When I launch a BIP report from Siebel it pops up a new Siebel screen where you can specify some parameters like Output type (PDF, RTF...) and Language (ENU, ESP...). This is selection steps are what i want to skip and run straight the report with the standard specifications.
Using the BIP Business Service you can do any configuration you want. We have implemented a process whereby draft case reports are done through normal BIP process and visible only to the author but when signed off are added to a Case Report tab visible to the entire team all at the push of a button which also changes Case status and other processes.
See Siebel BI Publisher 8 Reports Business Service [ID 823360.1] for implementation and example.
It is supposedly in the fix pack for 220.127.116.11 which I am setting a sandpit server up to test this week. Check the MR Guide for more details.
