Jet Global rolled out the official release of Jet 20.0 in April and we are here to take your through some of the new features and benefits you can expect to see. In this Spring release, there are three major highlights:
- Microsoft Word integration.
- A redesigned browser.
- New integrations!
Microsoft Word Integration
Available in the Jet 20.0 release of Jet Reports, Word integration enables users to configure Word templates and generate their output from within Jet Reports.
Compared to the current manual process of cutting and pasting reports and charts into Word, this feature will automatically generate word documents – supplying shortcuts, reducing errors, providing consistency, and enabling real-time data.
Simply click on the “Configure Word Export” button that will be added to the Jet Ribbon. Within the Word export, you can define ranges for merging Jet Reports’ data into Word, as well as selecting what charts to embed.
This new feature gives you a faster and easier way to generate Microsoft Word documents using Jet data. For Jet Designers or regular users that need to produce executive reports, financial statements, cover sheets, invoices, and billing statements, this is a huge time-saver!
User Interface (UI) Improvements
One of the most exciting changes you will notice in the Jet 20.0 release is the redesigned Jet Browser! The user interface improvements are consistent with the Jet Report Wizard design. Everything is more visible and easier to find, as you can see in the screenshot below.
Using the Jet Ribbon, the new UI enhancements include a collapsible details pane on the right and the following table and field improvements:
- Search filter box
- Independent table and field favorites
- Table drilldown button
- Fields are multi-select
Once you update to Jet 20.0, you will also be able to take advantage of the new changes made to the insert PivotTable feature. This includes is a more consistent visual design and better navigation to walk you through creating and inserting your PivotTable.
On top of a redesigned Jet Browser for efficiency, Jet Global has also added some new integrations into the Jet 20.0 release.
• The “Dynamics 365 Business Central” data source is now available within Excel, the Jet Admin Console, and Jet Hub.
• Office 365 support for users using Azure Active Directory (AAD).
