Generating Word reports

It can be nice and practical to have the contents of a BriefBuilder model as a Word report. Below, we will explain how you can make a Word report of the entire model or of specific parts of it.

Please note: Word reports contain requirements only. If you want to include information about analysis, verification and/or RFC’s, you can download the related tables in Excel.

Word report – entire model

You can get a Word report of the entire model by click on the icon on the project homepage (in the upper right corner).

Once you have clicked on the icon, you will get a pop-up in which you can select which parts of the model you want to add to your Word report, and whether you would like to include the comments in the model or not.

Depending on the size of the model, it may take some time to download the report. You can find the report in the download folder of your computer.

Word report – per tree

Word reports can be generated for each of the trees in BriefBuilder by clicking on the icon that can be found in the little menu above the tree.

Depending on the size of the tree, it may take some time to download the report. You can find the report in the download folder of the device you are using BriefBuilder with.

Options

When generating the report, you have the option to include/exclude the following items:

  • Project home (as a front page)
  • Requirement IDs
  • Comments
  • Images (whether you want to show them visually, or just the image name)
  • Files download (whether you want all attached files in separate zip file)
  • Include directly related objects (i.e., the office chairs directly related to a meeting room in the space tree that you are generating the report from)
The pop-up that appears when generating a Word report directly from any of the trees in the main menu.
