  • Develop a custom prompt page to target Crystal Reports and Web Intelligence.
  • Develop an interface to provide additional interaction with data such as write-backs to the database and report annotations.
  • Create a reporting jump page or navigation page or simple reporting portal.
  • Customize, hide, or suppress the Crystal Reports viewer toolbar.
  • Create interactive dashboard style reports.
  • Automatically refresh reports to emulate real time reporting or to do load testing.

  • No additional tools (i.e. software packages) are required.
