Our team is working with TelerikReporting with reports we write in Visual Studio rather than designing them directly in the tool. This lets us do version control which is important to us. It's working well for us. However, it would be much smoother a simple change: - when you upload a report, you should have the option to overwrite the definition of an existing report. Otherwise you have to:- - delete the report you are updating - because there are schedules atached, you have to delete those as well - recreate the report - recreate the schedule You can understand why this is time consuming.
We are disappointed with the lack of SSRS improvements over the last 8 years. We use data driven reports extensively. For example, every day at 10am we run some report that emails everyone a list of items in their inbox from a custom application that routes them a task they need to act on. The problem we experience is that there is no way to flag an item as "emailed" successfully. So we end up either writing our queries to only select the previous 24 hours worth of data, or we write the select of the data inside an SP that also updates the data to mark them as "emailed" even though if there is a problem rendering the report or a problem contacting the email server, the emails won't actually go out. Basically if we could have a data driven subscription, and while the server is looping through the data, sending off emailed reports, we could get a hook to update status for the item that was just emailed, or just errored during report rendering.
A great feature would be to add security over the connection strings that a user can choose from in the server. We have a development and production environment and we want to allow people to write reports but we don't want them hitting production data because they don't always build efficient queries which can take the production database down. This would help allow access to development and production separately and help keep the DBA from yelling at me :)
As a developer integrating the the Report Server with my solution, I would like to be able to apply a fully customizable Kendo theme to the Report Server server app so that it can blend fully with my applications.
Could the 'From' email address in Preview Email functionality be self populated from the 'Mail Server' SMTP settings in configuration? This way the users do not need to a) remember the email address; and b) type it each time they are emailing a report.
After changing the culture settings on the server machine to EN-GB (which should display the date in dd/MM/yyyy format), the Preview of the report parameters still shows the date format as default, in US format (MM/dd/yyyy).
However, I would not expect to have modified the code to fix this, it should be a configurable option and/or take local server formatting.
We have configured our Report Server Application Pool to run in 64-bit mode, to enable the server to utilize more available memory on the server, which has helped with some particularly large reports that were previously erroring out. However, when scheduling the same reports, it seems the Report Server Service Agent has the same issue, as it runs in 32-bit mode and we are frequently the error "Error details: Exception of type 'System.OutOfMemoryException' was thrown". Is there a way to configure the Service Agent in 64-bit mode?
Hello, I would like to be able to search within the report datasource on the right hand side of the viewer. I have a lot of fields to search. Thank you.
In order to provide better data-driven subscriptions implementation, the subscribers of a Scheduled Task or Data Alert should be modified dynamically. Currently they are a static list of emails, which is not convenient when a report must be sent to a whole group of users in an organization, because the group members can constantly fluctuate. Report Server should provide the option to declare an external data retrieval service in the ST/DA subscribers list. This service could be a REST API endpoint or a file path that will return the list with the subscriber emails.
Thank you for adding this feature. I tested this feature and found that emails were not being delivered to email addresses in the 'CC' email address field. Furthermore, would it be possible to look in to these options? 1. Add 'BCC' email address field option 2. Add multiple email addresses under 'MAIL SERVER' in Configuration - This will allow us to add SMTP email services for multiple companies / clients, which can then be utilised in the 'FROM' email field in the Preview Report Email feature. It is great that Telerik takes on feedback and is continuously updating the software to provide an excellent service to its users. Thank you.
