I’m opening this topic for a future and comprehensive discussion, if the forum moderators agree. Long story short, I have been using this software since October 2020 and I have come a long way since the days when I couldn`t understand nothing.
This forum indeed is very helpful, and I would like to thank everybody that’s involved. It turned me in a frequent user, therefore I’m raising the next question : Wouldn’t be useful to have some features/plugins regarding generating reports?
For every job I run, in my processes I use update data records and retrieve in order to get the job done.
Beside the initial input file I have 1, 2 more incoming files that updates the initial input file at (record set level). At the end of each job I have to create reports based on all the information updated in database.
For now, I’m using retrieve items -> outputting to JSON followed by a script to create the report assisting the print documents.
It would be much more convenient to have the ability to generate a file straight away.
The struggling part is that:
- The Costumer ask for different types of reports
- The Postal company also asks for other types
- Strenuous work to write scripts for each client request and for each type of sending by the Postal company.
My company deals with postal integration and we have to assist every job with different kind of reports.
Also, I would also like see in the future this request posted by TDGreer
