Continuous Display of a Report

Continuous Display of a Report

Continuous Display of a Report

We're looking into having a "Status Board" which would basically be a large video screen with a report that is constantly updated.

Will any of the schedulers do something like this? We'd need the report to refresh every minute (or something close to that) and redisplay.

RE: Continuous Display of a Report

Have you looked into a report viewer?
We use Easyview to display several crystal reports onto TV screens. The viewer is capable of refreshing the data at whatever interval you want and can page through multi-page reports at different time intervals.


RE: Continuous Display of a Report

Thanks brad, that's the information I was hoping for.

RE: Continuous Display of a Report

You're very welcome!!

RE: Continuous Display of a Report

This is called AutoRefresh and is available in several viewers. See the feature matrix in my annual comparison for viewers for which ones have this available. And I would read the overview before you purchase EasyView. They seem to be out of business even though their site is still running.

RE: Continuous Display of a Report

Thanks Ken,
I actually have looked at your list since my original post, and right now I'm leaning towards Ido MIllet's viewer because I know the support will be so good.
