When you want to provide a narrative to the charts, tables and maps in an LG Inform Plus report, you can save time typing out each point manually by using text tokens instead. Text tokens are short strings of code that automatically pull numbers and text straight from the database based on a few simple parameters, and they're incredibly easy to use thanks to the text token editor.

Text tokens ensure that a report is always up to date, and can also help when producing reports for neighbouring wards. If you've ever used mail merge on Microsoft Word or have used text tokens before, you'll have a good understanding of how text tokens work.
