You can access the 'Print Settings' for a report by editing the report and clicking on 'Edit Header'.

To customise your PDF, make sure you are on the 'Print' tab and rather than the 'Online' tab. Select the 'Print' tab in the top right of your screen. For more on online report customisation, see Brand or white label your report.

You can adjust the following settings.

Cover Page Orientation

Switch between portrait and landscape orientation.


Adjust the text alignment to LEFT or CENTRE, and switch between light and dark title text.


You can fill the cover page with a colour fill, image fill, or just leave it blank. A colour fill or image fill can be set to a full-page or half-page.

For the background image fill, we accept .jpg .png or .svg file types. The dimensions for your background image will depend on whether your Organisation Report Settings are set to 'a4' or US 'letter'. You can add a background image for both landscape and portrait reports.

Full title page

  • Full a4 title page: Design a custom background image that is 297mm x 210mm.

  • Full letter title page: Design a background image that is 279mm x 216mm.

Half title page

  • Half page a4 title page: upload an a5 file 148mm x 210mm.

  • Half page letter title page: upload a half letter file 140mm x 216mm.
