With the release of Sage 300 2016, the Sage Intelligence Reporting component received several enhancements. In this article, we’ll take a look at what the changes are and how they benefit you as a Sage 300 customer.
A good majority of the changes in 2016 have been made to the Sage Intelligence Report Designer. The end result of these changes are more options and flexibility in creating new reports that are customized to your specific needs.
Right out of the gate when you launch the designer, you’re greeted by a new instruction sheet that provides a nice overview of the designer tools and options. You can modify an existing report or create a brand new report from scratch.
You can also choose to leverage the native Layout Generator for quick and easy standard report designs. Or if you’re a spreadsheet “power user”, you might prefer to leverage the power of rows, columns, lists, formulas, and reporting trees using the Sage Intelligence Task Pane directly in Excel.
In addition to the new interface in the Report Designer, a number of time-saving functional enhancements have been added as well.
A new Missing Accounts feature automatically detects and identifies accounts from your system that may have been inadvertently excluded from your Sage Intelligence report.
To clean up your reports and reduce visual clutter, a new ‘Exclude Zero Rows’ checkbox option has been added. Last, the new Dynamic Account Ranges feature detects any changes in your Sage 300 General Ledger and automatically includes those changes at run time so your reports are always up-to-date without any extra manual effort.
Everything from the Layout Generator and Sage Intelligence interface to the reports themselves have a completely new and modernized look and feel. But more than just good looks, these changes also include vast improvements in report speed and performance.
