  1. Don't allow a POD to be created if it contains undefined variables.

    Currently, a POD can be created that contains Tags which refer to variables defined in other Tags not included in the POD. Then those Tags fail when the POD is used in another template. Request that when a POD is saved, Report Designer checks whether there are undefined variables in any Tag, and if so, rejects saving the POD with a message like "POD contains undefined variables."

        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.

        • Can we have a table type variable so as to avoid repeat SQL calls?

          Our developers indicated it would be very useful to have a table type variable or something similar (e.g. structure or user defined type) to store SQL statement results and so avoid repeated calls to the database.

          • Bursting - the Java Engine should be able to email sections/pages to different people.

            This would allow a user to run a deposit slip report and have each page generated and emailed out to the individual the slip is for.

            Or a company report divided by department with each departments section automatically emailed out to the department head.

            • Enemy Nations 2

              Playing Enemy Nations is one of the highlights of my childhood - it was a fantastic strategy game way ahead of its time.

              I realize this is not the area of focus for Windward anymore, but is there any chance that one day a sequel might be made?

              Loving all the work you guys do.

                • 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.

                  • formatting to respected currency (not all that are available as basic excel formats are available in windward)

                    we do business in 3 region and use different mode of currency payments such as USD, GBP, EUR and AED.

                    when building templates with relevant information that goes to finance teams for analysis i used windward(autotag) in excel linked to my SQL database. i have to created templates that are currency specific i.e. if the product was sold in GBP i have to produce all sales and expenditures towards the product in their respected GBP currency. (e.g. £1,100.56)

                    i have noticed that AED is not a current format that windward allows me to convert the figure too. however this feature…

                    • 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.

                      • Custom OrderBy criteria.

                        The capability to define custom OrderBy rules. We have properties we would like to order by, and these properties return string values that we would like to order by in a non-alphabetical fashion.

                        Example orderby: (Critical, High, Medium, Low, Info)

                        Workaround right now is to change the return type of the property to int and keep track of a mapping between the int and the original string.
