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.
To localize the reports I now set the Localizable parameter to true and Culture an Language options to nl-NL (for the Netherlands).
So for Dutch customers that will be alright, but when I want to send a report to an English customer I must now make a second report with en-EN.
It will be nicer when I can change that in the schedule.
When I do a sort or filtering in the report section on the server and I edit a report (f.i. add revision) the sorting and filtering is gone.
It's much nicer to keep the sorting and or filtering
The Whitelabeling option are extremely limited.
I would like to see more customization available like removing the sidebar completely, or based on user settings / roles - as well as the top title bar (where logo is).
Customizable themes would go a long way.
Being able to integrate the existing report server pages into our own website would cut down on a lot of work.
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.
I recently upgraded our Report Server that was hosted in IIS with an HTTPS binding but after the upgrade we were unable to communicate with the server using HTTPS. We received an invalid client id error.
We updated the bindings and everything worked. However, it would be nice if we could upgrade Report Server without changing the IIS bindings.
Provide the option to save custom report settings in the storage and enable specific rendering device settings based on custom settings.
Example use case:
- on the Report Server - Report view, the user should have a button for report settings;
- this button will open a custom dialog that contains various inputs;
- clicking Save on the custom dialog, the save operation will be handled by the Report Server implementor and the implementor should be able to get the user input and save various settings in the Report Server storage for the selected report;
- on rendering the report through the Preview, Scheduled Task, or Data Alert, the report server engine should invoke a custom event/code that can read the storage report settings and based on them provide rendering device settings to use during the report rendering.
