Just like with tasks, I would like to create and use dummy reports. The reason for this is so the icons in the application are better ordered. Tasks are with other tasks and reports with other reports.
The reason we need a dummy report is to start a process flow. The process flow then activates a task that will insert a row in a sort of Queue table. This queue table will limit the selection of rows that DevExpress will use to make it's report; thus making the process a lot faster.
So this task need to be run before opening the report. But the task cannot be the starting point for the process flow and therefor we need to use a dummy report.
