[[File:TinyTafel-ReportOptions-filtered-51.png|thumb|373px|right|Tiny Tafel - Report Options tab - with custom filter]]The {{man label|Tiny Tafel}} report (ListeEclair) provides a compact way of describing listing the main surnames found in a place and describing showing what years those surnames were found in that place. It helps Genealogists determine if they might have overlapping research materials that could be shared from a family genealogy database. ==Background==[[File:TinyTafel-ReportOptions-defaults-51.png|thumb|350px|right|Tiny Tafel - Report Options tab - with Custom Place filter]]The concept was to catalog areas of interest in genealogical research collections. It was a compromise between rows which can be read by humans and those that can be automatically interpreted by computers using a Tafel Matching System.  This report in Gramps is not in the classic Tiny Tafel format. Rather, it is the same category of encouraging research collaboration. Objectives are collated in a form intended for sharing on the '''[https://www.genealogie.mu/?option=com_sppagebuilder&view=page&id=41 CousinsGenWeb]''', a French genealogy service circa 2012. The Report output is suitable for pasting into the body of an e-mail or posting to Social Networking Services.  However, the filtering has limited utility. While you could filter to just the Places where a particular group of Ancestor resided, the report still returns rows with ALL surnames logged in those Places, in all eras. You cannot limit to all surnames you've recorded in each place while your Ancestors were also residents. Nor can you limit it to listing just the Surnames in one branch of the Tree.  {{man tip|The English report name uses Loan words from German and French|The term "tafel" is a German word meaning "Table". "Liste Eclair" is a French phrase meaning "Lighting List.}}
== Usage ==

The defaults (without any filters) generated a report running over 24 pages when using the [[Example.gramps|Example.gramps]] sample tree. To winnow down to a single page sample report, an arbitrary custom filter was applied. It uses a {{man label|[[Gramps_{{man version}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Filters#Places_Category_2|Places with a reference count of ''<11>'']]}} rule. ''This is a completely useless custom filter for any collaboration goal. But it gave a predictably small report length.''
