Change Your Logo on a Crystal Report

Summary

Here is how to change your logo on a Crystal Report within Orchestrated.

Graphics Warning!

Crystal Reports recognizes almost all graphics, however *.png formatted graphics may have issues due to their transparent backgrounds. It is recommended that all logos utilize a 100 x 100 pixel size, *.bmp, *.jpg, or *.jpeg file format with a 2" X 2" max area (apx 100kb max in size). Uncompressed graphics can inflate file size which can lead to a substantial decrease in performance.  Additionally, please ensure the uploaded image is the same length and width, or the logo may appear stretched or distorted when printing documents.  

 

Step-by-step guide

For Layouts based on Marketing Documents

The logo on the marketing documents (Purchase Order, Sales Order, Invoices, etc...) is based on the logo you have associated in your Orchestrated system.  To change this logo:

  1. Within Orchestrated go to Administration > System Initialization > Print Preferences
  2. Click the camera icon and browse to your logo file
  3. If you need to change the size or location of the logo, find your layout and adjust using the steps below.

 

For all other Orchestratedreports

  1. Open the Report & Layout Manager by going to Administration > Setup > General > Report & Layout Manager
  2. Find the layout or report that you wish to adjust by navigating through the module tree
  3. Naming the new layout or report
    1. If you are using the OnDemand environment, rename the report to something that identifies that it has been customized (generally company initials - report name)
    2. If you are an Enterprise customer, you will be given the option to 'Save As' upon completing the modification.
    3. Regardless of your software platform or method, you will want to give your modified document a name that differs from the stock crystal report name, or it may be overwritten upon an Orchestrated update
  4. Once you have given your document a new name, click on the 'Update' button to save the changes, and then click on the 'Edit' button to launch the Crystal Reports editor.
  5. Once Crystal Reports launches, you may then make your logo adjustments:
    1. For logos tied to your system's database (layouts)
      1. Simply hover over the image, then click and drag to expand or shrink the logo size
    2. For report logos not tied to the database
      1. Click on the existing logo file and press delete (this will delete and remove the OBeer logo); then
      2. From within Crystal Reports go to Insert > Picture, and browse to the logo you wish to add to the document.
