NextReports 8.1 was just released bringing new features especially to server.
From now, run / schedule process can contain a new step called "batch". Any report that has a single-selection parameter with a source can now be used as a "batch parameter", so the report will be run for every value of that parameter. If this parameter can be related to a person (like customer with an attached email) and users enter a simple sql to get the email for that person, then every generated report will be sent to related email.
Administrators can see internal data regarding rights, list of entities (data sources, reports, charts, schedulers), reports run with their status, and can save all these as excel files.
Table widgets have sorting capability and some new iframe parameters make those widgets look good on different devices, especially on big monitor screens. tableFontSize and tableCellPadding in points can be used:
With tableFontSize=18 and tableCellPadding=10 the same widget will look like:
Another parameter, adjustableTextFontSize, has a boolean value and by setting it to true the chart from iframe will have texts from title, legends and axis values adjusted in concordance with iframe width. This parameter is automatically set to true on chart Detach action from NextReports Server.
Dashboard has an embed url code like:
