Include Reports (tick_24Pro, cross_24Std, cross_24Lite)

Include Reports Options

Grand Totals Report - Check this box to include a grand total report. This report may include such items as the total number of documents with errors, the total number of errors, the total number of documents with warnings, the total number of warnings, the total number of documents with no errors or warnings, the total number of documents with one or more bad links, the total number of bad links, the total number of documents processed, the total processing time, and the report creation date. The information displayed may vary depending on the tool that is used. This option is enabled by default.

Summary Report - Check this box to include a summary report at the beginning of each and every report page. The summary report will have three sections listing 1) documents that have errors, 2) documents that have warnings (but no errors), 3) documents that have no errors or warnings, and (if checking links) 4) documents that have bad links. Except for page 0 of the report (which contains a complete summary report), the summary reports may only be a partial summary report that is only for reports contained on that specific page. Targets listed in the summary report will be linked to their individual reports so that you can click on the target and go directly to a target's report. Documents listed as having no errors or warnings will not be linked to their individual reports if Include reports only for documents containing errors or warnings is checked because no report will be generated for that document. This option is enabled by default.

In Summary Report, list documents containing no errors or warnings or no bad links - Check this box to include a list of documents that contain no errors and no warnings in the summary report when the validator tool is used. If this box is unchecked, then the number of documents that would have been listed will be displayed instead. Note that on the complete summary report page ("page 0" which is also known as the complete summary page), documents with no errors and no warnings are not listed at all if this option is not checked. On partial summary reports (pages greater than 0), documents with no errors and no warnings are not listed if this option is not checked AND the document does not have any report on the page, whether it be a validation message report or a link report. This means that the document will still be listed in the partial summary report if there is a report for it on the page. This option works similarly for the link check tool, causing documents to be listed in the "no bad links" section if checked, or not listed if unchecked and there is no link report. This option is useful to uncheck if there is a long list of documents with no errors and no warnings and you don't care to know what they are or you want to minimize the size of the report. This option is enabled by default.
 
NOTE: In the Enterprise edition when generating XML output, this option only affects complete summary reports, not partial ones. In partial ones, all documents are included in the partial report, regardless of this option, even if they contain no errors or warnings.

Include Message Reports only for documents containing errors or warnings - Check this box to remove message reports that don't contain errors or warnings. This decreases the size of the complete report if any targets do not have errors or warnings. If this box is checked, then reports for targets that have messages and comments but no errors or warnings will still not cause a message report to be generated. Therefore, you will not see the messages and comments generated by a target that does not have any errors or warnings if this option is checked. This option will not prevent link reports from being displayed if link checking is enabled and bad links are found. This option is enabled by default.

Other Reports

'Duplicate Meta Descriptions' Report - Check this report to list targets that have the same meta description text. Works only with the validator tool and with a config file that sets $metadesctext to the document's meta description text. Using this option increases memory usage which might be an issue with large numbers of targets. This option is enabled by default. (New v11.00)

'Duplicate Page Titles' Report - Check this report to list targets that have the same document title text. Works only with the validator tool and with a config file that sets $documenttitletext to the document's title text. Using this option increases memory usage which might be an issue with large numbers of targets. This option is enabled by default. (New v11.00)

'Important Messages/Errors From Job Run' Report - Check this box to report the important messages and error messages that were generated during the job run (these messages are usually highlighted in red). This option is enabled by default. (New v10.0120)
