How to Use Placeholders in Print Destination Settings

You can use Docentric Placeholders in any print destination where it makes sense (Output File Name, Email address, Email Body, etc.). There are two kinds of Print Destination Placeholders at our disposal – Standard and Custom Placeholders. The main difference is that you can use Standard Placeholders out-of-the-box with no coding.

If the Standard Placeholders don’t meet your needs, you can define your own Custom Placeholders for a particular report and implement them by extending the overrideReportRunSettings() method of the report DSP (Data Source Provider) class.

The use of Standard and Custom Placeholders in print destinations are the same for both Docentric SSRS and Basic reports. Read the How-to manual here.
