How to add a second image to your suitability report title page

How to add a second image to your suitability report title page

Did you get a chance to read my last blog about how to include / remove the Report Reference from the Report Title Page?

Well, don’t worry if not, as this month I’ll be looking at how you can add another image (in addition to your company logo) to the front cover of your suitability reports which will definitely help spice up the look of your reports! 

Last month, Richard Lent, our Technical Product Specialist wrote a blog on How Genovo can help you meet some of the requirements of the Pension Transfer Gold Standard. 

So following on from this blog, I thought I’d show you how you could add the Pension Transfer Gold Standard (PTGS) badge (or any other image or logo for that matter) to the front cover of your suitability reports. 

So let’s begin…

Report Title Page

As you all know, below is our standard report title page, the content of which you can customise via the report content manager.

If you just want to change the colours, fonts and styles then you can do this via the report theme.

Your company logo will automatically  come out in the top right hand corner of your report title page assuming you’ve uploaded it via customisation > upload logo

Simple. But what if you want to add an additional image or  logo to the front cover of your reports? 

Follow these 10 step-by-step instructions and all will be revealed.

How to add the PTGS badge to your Report Title Page

Just to note, this example uses the PTGS badge as referred to in Richard’s blog, but you can adapt these instructions to any image you may wish to add.

  • From your dashboard go to customisation > report content manager.
  • Select the Report Type as the suitability report from the first dropdown menu and select the report title page section from the second dropdown.
  • Click the corresponding edit icon for the snippet entitled title page (suitability report).

You’ll then be directed to the snippet detail page as shown below:

Moving on…

  • Click create custom snippet. This will create a clone of the Genovo snippet, and direct you to the snippet editor where you can now customise the content of the report title page.
  • Position your cursor within the text box of the Genovo HTML Editor where you would like the image to come out.
  • Use Ctrl+V  to paste the image directly into the Genovo HTML Editor as you would if you were pasting an image into Word.
  • To resize the image right click your mouse on the image which will in turn open a drop down menu where you can select image properties.
  • Clicking Image Properties will open the Image Properties dialog box and it’s here that you can adjust the width and height of the image to reflect your requirements – just remember to keep the aspect ratio (padlock) locked.
  • Once you’ve made your edits, click save.

You’ll be taken back to the snippet detail page and your custom version will be automatically selected as active.

And here is the result once the report is downloaded to Word…

Remember that you’ll need to change the report title page for each report type but if you get a fancy front cover at the end it’s worth it, right?

I know it’s hard to grab a few spare minutes but when you next get chance, use these steps to add  valuable creative flare to your reports. Any problems give me a shout and I’ll be happy to help.
