1) Can an end user change chart types, and how easy is that process?
Yes, it’s very easy for end users to change chart types. Simply go into “Edit Mode” and from there you have access to edit all of the components on your report or dashboard including chart types. Once in “Edit Mode”, you just select whichever other style of chart that you want from the dropdown menu and instantly it will adjust to meet your modifications. Note: This whole process can be seen in the on-demand recording.
2) Where can I see these reports in action?
Visa uses JReport so if you happen to be a Visa Small Business card holder you have likely interacted with JReport already without noticing. Every time you log-in to access your account information, you’re actually logging into JReport and interacting with it.
Also, recently we launched a JReport Evaluation in the Cloud so if you’re interested in getting in there and playing around with some of our sample data, feel free to reach out to Sales (email@example.com) and we’ll be happy to set you up with a free log-in so you can get a better feel for JReport.
3) Can I create my own reports with JDashboard shown in today’s webinar?
JDashboard is really easy for anyone to use, providing great custom views of data in an easy to read format. Additionally, JReport’s ad hoc reporting has a strong comprehensive feature set with Wizards and toolboxes where you can create custom Web based reports on the fly. We have a number of demos in addition to information on our site so if you’re interested in learning more check out the resources on our site, contact us directly, or register for our next webinar on Ad Hoc Reporting!
4) As a developer how much work does it require to enable these interactive capabilities that you mention like drilling down and linking?
It is really built into the capability of the reporting system. Whenever you define the data and the groupings, that in itself is enough to enable these drill downs and other controls because the system is aware of the hierarchies so, in changing the groupings, the calculations will automatically update. There is really very little that needs to be done on the developer side with this, we try to provide as much built in capability and intuitiveness into the system as possible.
