Navigation in the preview window. When you design a report, you may define elements that will form a document outline. The outline will be displayed in the preview window. When you click an outline item, the preview will be scrolled to that specified item. You may also define active items that will respond to mouse clicks. This can be used to navigate to another report element or to an external URL
Interactive reports. You can define an action that will be performed when a user clicks an object in the preview window. For example, you can build and preview another report with detailed information about the item that was clicked
