A Briefing Book is a collection of static or updatable snapshots of :
- and BI Publisher reports (for 11G)
It allows that content to be viewed by anyone with Briefing Book reader software.
The Briefing Book provides a way to see content offline, or share it with others.
Briefing Books have the same look and feel as a dashboard page. Multi-page Briefing Books have paging controls and are well-suited for presenting information to others.
Briefing Books provide a way to archive the information in a dashboard and can be saved locally on a user’s desktop.
You can download briefing books in PDF or MHTML format for printing and viewing. You also can update, schedule, and deliver briefing books using agents.
Users have the option to make Briefing Books “updateable” so they can be refreshed with up-to-date information from the corresponding dashboard with a single click on demand.
A briefing book navigation link is a special type of link that can be added to a dashboard using the Dashboard Editor. When a briefing book navigation link is found in content included in a briefing book, the destination content for that link is also included in the briefing book.
