    2121=== Functionality ===
     22* A user friendly wizard to define what data you want to see and how you want to see it to generate different types of reports.
    2223* The ability to easily switch between displaying the same data on various types of reports. eg:
    2324 * List -> Map
     
    3637
    3738=== Report Gallery ===
     39No matter how easy we make it for people to generate their own information products, it will still be too hard or time consuming for some people. I think that it is best to allow for a configurable "gallery" of different reports to allow users to quickly and easily access the reports that they need.
     40* The Report Gallery could be configured to have:
     41 * an index page which includes a tumb nail of each report
     42 * a menu item
     43 * sub-menu items directly to each report
     44* An instance of Sahana could contain more than one Report Gallery
     45* This functionality could be an extension of [wiki: DeveloperGuidelines/SaveSearchAndSubscription Save Search and Subscription] work and allow users to configure their own Report Gallery.

    40 === Integration with ADAT ===
    41 
     47=== Integration with Survey Module ===
     48There is a lot of need for data analysis, visualisation and reporting within the Survey Module and it would be good if the framework level functionality could support this. This will be slightly tricky, because the Survey Module data isn't standard S3XRC layout. Could the Survey Modul just pass XML and then the framework could take it from there? If they supported XML input this could be much more powerful.
