Jet Professional allows users to be classified as designers and viewers. Designers have the capability to design and run reports, and viewers are only allowed to run authorized reports. This distinction allows managers to know that the information that they have authorized is the information that is in use, but retain the freedom to authorize multiple report designers.
For additional security (a must for external reports), the scheduling and distribution capabilities of Jet Professional allows you to distribute reports in well know formats including PDF which are small, secure and tamper proof.
The powerful features of the Jet Scheduler also make it easy to distribute the right information to the appropriate individuals at the right time. If you have a sales team and want to send each their own results, the Jet Scheduler makes it easy to set this up. Since the scheduler never goes on vacation or gets sick, you know that the information is delivered on time, every time.
With the scheduler you can also create alerts to ensure that the right people are notified when needed. For example, it is easy to schedule an alert that will keep your accounts payable clerk from missing an early payment opportunity for invoices posted between check runs.
In addition to the capabilities offered in Jet Express, Jet Professional has advanced features that ensure that you have the power to create the reports that you need, regardless of the format requirements. Leveraging the power of the familiar Excel interface, Jet Professional can help you to create compelling reports quickly even if you can’t write programs.
With Jet Professional users can create reports that automatically add rows, columns and/or sheets of information based on the content of their data. If, for instance, you want to create a report with information about each product category on its own page, you can do this with a single formula. As product categories are added or modified a click of the ‘refresh’ button will update the report to reflect the changes in your data. With Jet Professional, you can decide how your report will look on a cell by cell basis, giving you unsurpassed flexibility to create dashboards and reports that will comply with any governmental or other reporting requirements.
Jet Professional supports small business teams that have data in more than one source and can connect to Microsoft Dynamics NAV, GP, CRM and virtually all OLE/ODBC compliant applications. With Jet Professional you can consolidate information from any number of data sources into the same report at any level of detail. Regardless of the source of your information, or how much or little you need, you can feel comfortable that it can be easily included on your report or dashboard.
Jet Professional includes many features designed to save time, effort and reduce errors while creating reports.
Drag and Drop Data Browser with Data Samples – Jet Professional users can enjoy a further understanding of their data with the ability to browse the information in the tables and fields directly to verify what they are looking at. All tables and fields (including customized data) are available and provide you with the additional information that you need to make sure the reports you are creating are accurate.
Report Writing Wizards – Reporting wizards make creating standardized reports trivial. You can create simple reports like sales by salesperson in about a minute. For Microsoft Dynamics NAV users, report wizards trivialize difficult to handle advanced dimensions and fully support flow fields eliminating the need for programming.
Snippets – A lot of time spent during report creation is spent on repetitive tasks. Snippets provide a permanent clipboard for your Excel logic and will save you time and help you to reduce errors when designing reports. Snippets can be easily shared with your team to help spread your productivity improvements.
Favorites – Most tables and fields are not relevant for reporting. With Jet Professional, you can determine what is relevant and minimize the time and effort sifting through unnecessary information. If you have a team, creating and sharing your favorites can help you get them up to speed faster.
Reports don’t need to be complicated to be useful. Sometimes even simple functions like the ability to strip off the first character of a field can be very useful. Jet Professional allows any Excel formula to be used directly in the table builder and in doing so, significantly increases the capability of the feature. The contact list below is just a simple list of contacts in rolodex format. Easy, but useful.
The advanced linking functions that are available in the Table Builder with Jet Professional allow you to easily answer sophisticated questions like who else purchased a similar product. The inclusive/exclusive linking feature makes difficult reports such as lot tracking considerably easier.
