Management Reporter Best Practice

Posted on by Microsoft Employee

When developing an income statement in management reporter, what is the best practice for producing reports by service line, which is a subset of company?  Develop a tree which breaks out the reporting structure and adding it to the report definition, or writing a separate report definition for each service line and defining  the service line by account in the link to financial dimensions column in the row definition?

    Hi Walnut,

    I am not aware of a best practice guide.

    A lot of  "good practice" examples can be found on the MS Management Reporter blog.

    blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/dynamics_financial_reporting

    Probably also check out this blog for additional information and examples.

    Best regards,

    Ludwig

    Thank You.  That makes good sense.  Is there a best practice for this type of thing?

    Hi Walnut,

    I would not write separate report definitions for each service line because if something changes you have to maintain a lot of reports.

    Best regards,

    Ludwig
