Creating a report
TreeView has a range of reports and charts you can generate, allowing you to display the information about your family tree in different ways. They are ideal for sharing with others.
- To create a report, click the 'Reports' button on the toolbar.
- You can then choose the options for the report using the panel on the left hand side:
- Start Person - choose the start person for your report. For example, if you want to generate a narrative report from a particular person, choose this person as your start person.
- Report Name - choose which report you want to generate.
- Report Type (Narrative Report only) - Choose whether you want to show ancestors or descendants of the start person.
- Generations (Narrative Report only) - Choose how many generations you would like to show on the report. The more generations you select, the longer the report will be.
