Intuitive and Easy-to-Use Design
Familiar User Interface
We built the Server Report Designer to look like familiar word processing web applications with additional data-driven features. This makes the learning curve shallower and provides a welcoming environment where even novice users are happy to design reports.
It's All About the Report
We tuned the user experience to focus on the report design surface. This gives users the maximum space for dragging, dropping, resizing, and laying out the report controls and data regions. Frequently used features are just a click away, while one-time setup configurations take a back seat.
Multi-Use Property Panel
By default, the property panel shows the most commonly modified properties. The "Show More" button reveals the complete set of properties for each control. This means non-technical users aren't overwhelmed, while advanced users have the full range of powerful design capabilities in their hands.
