Easy View - Crystal Reports Viewer - Features
With Easy View there is no need to purchase an expensive copy of Crystal Reports for every one of your employees that needs a Crystal Reports Viewer. Crystal Reports is a great tool for analyzing just about any part of your business but the fact is that most of your employees don't need a full copy of Crystal Reports. All they really need is a way to view and distribute reports that were already made for them. Easy View does this and much much more.
Easy View can view, export and print all reports from Crystal Reports 2008 and older. All the latest features and functions like dynamic parameters are supported. Easy View can be used to view reports offline with stored data or connect to a live database.
Easy View is the most flexible Crystal Report Viewer you will ever use. You can preview, print, export and email any of your Crystal Reports (.rpt) files manually or automatically. Easy View has many options that let you determine exactly how the crystal report will run. This helps you save time by not making you go through the same steps over and over each time you run a crystal report.
Easy View has a tree view to help organize and access your Crystal Reports files. The tree view displays recently run reports and lets you select reports to add to your favorites section. Easy View can also monitor directories on your computer or server and list them in the tree view.
Crystal Reports can be exported to many popular formats for distribution
to people that don't have Crystal Reports or a Crystal Report Viewer.
Do you run the same Crystal Reports every day, week or month? Let Easy View do work for you with its powerful Crystal Report scheduler. You can configure the report scheduler to run as many reports as you want whenever you want. Reports can be automatically displayed on the screen, printed and exported. Easy View can export the report into your favorite format, attach it to an email and send to anyone you want all without the touch of a button.
The Easy View report scheduler runs as a Windows service for maximum convenience, reliability and security. The scheduler will run on a computer or server and run Crystal Reports without having anyone logged on to the computer.
Easy View has built in variables that can be used in place of dates, times and names. Instead of hard coding dates into a report you can use the Easy View variables to feed custom parameters. For example you can set up a schedule to run the first day of every month and feed parameter into the report with the first and last day of the previous month. There is no need to go back every month and enter new dates. This helps maximize the use of each Crystal Report.
The variables can also be used in the email subject or body to customize an email. If you are exporting a report, the variables can be used in the export file to make a new folder or put the date in the name.
Need to run a Crystal Report and send the results out? Easy View has
full email support. Reports can be attached to an email using your
own email program or sent directly from Easy View.
In the rare cases that the built-in report scheduler is not enough Easy View can be activated directly with full command line support. Easy View can be activated from the Windows scheduler, batch files, DOS commands or any program that can start an EXE file with command line parameters. This means that Easy View can be used in conjunction with a virtually unlimited number of external applications and processes making it an incredibly powerful crystal report viewer.
Easy View can run crystal reports that connect to just about any type of database. Many databases are supported directly by the crystal report viewer. For databases that are not directly supported it is usually just a matter of installing special drivers for the database. Easy View also supports Crystal Reports that connect to multiple databases from 1 report.
Your login information can be stored securely in Easy View. This gives you the ability to run reports automatically without having to type in the login information each time.
Easy View can be password protected to prevent unauthorized people from using the crystal report viewer to run your Crystal reports.
Easy View continuously checks for program updates and lets you know when they are available for download. Updating your Crystal Report Viewer is as simple as clicking a button.
If you are using multiple copies of Easy View within your company, you can use the import / export features to easily distribute data and settings to all users.
Easy View saves your report parameters so you don't have to type them in over and over each time you run a Crystal report.
The web is great way to distribute information quickly and easily. With a little help from the Easy View report scheduler, updating information on your internal network or web server is a snap. You can use the Easy View report scheduler to export reports to HTML or XML file formats at regular intervals and save the files to a web server or some other convenient place on your network. These files can be viewed by anyone with a web browser or used by another program to process the XML data.
