  1. Report Storage/Naming

    There needs to be a way to separate reports out into actual folder like structures not just tagging/adding them to categories. In a multi-tenancy environment if you have 2 or more users creating reports and they cannot see what reports exist, you have a user, (say user A), create a report and gives it a name say Annual YTD Balances. Now you have user B, who can't see what user a created, but also tries to give the report the same exact name, you get an error. This is a major issue if you have users with roles that can't…

  2. ActiveReports running on Amazon/Google infrastructures

    Amazon has .NET SDKs to their services which could be used to build ActiveReports SaaS reporting solution using Amazon computing resources. The same is feasible with Google Cloud, but AFAIK now SDKs are available only for Java (so maybe this requires .net interop to run AR engine). What do you think about such use cases for ActiveReports?

  3. Add the ability to sechedule to run a single report with several variations of parameters at one

    Right now I have a report which needs to be run for several different sets of parameters. It would be great if there was a quick way to produce saved PDF versions of a particular report utilizing several different combinations of parameters.

    This would save me and my users so much time and hassle.

  4. Type in drop-down selection

    My use case is that I have a particularly long list of options when I am specifying parameters for a particular report, and I want to be able to type in the first few letters of the word and have Active Reports bring up the records in the list that begin with those letters.

    e.g. I am getting prompted to select the name of a particular person from a list of salesmen for a performance report. There are 100 salesmen in my company. Currently I have to scroll through the entire list to find John Doe, but it would be…

    Makes perfect sense I think we should add it. We’ll try to get this on the roadmap later this year.

  5. User Roles

    For the roles setup on ActiveReports, I would like to see roles locked down by Data “Model”. So when you setup a new role, you select what Data Models can be used for that role. Other Roles would be a view only role where the end user can just run report, a designer role (edit all report) and then a designer role (restricted) where they can just edit reports that they created…not other people’s reports.

  6. Improvements to Report Schedules: multiple reports in same email and ability to drop blank reports

    Currently, I have a report set up with about 20 scheduled tasks that all run at the same time every week. It is the same report that gets run with a different set of parameters. Sometimes, a few of the reports come up blank because nothing meets the parameters. This is expected, but it would be nice if there was a way to keep blank reports from getting sent. These reports get sent straight to my client, and it would be better if they did not receive blank reports. Also, they currently get 20 separate emails, but it would be…

    Thanks for the ideas Brian. We’ll take a closer look at the feasibility of this when we plan for a new round of features.
