Report Manager Version 6.1.5895 Released

Added the following new features:

  • Template tasks can now generate HTML from Powepoint or Excel output. This HTML can be easily placed into emails without any scripting.  Excel HTML generation now includes images if they exist on the sheet.  This was only available in QuickMerge tasks but is not also available in Template Report Tasks.
  • Attached Files in Group Tasks.  You can now store files (typically templates, powerpoint, excel, word files) with your group task.  This keeps everything together in one place for a report.  These attached files are automatically copied to the Group Task TEMP folder each time the group task or one of the group task children are executed.  Exporting a group task and importing it to another server also copied any attached files.
  • Dynamic Pivot Tables.  You can now dynamically update a pivot table without losing the selected filters, row, and column settings.

Report Manager Version 6.1.5884 Released

Add a few new features:

• Auto Execute Folders – Added the ability for Report Manager to monitor NTFS folders where a given folder has been tied to a Report Manager Task. When a new file is created in the monitored folder the given Report Manager task is executed. The user name is derived from the File Owner. The Template file and filename are passed into the Report Manager task as Report Manager system variables. This allows for end users to create simple Excel and Powerpoint templates and simply drop them into a NTFS folder which will cause Report Manager to scoop them up and execute a given Report Manager task. When used with Dynamic Tags allows a user to self serve adding QlikView and Tableau data and images to their Powerpoint and Excel templates without any direct access to Report Manager.

• Added ability to override folder on xmlimport. By default tasks imported go into the folders they came from if that folder exists, otherwise they go into the default folder. With this override you can pick a folder on import and the tasks will go into thtat folder.

• Added support to Word tags in Word Text boxes. Also added to the API the ability to change word text boxes.

• Fixed issue with tags when cut and pasted into office were white letters and not visible on a white background. They are not black.

Small Features and Bug fixes


  • Added RMSecurityTableGenerator utility to make it easier to integrate with QlikView Section Access Row Level Security.

  • Added to Template tasks tag properties CollectionIndex which allows the user to pick a member of a collection to use.

  • Added to Template tasks for both QlikView and Tableau the ability to read dynamic tags in the office template and automatically retrieve the desired Tableau or QV objects without needing to add them to a Tableau or QV Export task.

  • Added checkbox in Template Tasks to cause slides or sheets where all of the tags are not rendered because the variable is missing to delete the slide or sheet.

  • Notable Bug Fixes

    • Fixed issue with ActiveDirectory lookups when no domainname provided to now check domain first then local groups.

Report Manager Version 6.1.5842 Released


  • Added auto archive of all emails.  There is now a checkbox in the RM Console application on the email tab.  "Auto Archive Report Distribution Emails".  When checked all emails will be archived in the CIAReports\EmailHistory folder.  There is also a Remove and Export button to remove the existing archived emails as well as export the contents as xml.  Attachments are also archived with the emails.

Bug fixes:

  • Scheduler items were not showing up in the UI in some cases.  The bug has been fixed in this version.  There is also a workaround which resolves the issue.  Simply in RM add the Administrators security group to each folder where the Schedule items do not display.
  • Fixed issue with Excel OpenXML borders not displaying when adjacent to a newly created merge cell.
