Our company needs an email to be sent with a PDF and excel sheet as an attachment. With existing feature we could set two emails to be sent. However we have 50 users and 50 reports to be configured. Now i need to set up 100 configurations to cater to both PDF and Excel.
It recently became apparent to us that there are multiple templates for sending email. There is the one that can be customized but it only get customized for internal users. There is also a separate template for external users and it cannot be customized and is common across all reports. All templates need to be customization for each report. Since the Report Server is designed to send to anyone and the licenses are controlled by who can create reports, it makes the ability to send report to users extremely limited.
Background: Our report server database undergoes maintenance every weekend. As part of this, the report server DB is taken down without stopping the Telerik service. When the DB comes back online the reporting service doesn't recognize the re-instated DB and doesn't send out reports. Reply from Telerik Support: My assumption is that the Report Server has hanged due to an error when the Storage was not available. The service has probably remained in this undefined state even after re-starting the database. Note that the Storage is a required resource, hence the service cannot work without it. We have logged the current behavior of Report Server with respect to its Storage database for improvement in our system. Feature request: It would be nice to get an alert/email to the Report server admins that the Report Server DB/Storage is unavailable.
Currently the user interface of the Report Server Manager is english only. This is ok for demo purposes on our side, but in order to offer solutions based on Telerik Report Server to our clients, the complete user interface must support other languages (e.g. german, italian) as well, ideally allowing the user to switch between languages on the fly. Without internationalized Telerik Report Server will be of no user to us or our clients.
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.
It would be great if users didn't need to authenticate with two different web applications. I would use the report server integrated with my current ASP.net website. It would be great if it authenticated and authorized users based on the same roles also.
I'm using Crystal Enterprise for a longtime, and would like to replace it with that tool. On of the most useful feature is scheduling (for time-hungry reports, that takes more than 20 minutes to be generated). It will be a plus if you add: * The ability to choose the Execution start time, and frequancy; and to enable or disable the schedule job without lossing it. * Add a menu item called "Schedule Jobs", to view all schedule jobs of any accessible report (per profile; Admin can see all categories by profiles). * The ability to execute on-demond (execute disabled or enabled schedules for prepared parameters). * The ability to sign the generated PDF. * The ability to send generated PDF to mail (one or more), and to set the mail subject and body. * nerated PDF to folder (local, remote with auth) or FTP.The ability to save the ge * The ability to view schedule execution history, and view its result; and Add option to clear old results. * No "time out" for longer generation process. * Schedule jobs queued per user profiles; * Admin can set priority to user profiles (to execute queued jobs), and can cancel jobs.
Have the ability for reports to be generated at defined intervals and delivered to one or more defined destinations - together. For example, a monthly report pack (consisting of a number of reports) can be sent to a client with all reports attached to the single email or compressed into a single zip file, or merged into a single Excel workbook, or PDF file before delivery.
In the recent R2 build there was an error with respect to no data message. And an error email was sent to all users. Currently, we have set up all users as external subscribers and admins or point of contacts as internal users. I think users shouldn't be receiving these error emails and only internal users should be recieving this. A global configuration should be available to toggle this functionality so that other customers who need emails to be sent to all will be catered to as well.
Data Alerts is a wonderful concept on Report Server. Currently, it only allows emails to be sent when a data alert is triggered. We should allow web hooks to be called when from data alerts. This would make data alerts immensely powerful e.g. it can trigger mobile push notification or even send an SMS when a specific data alert is triggered.
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.
I would like to have the ability to enable report books in the designer of reporting server this would be a big advantage to our company as well plan on making telerik reporting server are main goto product for reporting in house we are impressed so far but a few issues like not be able to produce a work sheet with multple sheets is a big draw back for us I would see it working that you can add muitple tabs in the designer and attach sql data source to each tab this would be great
As a developer integrating the ReportServer into our solution, I want to be able to pull data for reports from my custom business objects model, instead from database, So that I can reuse the data layer I already have along with its business rules.
I extensively use sub reports with drill-down, drill-through actions and to fetch data, into the main report, extracted from different datasets based on a set of certain parameters. When I upload these reports to the server, I assign main and sub reports to two separate categories 'Main' and 'SubR' so that I can manage reports and users' permissions accordingly. Currently, it is not possible to 'hide' the reports under 'SubR' category for a user so that all the sub reports are hidden from view, leaving visibility of main reports only for that user. I tried by restricting user's access to the category 'SubR' so that sub reports are not visible in the list and avoid confusion from user's perspective. But when I restrict user's access to the category 'SubR', all the main reports that contain sub reports do not run correctly and start displaying 'unable to access subreport1...' error. The same error comes up if I have included a report in the main report, accessible by drill-through action. I would like to request for a functionality to 'Hide / Display' reports in conjunction with 'Read' access to the reports. This will provide further granularity to the way the reports can be made accessible and still be hidden from view.
Currently, in my company, we have more than 30 clients and each client has multiple locations and multiple departments. * I have to create like more than 100 schedules now for all individual departments in each location and company. All this company data is in our DB including emails to be sent to etc. manually doing this is a nightmare. * And not to forget I have to manually update the email entry list whenever someone leaves the company or joins the client company. * An idea is to create something like a schedules.config in json format and using JS or C# create schedules in report server automatically. * Same is the case with Data Alerts. * This is a huge pain and kind of show stopper for us.
Though I have overridden the mail template for an individual alert, It is picking up the Configuration | Mail Templates | Data Alert External User for an external email address. However, internal email address gets the right one. Please help me resolve this.
I would to suggest a new features that allow us to manage data sources by username. For example: User1 will render report from active and live data; while User2 can only render reports from archived or data.
