I hope you can add a PDF generator soon. That would make this plug-in PERFECT for me. :grin:

Hi there,

it is in plan for sure. Though seems like it is feasible only for the DOCX report, the excel format keeps ruining the layout when we try to generate PDF out of it, independent from the library we try to use.


can generate date in native date excel

Hi there, thank you for your inquiry, and sorry for the delay.

The date is genereated as string (at least in current version), but can be easily then converted to Date on Excel side.

Is there an ETA for the watermark/logo feature for print & PDF download?

Hi there, thank you for your inquiry, and sorry for the delayed reply,

We do have a plan to implement PDF support, but unfortunately do not have any approximate ETA – rather than it for sure won’t happen quite soon.

We’re finally getting round to getting this report builder set up but whatever we try (we created a working docx + xlsx template) the reportbuilder will always create the doc with only the web displayed data​, not the whole table/data.

The strange thing is that we can’t seem to set the ‘Follow table filtering:’ to ‘off. If we do, it still saves with that ticked and Even when we change that setting in the db directly, going to the report builder shows it ticked still/again.

Please advise​


Hi there, thank you for your inquiry,

There was a bug related to that in 1.1 version – today we published version 1.1.1, which should resolve this issue – please check.


Just tried but got even worse. v1.1.1 throws a blank page only. Last proper working version seems to be v1.0.3 (which we had to put back now.

Hi there,

Did you de-activate and then activate the plugin again? Are you running wpDataTables 2.0.2?

Thank you

Is it possible to use the Gravity Signature Add on – it works that the filename is inserted in the wptable, but after that I want to use your report builder to insert the signature in a word document – how can I do? Is it possible?


Unfortunately at the moment dynamically adding images to the docs and spreadsheets generated by Report Builder isn’t supported. We are looking into implementing this feature, but unfortunately for the moment it wouldn’t be possible even as a custom solution.

That’s okay.

Are there inculude these?

Do work this plugin this ways?

- Main site : Laravel - Sub-site (under folder) : Wp - We create PDF REPORT on sub-wp-site

Hi there, thank you for your inqiury,

For the moment unfortunately PDF reports aren’t supported. We plan to add these soon for the DOCX-based reports.

Otherwise you can install the product (and the main plugin - wpDataTables) in the WP site, and use it to generate reports based on the parent DB as wpDataTables can access the DB directly.
