Product Enhancements Featured in Jet Reports 20.5
Enhanced query handling for Business Central
Microsoft has recently made a change to its API limits for Dynamics 365 Business Central. The limits were introduced to ensure that no single client consumes too many resources. For Jet Reports users, this could cause queries to time out or return error messages. In Jet Reports 20.5, there is a new query orchestrator that can identify longer queries that may time out and break them up into smaller queries to run individually. It can then combine the results into a single dataset, allowing users to refresh their reports without interruption.
Support for multi-tenant environments
Customers that deploy multi-tenant environments in Business Central and define their credentials centrally can now select which tenant to authenticate against when using Jet Reports. This enables customers to switch between tenants so they are not limited to the default tenant in which their central credentials were defined. Additionally, customers are no longer limited to their default environment and can switch between production environments.
Simplified budget security set-up in Jet Budgets
Rather than adding users one at a time, administrators can now add groups of users from Active Directory or Azure Active Directory. Within these groups, users are given a role of budget user, budget viewer, budget contributor or approver, or budget owner.
Streamlined navigation of budget lists
In Jet Reports 20.5, users can easily navigate and search through lists of budgets. This is helpful for companies that manage large numbers of budgets. Pagination capabilities enable users to select the number of results (budgets) shown per page and easily navigate between pages. The existing search box also works in sync with the pagination function.
Faster content rendering in budget overview page
Performance enhancements made in Jet Reports 20.5 have significantly sped up the rendering of content in the budget overview page. This facilitates greater ease of use and allows users to complete their tasks more quickly and effectively
