  • The Crystal Report Field inserts are the constants field used in your Crystal Report. With these inserts, you can customize the recipient messaging and subject, and the Gizmo destination. 
  • You can also customize the messaging the recipient receives. Using Crystal Report Fields Inserts, IntelliFront BI will automatically pull data from your crystal report and use it to customize the subject, body or report format.
