Administrators managing reporting.
Report admin permissions are required.
Report rules are an additional feature within Coruson. These rules allow you to specify a condition and then specify a course of action that will be automatically performed by the system.
For Example: If an accident report is filled in and the nature of the injury is set as a fall from height then you can assign risk assessments that should be performed or change the priority of the report.
It is important to remember that reporting rules are different from the form rules that take place when filling in a form and these conditions are only evaluated when the report is submitted to the system.

1. What Can Reporting Rules Do?
Reporting rules are useful if you require specific fields to be populated.

- Fill in report fields automatically: If the condition is met, specific dropdown fields can be populated without the user needing to fill them in.
