC HOW TO:
HOW TO MANAGE SALES
Manage sales easily with powerful standard reports and a
full custom report writer.
There are three types of reports in TeleMagic: standard reports,
custom reports, and quick lists.
Standard reports are designed to anticipate your reporting
needs and make printing professional reports easier than ever.
Most of the major areas of TeleMagic include standard reports.
When you print a standard report, the design and layout have
already been done for you. Controlling what is included in
your standard report is accomplished through dialog boxes,
such as the Pending Activity Report dialog box shown here.
Rather than printing, you may also choose to fax your report
directly to the interested party.
Among the standard reports included with TeleMagic
are security reports, database structure reports, address
and phone lists, activity reports, and many others.
A related feature to standard reports is TeleMagic's envelope
and label printing functions. TeleMagic can print envelopes,
shipping labels, name tags, rotary cards, and other items
in many popular formats. This feature can streamline the preparation
of your mass mailings, conferences, and promotional activities.
Most standard Avery® label formats are supported.
Custom reports let you present your information so that
it makes sense
in YOUR company.
Since no two businesses are alike, TeleMagic includes a powerful
custom reporting feature. Custom reports allow you to design
your own reports detailing practically any information in
TeleMagic. You control what information is included, what
calculations are made based on that information, and how the
information is laid out. You can even include graphics in
your report, such as OLE objects from your database. With
custom reports, you start with a blank page and use report
generation tools to build a report. The report generator includes
everything you need to produce whatever report you may require.
In addition to these two basic reporting options,
TeleMagic offers a quick list option. A quick list is a custom
report with limited formatting options. If you need a quick
summary of data in one or more fields, a quick list is the
easiest solution. Making a quick list is a simple matter of
selecting the fields you wish to report on and deciding on
All report options and features are available through the
Reports menu selection on the menu bar. The Reports
menu itself can be configured to meet your needs. You can
add or remove your custom reports and quick lists on the menu
for quick access to the reports you use the most.
