1.32.0 (2021-10-11)Link

1.30.0 (2021-08-23)Link

  • New feature: Linking custom data items/columns to other custom columns in report dataset extensions. You can now go multiple levels deep with adding new columns and data items, now allowing you to include custom columns in filters.
  • Shifted Document Creator Report Dataset Extensions to DataPerCompany=false. An upgrade option is available from a notification in the role center and the Document Creator Report Dataset Extensions page.
  • Added Assisted Setup entry with Document Creator Setup Wizard.
  • Added field "Custom Node Count" to Filter Sets to allow you to check the number of custom nodes the filter set is being used by.
  • Added "Test Filters" action that checks if your filters are incomplete or otherwise invalid. This same check is now also performed when reports are run, and if any errors are detected in the filters, then report execution will be aborted.
  • Implemented Restrictions in filter sets.
  • It is now possible to Cast boolean-, date- and option-/enum-fields for custom columns to different datatypes, e.g., use the caption of an option/enum or its numeric (integer) value. The translation for the column is based on the language specified through the "Language Code" column (which applies to all custom columns of the data item).
  • The lookup for a filter's "Value Column" is now filtered on data type (by default).
  • Fix for "Export Design" (without data) not working when dataset extensions exist for the report.
  • Added "Remove Missing Datasources" setup field, to specify whether datasources and their relations should be removed automatically when the corresponding data items are removed from the report (Default: true).
  • Updated XmlPort for importing/exporting translations to allow for note and context tags in trans-units.
  • Updated telemetry for full + device user count.
  • On-Premise only: A notification is displayed if the Document Creator Control Add-In still needs to be installed. You can invoke the installation from the notification.

  • Changed permission set description to "Apportunix Document Creator".

1.24.0 (2021-02-01)Link

  • The Document Creator Setup now includes a new Fall Back on Default Language setting. When this setting is enabled, Document Creator will fall back on the translation for the configured default language code if a translation for a language could not be found. trial

  • The Export Design action now remembers report request page settings.

  • The Document Creator extension can now also be used in Sandbox Docker containers without a product key.
  • The Document Creator app now has a transparent logo.
  • Fix: Show warning about Translation Update Usage setting only once.

On-Premise Only-Changes

  • The columns in the dataset (e.g., Date-columns) use the culture that corresponds with the user's region that is configured in his/her Business Central settings. When a report is generated we are now passing this data culture along.
  • The way fields are formatted (e.g., using "," vs. ".") on layouts is determined by the culture of the server. The Format Locale setting is now also available/visible and used for On-Premise so this can also be set to a different culture without changing the server's culture settings.
  • Fix: "E-mail Product Updates" not sent to the API in Document Creator On-Premise for BC15 and up.
