May 2021

This month we bring you a few great new features and many new bug fixes.

New this month

Introducing QuickStart

Available now, exclusively for new Solver Cloud and Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central cloud customers.

QuickStart brings a new easier experience when integrating with external data sources. Get started quickly by connecting to your data source and selecting templates from our Template Marketplace and Solver handles the rest.

QuickStart will map, schedule, and import the data you select. This first release will work for General Ledger data. We will follow up with sub-ledgers over the next several months.

After running the QuickStart integration, the Template Marketplace is available. The Marketplace brings a growing list of reporting templates ready to use on day one, and will soon include planning templates and access to Power BI reports. The templates can be used as-is or modified with our Excel Report Designer extension to customize them to your specific needs.

The first release supports D365 Business Central for General Ledger and it best for our new customers just starting. Future releases will support D365 Finance and several other ERP’s, later this year.

    • Hyperlink
  • Data Warehouse admin – Data sizes for Modules and Dimensions update when the table is cleared.
  • Business Rules – with a space in the name caused an error when attempting to delete.
