Default Report Destinations in GP Reports Viewer 
New build of GP Reports Viewer available for GP 2010

Our team has been hard at work over the last few months to introduce new functionality to GP Reports Viewer that we have had a lot of requests for - default report destinations! 


With default report destinations you can specify the default printer, number of copies, e-mail message and even the file attachment name for each of your reports. Users still have the option of changing report destinations when generating reports, but having defaults can significantly speed up the process of running reports.

To make working with the new default report destinations even easier, we have also redesigned the main GP Reports Viewer window so that now only one click is needed to send your report to the desired destination: 

one click 

You can now click the Preview button to see the report on the screen, the E-mail button to create an email message with your report as a PDF attachment or use the Printer button to send the report directly to the default printer (just like the Quick Print in MS Office). 


You can still choose the Destination button to select your report destination manually, but we think that users will really appreciate having these time saving shortcuts!  And if you have reports set up to launch from GP or 3rd party windows using Report Shortcuts, the new default report destinations will work when printing those, as well. 


The new GP Reports Viewer build that has these enhancements is build 60 and is available only for Dynamics GP 2010.  You can download it from our downloads page, which will also have an updated User Guide and Release Notes available.

How to add a sparkline to a report in SSRS

Sample SSRS report with a sparkline

By: Mickie Stamm

This month we have a special treat for you. Sparklines are a very cool feature in SSRS and we did not think we could do them justice in a small newsletter article.  So I have written a blog post on Victoria's blog detailing all the steps on how to create an SSRS report with a sparkline.


The treat, however, is that we also have the completed report available for you to download.  The download link is also in the blog post, or if you want to simply get the report and take a look at it you can download it here.


We hope you like this idea as we would like to continue sharing SSRS and Crystal reports with you in the future.

Looking for a solution to manage Crystal and SSRS reports inside of Dynamics GP quickly and easily?  An online demo of GP Reports Viewer is available anytime on our demo web page.

If you would like to schedule a live demo of GP Reports Viewer with us, please call 212-254-4112 and choose option 1 for Sales or e-mail sales@flex-solutions.com.

You can also download a fully functional trial for the Dynamics GP sample company.  Expiring registration keys are available upon request if you would like to test GP Reports Viewer with your company data.
