In 2012 we used to be able to generate group reports and view them within the browser with the nice box view (you could click on the box and drill into that report). The Group reports also allowed you to generate multiple reports to excel. Would be good to have this function back. Most companies have multiple reports that make up their month end pack and the ability to send them all (even if its just Financial level) to excel rather then go into each one and export would be a huge time saver.

Thank you for your feedback.

Currently this is not in our roadmap; however, we are tracking it and if we get more feedback and votes, we may consider it in the future.

I am not sure why this return of deprecated feature has not received more votes? What Accountant/Finance Manager in a company that justifies D365FO does not run a series of financial reports, reviews and analyses them, then sends them out as a pack after any corrections have been made? A bread and butter monthly task which is laborious and inefficient without the feature, especially when multiple subsidiaries are involved.

I can only assume that this ideas forum is poorly supported and/or experienced users have given up in frustration at Microsoft's lack of understanding what their customers actually do with the product & its features.

At minimum, they need to list the features deprecated between Management Reporter 2012 and D365 Financial Reports and the add-on.
