WebI Design consideration - page mode vs Quick Display mode

just wondering about a WebI report standard - page mode vs quick display mode.

We have everything set up in page mode, per our legacy mindset.

But it seems to me quick display mode is more consumable - you can just scroll down-down-down and quickly consume the info, rather than a manual-like "next page, next page" process which can break up the context.

Common usage is to download to Excel and fiddle with the data, so page mode isn't as important there either. Printing out reports to consume them is old-school, imo. Meaning you get more data on a page to scan through via Quick Display mode

If hard copy was a requirement, then you could easily do that. But bringing it up in Quick Display mode makes it easier to consume online. If you then print, you're good-to-go.

    Your understanding is correct.Page mode is good when report output is expected in PDF for printing.

    If report has more columns and expected result is to just see in BI Launch pad or downoad in excel then Qucik mode is good.
