Customizable Fact Sheets with Sub-Types

Some of the advantages of using Sub-Types of the same Fact Sheet type include:

  • Working with a Lean data model
  • Minimal changes needed on the existing data model, yet filtering and reporting per specific Sub-Type are possible
  • Attributes and Relations can be modeled separately per Sub-Type
