With Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015, you now have the ability to view the Management Reporter reports that you have access to from within the GP client. This feature was first introduced with Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015, and is available in R2 as well.
There is some setup required, so make sure to perform the following:
- On the Reporting Tools Setup under Tools | System | Setup click on the Management Reporter tab
- Set the Management Reporter Service to the address of the MR application service. This is the same location you enter for your Report Designer client to connect to
- Set the location of Report Designer.exe. This should point to the Report Designer client. The default path is C:\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics ERP\Management Reporter\2.1\Client\ReportDesigner.exe
- Report Definitions won’t appear within the report list unless the report has been generated and exists within the report library
Once setup is complete, you can view reports from Home | Administration | All Report List. You can double-click on a report to open in the web viewer. For those users who have Design or Generator permissions, they also have the ability to click New MR Report in the top ribbon of the reports list to create or edit a report within Report Designer.
