    • Add interactive charting.

      "Dashboards" have become extremely popular in the past few years. From a technical standpoint this largely consists of charting with a more interactive nature. Hovering over a bar on a bar chart brings up the value of that bar. Clicking on it lets you get more information on whatever is related to that specific part of the graph. It may include some navigation options inside the graph itself, adding elements, zooming in, etc.

      Crystal clear has relatively simple link based navigation. This is starting to look clunky compared to more interactive and intuitive navigation that's becoming more standard (largely web…

        • Auto Join Tables in Adhoc Reporting

          Use defined database relationships/constraints to automatically join tables where appropriate or consider allowing auto joins based on configurable rules (if a table has CourseID and the Courses table is available then join). While something like this may not be simple to implement, any way to avoid users needing to understand database details yet being able to use adhoc reporting is useful. The data views do not work well for this as you cannot have more than one in the report and not all tables can be pre-joined/defined in the data views.

            • Allow Sharing of Adhoc Reports Between Users

              Adhoc reports are saved as settings rather than full report files and are not named in a userfriendly way nor are they shareable between users. Being able to have shared adhoc reports would be useful.

              • Have "beans" exporting text

                It would be great to have new types of beans that can render text instead of images.

                • Show drop-down-lists for filtering in Adhoc reports

                  Some columns are simply ID fields in a table. When there is a second table joined on that ID, have the GUI offer a drop-down-list or combobox for choosing what to filter by. Users do not always know the values of these ID fields and giving them a userfriendly choice would make adhoc reporting much more useable.

                  • Have a function to sort an array

                    Clear Reports Designer 13.1.

                    I have a report that lists all jobs related to the current job. There could be 20+ related jobs, but they are displayed in random order. I put the jobs in an array of strings, but there is no sort function. Can you make a sort function for arrays? This is a very basic function already included in most languages.

                    I'm not a Java programmer so I can't make my own Java bean. A second choice would be have a Java bean do this and a clear example for beginners how to use the Java Bean…

                    • Unique Column Variables in Crosstab

                      I am not too sure if this is possible, but does not appear to be. I want to add another variable to a crosstab report column that does not interact with the variable list in sequential order above it. This variable would be independent of any previously listed variable, and only interact with the column variables listed.

                        • Need smaller increments in zooming report design

                          Clear Report Designer 13.1

                          We really need smaller increments when in design mode and I zoom in on the report. Going from 114% to 156% is not helpful at all. How about user-settable zoom increments, defaulting to 10% steps?

                          • Oracle bind variable peeking feature

                            Hello,

                            We ever commit a question like this:
                            Does i-net support Oracle bind variable peeking feature.

                            And get your answer:
                            It sounds that it is not supported. My understand is that the parameters of a PreparedStatement are bind variables.

                            So do you have an plan to support Oracle bind variable peeking feature in future release?

                            • Create user-defined zoom steps

                              In i-net Designer 13.1.799 at the bottom right of the report designer is a slider for zooming. The slider goes from 114% to 156% which is not useful. A default step for zooming of 10% would be more useful. Have this step for zooming be user-defined in the options screen.

                              • show source field in status bar

                                Clear Reports designer 12.1 showed the source field in the status bar (bottom of window) when I clicked on a text box. I used this a lot. When I upgraded to 13.1 CR no longer shows the source field in the status bar. Is there a way to turn this on in 13.1? Or is there a patch for this?

                                Thank you.

                                  Would be nice to remove the borders on the labels but still have the line to the pie.
