We are trying to customize IFS standard report layouts. To modify standard layouts we have to use IFS Report Designer. This tool is not user friendly, Is there any other tool which can customize IFS report layouts?

If you want to modify IFS standard report layout, you must use IFS Report Designer. But IFS supports several 3rd party report layouts and most popular one is Crystal Reports.  

In this case you have to create the layout from scratch. There are some guidelines you have to follow if you want to replace IFS standard report layout with crystal layout. You can find the detailed instructions in IFS Technical Documentation:  IFS Development Guide -> Reporting -> Operational Report Development -> Crystal Reports as Operational Reports   After this, you can register the report layout under Report Definitions, Layouts
