      • Merge the printed documents

        We have letters printed based on the letter (unique)id so when there are 100 letters for example we do have 100 letters(documents) printed which is great and that is how we anticipate the outcome, along with that we have a mail merge process that merges all 100 individual letters to one document, this way the team which prints the letter will have to send the one file to the machine for printing all 100 letters instead sending 100 different individual letters. I want to check and see if we have any process that merges individual printed letters to one single…

        • RESTful Engine Error Response

          While processing through a dataset I use the following code:
          if(report.GetStatus() == Report.Status.Error)

          What needs to be added is a way to see and report back to the user what failed. Why is the report in an error state.

          • Add test-engine message to the header instead of to the body

            Our automated test process counts the number of pages of created documents. In some cases they can never be more than one.

            Because of the extra body text "Report created by Windward test version - www.windward.net" our test cases fail when the document is just on the limit. See attached an example of such situation.

            This could be avoided if the text was put in the header as a text box behind the text (like the workaround for creating a watermark, "Voorbeeld" in our test case).

            This has the additional advantage for you, that all the documents will be…

            • RESTful Engine - Embedded Datasource in Request

              Currently when passing and XML or JSON data source within a REST request it has to be encoded into base64. It would be very valuable to be able to pass the XML or JSON data directly within the REST request.

                  RESTful engine async does not check for the validity of the report request and immediately returns a Guid. It would be preferred that
                  the RESTful engine checks immediately and return an error message instead.

                  • RESTful Engine does not support ReportText!

                    We current switched from the .NET engine to the RESTful engine and discovered that we lost the ability to create Text reports. For some reason the RESTful engine does not support this simple file output. Can you please put this feature into the RESTful engine? We have many customers that require text reports that are directly loaded into mainframes and/or other hardware and we can't provide any other file format.

                    • Multiple Print

                      We are trying to use the RESTful Engine to print reports (autotag templates). Currently, there is no feature to send a request for multiple copies of a job. If you need to print 3 copies of the same report, you will need to send the job 3 times. It will be great if you can command to have number of copies to print.
