Report Manager Version 6.1.5932 Released

Enhancements Include:

  • Added support for OpenXML for Word.  We already have OpenXML support for powerpoint and excel, with this edition we have added word.  OpenXML does not require the MS Interop Libraries and is significantly faster at build complex reports.
  • Added OSPROCESSGUID as system variable.
  • Added Tableau 9.2 support.
  • Added enhancements to HTTP Handler for execution of reports using a URL.
  • Auto Execute Folders.  This adds the ability to allow users to build templates and simply drop them into a folder and have RM build reports from them.  The end user never needs to login to RM.  This allows for end user self service reporting for simple reports.

Report Manager Version 6.1.5895 Released

Added the following new features:

  • Template tasks can now generate HTML from Powepoint or Excel output. This HTML can be easily placed into emails without any scripting.  Excel HTML generation now includes images if they exist on the sheet.  This was only available in QuickMerge tasks but is not also available in Template Report Tasks.
  • Attached Files in Group Tasks.  You can now store files (typically templates, powerpoint, excel, word files) with your group task.  This keeps everything together in one place for a report.  These attached files are automatically copied to the Group Task TEMP folder each time the group task or one of the group task children are executed.  Exporting a group task and importing it to another server also copied any attached files.
  • Dynamic Pivot Tables.  You can now dynamically update a pivot table without losing the selected filters, row, and column settings.

Report Manager Version 6.1.5884 Released

Add a few new features:

• Auto Execute Folders – Added the ability for Report Manager to monitor NTFS folders where a given folder has been tied to a Report Manager Task. When a new file is created in the monitored folder the given Report Manager task is executed. The user name is derived from the File Owner. The Template file and filename are passed into the Report Manager task as Report Manager system variables. This allows for end users to create simple Excel and Powerpoint templates and simply drop them into a NTFS folder which will cause Report Manager to scoop them up and execute a given Report Manager task. When used with Dynamic Tags allows a user to self serve adding QlikView and Tableau data and images to their Powerpoint and Excel templates without any direct access to Report Manager.

• Added ability to override folder on xmlimport. By default tasks imported go into the folders they came from if that folder exists, otherwise they go into the default folder. With this override you can pick a folder on import and the tasks will go into thtat folder.

• Added support to Word tags in Word Text boxes. Also added to the API the ability to change word text boxes.

• Fixed issue with tags when cut and pasted into office were white letters and not visible on a white background. They are not black.
