The material Einar Karlssen and I created for the Interconnect 2016 Plan Ahead and Act Proficiently for Reporting session is available on Slideshare in addition of being available via Interconnect Mobile Application
This alongside the best practice articles Kumar just posted can be used as a frame of reference for building documents with RPE.
I’ve received this from Nancy Rundlet and I’d like to share it here. I’m glad to see that at least one of the sessions will cover document generation with RPE.

Many thanks to Dr. Einar Karlsen for his pioneering work with RPE which is distilled into this material. Unfortunately for reasons outside his control Dr. Karlsen will not attend Interconnect this year so I am tasked with sharing this wonderful information alone.
Looking forward to see you on Monday, 22nd of Feb from 12PM.
The links in the 3 minute videos post have been updated as two of the videos have been re-edited.
DISCLAIMER: the videos are actually slightly longer than 3 minutes so please don’t use them as timers for boiling your favorite 3 minute eggs.
