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:
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.
