Thank you so very much!!

I have installed the PSCB Custom Reports (Contacts) however I am having the same issue that it doesn't show in my navigation menu. I checked my admin_nav_menu_left_css.txt file however I have 3 files which are: admin_nav_menu_left_css.PSCB_AttendanceEnrollment.leftnav.footer.txt
admin_nav_menu_left_css.mba_medLink.leftnav.footer.txt
and the original:
admin_nav_menu_left_css.txt

Can anyone give me advice on which one to modify so that I can get the PSCB Custom Reports (Contacts) to show?

Thanks!

You need to also install and enable the following two plug-ins.

PSCB - Custom Reports (_Home Page)
PSCB - Base Resources

They are installed but still not showing ... Any other ideas?

You may have a customized 'admin_nav_menu_left_css.txt' file that is preventing the PSCB - Custom Reports from appearing.

Go to CPM and check to see if a customized version of the file exists.

I have two - one is customized "admin_nav_menu_left_css.mba_medLink.leftnav.footer.txt " and the other is not customized "admin_nav_menu_left_css.txt"
Would it be the customized version causing the issue?

Do you see this file in the wildcards folder?

'admin_nav_menu_left_css.PSCB_Reports.leftnav.footer.txt'

No - I only have:
admin_nav_menu_left_css.mba_medLink.leftnav.footer.txt
admin_nav_menu_left_css.PSCB_AttendanceEnrollment.leftnav.footer.txt
admin_nav_menu_left_css.txt

You are missing the "admin_nav_menu_left_css.PSCB_Reports.leftnav.footer.txt" file.

This would indicate that the PSCB - Custom Reports (_Home Page) plugin has not been installed and enabled.

Download the plugin and install/enable. You should then see the PSCB Custom Reports link on the left navigation panel.

This is great! Working now and thank you!

I installed the contacts plugin but the tab did not appear in under the Custom Reports Tab. I enabled the plugin and I have the Custom Reports Bundle Base version 4.2.1 installed. Am I missing something?

This would indicate that the PSCB - Custom Reports (_Home Page) plugin has not been installed and enabled.

Download the plugin and install/enable. You should then see the PSCB Custom Reports link on the left navigation panel.

You also need to install the PSCB - Base resources plugin.
The Custom Reports Bundle Base version 4.2.1 contains resources used for the old PDS CRB bundles.

When choosing the Contacts - Duplicates option, I get no results although the screen indicates Total Records: 1, but no record is displayed. Is the duplicates option working?

Thank all so much for this report. It is super helpful. I am trying to run the mailing list under contact and the home address pulls out but the column for mailing address is empty. Where we live 98% of our student/parent population has a PO Box. Any help with getting this to display would be appreciated. Marta Ellsworth, Eagle CO

The report displays the contact's primary email address.

If the the primary box for the email address is not checked, the email address will not appear on the report.
