Many of our reporting options allow you to include the headline of the article and a snippet of text in the report. If you would like to modify the auto-generated text to the text of your choosing follow the instructions below.

NOTE: Your username must be set to a System Administrator in order to see this capability. 

Next to the text snippet and headline you will see a  pencil icon as detailed in the image below. If the pencil icon is blue, the headline or snippet can be edited. However, for content from Lexis Nexis, Twitter, and CEDROM, the pencil icon will be gray indicating that the content is not editable due to copyright requirements.

In the examples, below, the pencil option in blue indicating that headline and text snippet can be edited.

The example below is from a print article brought in from Lexis Nexis.  In this case, the pencil icon is greyed out indicating that the content cannot be edited due to copyright restrictions.
