Dynamics Report Manager vs. Dynamics GP Reporting

Visit Website View Our Posts

Reports, they are what every business needs to create regularly. It is important to have reports for tracking your progress, providing you with a means of comparing periods, project details, your history of growth, and so much more. Creating reports might be a time-consuming process; printing them shouldn't be. There is a way for fast and easy reporting.

Dynamics GP does offer a variety of reports, which is excellent, the limitations are where and how you can print them. Dynamics Report Manager (DRM) gives you the flexibility to print most any report, from almost anywhere, at any time. This makes your reports work simpler & easier®!


Variety is the spice of life

Yes, you can get most of the reports you need within GP; however, with DRM, you now have the flexibility to launch your report from almost anywhere inside GP. This includes 3rd party products and integrating dictionaries. You can print SSRS, Crystal Reports, and others from the window of your choice. You can even replace the existing Report Writer report with a different type of report.


Get ready to launch

We don't limit you to just windows. You can print from a Floating Palette, Shortcut Bar, Home Page, or even schedule a launch to print reports when you want, even if you are away from the office.

With a scheduled launch, you determine if the report should be an hourly, daily, or monthly report. You can decide where you want the reports to print. This is extremely helpful for significant reports that may tie up a printer or if you are traveling or on the road. DRM allows you to launch reports from a variety of sources and programs, including:

  • Crystal ReportsPrint reports fast and easily.
  • SQL Reporting Services (SSRS)
  • FRx
  • Management Reporter
  • Report Writer
  • Microsoft Word and Excel
  • Any Dexterity-based third-party program


Print Destinations

Dynamics Report Manager gives you the flexibility to have reports sent to the screen, printer, or saved to a file as a .pdf or Word document. Email reports in a snap from any window. You do have the ability to email reports in GP as well, but not just any report from any window.

This even includes a batch of reports. DRM gives you this flexibility using our Batch Report feature. For example, with the click of a button, you can email all Crystal Report invoices in a batch to the appropriate customer. What a time saver!


Easy to Manage

Last but not least, one more feature that you won't find in Dynamics GP is the Dynamics Report Manager Explorer window. This is a centralized window that will display the existing reports you print using DRM, regardless of the report type or module. You will be able to see all reports in one window and easily print multiple reports from this same window. You can sort, configure, and group reports together for easy printing and viewing. This makes reporting more manageable.


To wrap it all up, we make viewing, printing, and emailing reports simpler and easier!
