CRD is an application for Windows that saves time and money by making it easy to define single or packages of Crystal reports, schedule and run them automatically, and send the reports to print, fax, disk, or email in a number of standard formats.
Simply set up a schedule stating how often you would like each report to run, whether you'd like the output in Word, Excel, HTML, RTF, Acrobat, RPT, text format, and more and who it should be sent to.
It's easy to schedule reports to run at a specific date and time, or to run them hourly, daily, weekly, or monthly - or when spcified events occur
The same report can be scheduled to be run multiple times with different parameters, formats, frequencies, and destinations.
By automating repetitive reporting tasks, CRD ensures that reports are created and distributed when needed, without error, and without costly support time.
CRD's familiar Explorer-like interface makes it easy to define and schedule report packages. The context (right-click) menus and full copy-and-paste support make it easy to create complex distribution schedules.
Features include the ability of Windows NT4/2000/XP users to run CRD as a service, a improved intuitive user interface, a comprehensive scheduler that lets you create reports at any frequency, and send them to print, fax, disk, or email (using SMTP, MAPI, and CRDMail), a wide range of export formats, dynamic database functionality, custom frequency calendars, a built in address book, bulk printing, ftp folder output, single and ranges of parameters, conditional scheduling, group bursting, multi-threading, clustering and lots more.
Whether you're spending too much time running and distributing Crystal Reports output to line managers, or you need to provide corporate management with tailored reports on a regular schedule, CRD gives you the tools that you need.
