Modifying report types in workflows

Modify Report Type can be added to workflows, where it can be particularly useful in cases where the same tool is present in the workflow multiple times.

Consider the example workflow in figure 37.27.

Figure 37.27: An example workflow running two trimming jobs. The name of each trim element is different but the underlying tool is the same, so the reports generated have the same type. The report types are then modified, and reports with the modified type are used as input to the next step.
