Creating a Custom Report Template in SSRS

When we start creating reports at the enterprise level, we need to ensure the consistency in the look and feel of reports throughout the organization. For example, the header of all reports should have the company logo and address whereas the footer should have other company information or page layout information across all reports in a consistent manner. Now the challenge is, at the enterprise level there might be several departments/developers creating reports, so how do you ensure report layout consistency?
Fortunately, SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) allows us to create standard/custom report templates with the desired report layout and use the same custom template every time when creating a new report. With this, you can ensure consistent report layout across departments of the organization, for more information click here.
