Serving a large and engaged community like the one around SAP Crystal solutions is a privilege and a responsibility for us at SAP. As we enter the fourth decade of availability for Crystal solutions in the market, we would like to take the opportunity to highlight some of the contents we have created recently for developers, users and administrators to leverage SAP Crystal Solutions in the best way.
A. The first request we regularly get in peer review sites is “easy to use education materials”. For that purpose, we have created a full series of comprehensive step-by-step guides. You can find them for free at: https://www.crystalreports.com/guides/.
They combine text explanations as a series of steps to follow as well as screenshots to explain exactly where to do what.
B. The second request we get is for a single place to download the latest releases and service packs. This is available without registration at https://www.crystalreports.com/download/.
You will get access to the latest full builds for every version of SAP Crystal Reports and SAP Crystal Server, the end of support date as well as the possibility to buy new Crystal licenses in a digital fashion through the SAP Store. Note that payment can be done by credit card or by invoice.
C. The third request is for a comprehensive Frequently Asked Question page. This is live at: https://www.crystalreports.com/faq/. There are 5 sections to help you to navigate the page.
D. If you are just starting with SAP Crystal solutions, we have created some introduction pages for your high level understanding:
- What data analysis and data reporting are about: https://www.crystalreports.com/whatis/
- First steps with SAP Crystal Reports:https://www.crystalreports.com/welcome/
- First steps with SAP Crystal Server: https://www.crystalreports.com/welcome-server/
