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.
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 :)
you can see what I mean here http://screencast.com/t/PzFHhkIqa7oR
As a user utilizing the Report Server product, I need to use a single instance of it to serve two or more completely separated divisions/clients so that they do not have access to each other's assets, so that I do not have to make two different deployments of the server and support them. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multitenancy
> Ability to build directories for storing reports; and allow assigning user permissions per user. > So, Application A, will have its reports in Directory A; Application B, will have its reports in Directory B. > It will be a plus if you support a hierarchy or sub-directories. > It will be a plus if you add user group, to be assign by group.
Built-in option to select all available values of a multivalue report parameter. A Multi-value parameter can use a user function to have a value accumulating all available values. Add built-in support through the expression engine.
I could not see the feature "Fast loading of reports" anywhere in the Report Server as like in SSRS Processing Options. How is that working in the Telerik Report Server ? Thanks, R. Venkatesan
No matter what I try, I get this error when previewing a report: An error has occurred while processing Report 'SomeReport': Unable to establish a connection to the database. Please, verify that your connection string is valid. In case you use a named connection string from the application configuration file, make sure the name is correct and the connection string settings are present in the configuration file of your application. ------------- InnerException ------------- Format of the initialization string does not conform to specification starting at index 0. However, everything works great while in the designer. Any info would help. Thanks, -John
