    Please advise:

    I created a report record via the interface but it doesn’t show up in the print dropdown.

    In settings -> actions -> reports, I added a new record:

    Name: My Test

    Service Name: my_po_reports

    Object: purchase.order

    Report Type: pdf

    Report file: purchase/report/order.rml (i’m reusing an existing one just to test)
    But My Test does NOT show up when I go to purchase order form!

    I also tried the same in aeroo reports without any result:

    In settings -> actions -> aeroo reports -> reports, I added a new record:

    Name: My Test

    Service Name: my_po_report

    Object: purchase.order

    Template type: odt Output type: odt

    Template source: file Template path: myfolder/reports/template.odt
    What am I missing?
