Basic concepts of wraps

Help pages for the WrapCreator client

The WrapCreator Help pages are full of information on how to edit source spreadsheets with the Excel add-in and convert them to wraps.

Some of the topics covered in the WrapCreator help are:

Wrapsite front-end

These pages describe what the system looks like when your end-users use it, and how you can use the front-end interface also for administrative purposes.

MyWraps help pages

These are the help pages that document the MyWraps reporting functionality:

  • Overview: how to use MyWraps interactively – An introduction to the MyWraps user interface. This describes how you create ad hoc reports. Users with sufficient permissions can create a bespoke report and save the report link for later reuse.
  • Overview: MyWraps links and their parameters – Each MyWraps report is essentially a link. Users with sufficient permissions can save the link and use it to regenerate the report. The format of this link and its possible parameters are described in detail.
  • Filter a list of wraps – There are many ways to filter a list of wraps, and a number of operators like “equal to” or “greater than” that you will find useful.
  • MyWraps data types – This contains a reference listing of all the data types and signature properties in MyWraps.
  • Report pagination and MaxRows – Reports can be paginated using the pageSize parameter. You can request only a single page using the page parameter. MyWraps reports are limited to 500 wraps by default, to ensure a reasonable response from the server. This limit may be increased or removed with the MaxRows parameter in the link to the report.
  • MyWraps Report Setup – Users with sufficient permissions can use the Setup, Sort and Aggregate buttons in MyWraps to define a report, its columns, and any appended wraps.
  • MyWraps charts – Users with sufficient permissions can define the chart used to visualize a MyWraps report.
  • Add a MyWraps report to your Wrapsite – You can add a useful MyWraps report to your Wrapsite, making it easy for your users to use the report.
  • Actions – Users with sufficient permissions can perform several administrative functions directly inside MyWraps, e.g. Print wraps to PDF, Recalculate wraps, Freeze wraps without signing them, Export wraps to a local file, and Delete wraps.
  • Use Excel to analyze wrap data – Importing wrap data into Excel makes it easier to analyze large amounts of data.
  • Use the MyWraps2 function to read wrap data into other wraps – Using the MyWraps2 function, developers can request a single data extract containing all the data they need for a dashboard or a table inside another wrap.
  • Functions for developers – Two helpful Copy functions help you create MyWraps2 function calls and provide data for testing.
  • Track MyWraps in the Audit trail – all MyWraps requests can be logged in the Audit Trail.
