In Management Reporter (AX2012 ->) you had the option to link to Excel sheets to consolidate data from external sources in the reports. This option is currently not available in Dynamics 365 Financial Reports. The request is to integrate Financial Reports into Common Data Service (CDS) to access various external data sources that can be included in the reporting. This functionality (import from extenal data) is highly valued for current customers using Management Reporter, and prevents them from purchasing 3rd party software in order to perform consolidations. We should have the same offer in Dynamics 365.

This option is very important for our financial reporting as this is the only way to get the sales volume from outside sources to our operational reports.

if you have any other option or solution to get the sales volume to the financial reporting, kindly let me know !?
