Formating reports for printing

Operational Reporting

Did you ever run a Salesforce report then export the report to Excel then format the report so it looks nice for management by adding headers and footers, bolding, centering, etc? Then after the report looks beautiful you then realize you ran the report with the incorrect date range so you have to start all over again. Well it happens to us all the time. Our organization has the need to print standard reports on a daily basis. However, I have not found a way to print user friendly versions of these reports. We need to have the report on legal landscape with column headings, page numbers, etc. Staff cannot continue to export to Excel and then format the report each time before printing. Connect for Office is not a solution for us. It would be nice if Salesforce added a feature to the reporting component that will allow users to create report format templates and associate the report to a template. Once the template is created, we will then only need to rerun the report using new date ranges. I am sure there are many users out there who can benefit from report templates.
