Sitecore Template Report Generator Module at Sitecore MarketPlace

Developers don’t like documentation specially when they have to do itJ, but documentation is equally important for project and organization.

It’s always great if there are tools for generating documents.

I created one such tool which is available on Sitecore MarketPlace and its my first Sitecore tool.

The Sitecore Template Reporting Tool allows you to generate documentation of the templates in the HTML form.

Without this tools a developer require around 10-20 hours to generate such a report depending upon number of templates. However by using this tool one can generate better reports within a minute which ultimately save your time and impress your manager/client with the report.

Steps to generate the report

·         Download and install Sitecore package
·         Package install web page and DLL in bin directory
·         Access your Sitecore instance or website by http://<Instance Name>/TemplateReportGenerator.aspx
·         All template folders are listed in Dropdown list

·         Select one of the template folder for which report need to be generated
·         Click on "Generate Report" button
·         Your report is ready.

This tool generates report in tabular format.
Each template details are displayed in alternate color.
Each template details display as section wise which include below details
·         Template ID
·         Template Created Date time
·         Template Last modified Date time
·         Field names
·         Field Title
·         Field Description
·         Field Type
·         Is Shared Field
·         Is Unversioned

You can also change report aspx file as per your need however I tried my best to include all the details.

In future I have plans to create more such helpful tools. 

Let me know for any query / suggestion / improvements.
