Report Inspector

Similar to the page inspector, we would like to have a report inspector. The report inspector should allow us to see: - The ID and Name of the current report - The current selected layout (ID, Name, Type) of the report - The Dataset, it's values, and applied filters, of the current report - Any ...

Thank you for your feedback. We have built a feature in 2021 Wave 2 that supports saving report dataset to Excel, either for use by developers, consultants or power users as part of developing report layouts (i.e., similar to About this Report known from the Windows client, but in Excel instead), or for use by end customers to export report data to Excel for further processing, e.g., filtering or pivoting. This feature can be tried out in the insider build  artifacts already for vnext/v19 (use "Save as Microsoft Excel (data only)" option in report request page), but as we plan and hope to also backport this to a 2021 Wave 1 minor (currently targeting v18.3) due to demand and usefulness, this idea is marked for April 2021 release for now.

Update July 6th 2021: 
We have shipped this in Minor Update 18.3. See Docs for more: Working with Reports, Batch Jobs, and XMLports - Business Central | Microsoft Docs

One of the biggest lack on D365BC SaaS is the direct printing functionality. On scenarios like warehouse and production having the possibility to direct print a report to a local printer is a must to have. Why not creating a functionality for that? It could be possible to handle this scenario wit...

Publish more data for PowerBi, specifically for Dimensions report

We would like to be able to do reporting in PowerBi on Dimensions.  Currently, the dimension set ID field from table 20 is not published on page 20 that we can publish to PowerBi.   

This would make reporting much easier with Excel and PowerBi.

One cool thing about the upcoming PAGE filtering feature is that we will be able again to 'type' (search) a field name we would like to filter on, instead of selecting by mouse. Can we imagine similar behavior for the REPORT request page filtering as well? Being able to just type to search for...
