5 InfoMiniInfoMini enables you to develop mini applications. On a report-by-report basis, you can choose which features of InfoAssist to embed into a report. An InfoMini application has two modes – interactive and edit.The interactive mode gives access to features available on InfoAssist’s Home, Format and Slicers tabs. This includes features such as the ability to change report format and add a heading. In this mode there is no interactive canvas and or ability to alter the query.The edit mode exposes additional functionality such as the Resources Panel (field list, filter bucket, and query bucket) and the Field Tab. In this mode the user can add/remove fields from the query, style individual fields and perform other tasks. There is still no interactive canvas since this is a smaller version.
