    Thank you for this suggestion! We’re definitely open to doing this as we are fans of ASP.NET MVC too. It will be great if you can give some specific examples of the MVC helpers that you would find helpful (heh, heh :) ) I would also like to know what you might expect their output and options to be too. This would help us a great deal to deliver the most useful tool for you.

    Thanks for that feedback. I have put something on our roadmap to add MVC and pure HTML support. However, after speaking with our dev team this is not as simple as I expected. Apparently we have a highly optimized embedding script for the viewer & designer that we'll have to refactor a bit internally to provide an easy to use pure HTML or MVC solution. We will do it, but I can't provide a time frame just yet.

    However, if this is critical for you please call or email our support team and refer them to this suggestion and if needed we can help walk you through how to do any of these things manually with the current version.

    In short:

    1: The HTML-based viewer we can do with our web services and can give you some internal sample code we have to get you started.
    2: This is more involved, but we have a sample that gives a good start if you want to do it yourself, and later we'll provide a first-class pure HTML5 viewer (we have this code in our new mobile portal, we just need to repackage it for desktops too).
    3: We can help you get this working now if you contact support directly. It will be some really ugly HTML template but we can help you get through it. Later we'll provide a cleaner way to do this.

    Dane:

    Thanks for the question. I'll try to clarify. For the crosstab/matrix control inside of a report (described in this idea), it will be a special table that could have columns based on data. For example, you could make "Task Type" a "column" and the various task types ("Revision", etc.) will expand horizontally as columns; One column for each task type in the database.

    In your example, if "Bob" didn't receive any tasks, he will still show up as a row unless you apply a filter to remove recipients with zero tasks. Same with tasks types: Even if a particular task type (e.g. "Revision") has no recipients, it would appear as a column, unless you apply a filter to remove those task types that have no recipients.

    Since you can use Prompts/parameters in filters, you could also make those recipient rows task type columns dynamic at runtime too.

    Thanks for the straight feedback Dane, I really appreciate it. And I especially like the feature name "Magic Run-Time Optimization" :)

    @Dane: BTW: The table will not split table columns/words in the middle. If a column would land in between pages, it will always move a column to begin on the next page, so long as the column has a width that is less than the width of the page.

    We do have intuitive snaplines now that make it easier to size the table directly to the edge of the page, but it sounds like you want something more:

    Would it be fair to say you want tables to default to "snapping" to the width of the page by default? And if the page size or orientation is changed you want it to stay snapped to the page edges (with columns resizing according to their percentage). Correct?

    So to clarify: If we added the ability to "Select All" as a default for "In List" filters (that would select all values that are available at the time the report is actually run in the future), this would meet your needs. Correct?

    We’re considering this one. I’d love to know if other customers out here are interested. If so please vote!

    Good point Dane. You can do this now with multiple groupings. This feature would be for making it possible without multiple groupings.

    For those voting for pie charts, it will be great if you can help us understand your use case. Specifically, we'd like to know what is the story behind the data that you're trying to present? Is it a comparison (e.g. which region has the most customers)? Are you trying to show how various parts contribute to a total (how does each product's sales contribute to total sales)?

    This will help us make sure we implement the best feature for the use case.

    Thanks for the votes everyone. Please keep your feedback coming. Any use cases of how you will use this chart type would also be greatly appreciated.

    Marc:

    To make sure I understand your request fully: Today you can do this, but it requires visiting each model and selecting which roles have access. Instead you want to be able to edit a Role and select which Models (and which permissions) that Role has to each model. Is that correct?

    Also, how many models, roles, and users are you expecting to deal with in production?
