Management Reporter 2012 has been released!

Management Reporter 2012 has been released!  This release includes more than 30 new features, including all promised features!  You can find videos of these features at the Microsoft CPM blog here.

Some of the new features include:
  • Integration with Microsoft Dynamics NAV
  • Schedule reports to generate on a periodic basis
  • Publish reports to multiple Microsoft SharePoint or network locations
  • E-mail a link to the report from the Report Viewer
  • Quickly create a chart based upon selected report rows and columns
  • Drill from account and budget balances on a report to related information in your Microsoft Dynamics ERP
  • Toggle the accounts display to optionally include/not include the dimension descriptions by user
One important thing to mention is that the FRx migration tool currently does not work with MR 2012.  We expect this will be addressed shortly, but in the meantime, you will need to migrate on the previous version of MR.


  1. Hi,

    I am currently facing an issues with MR2012. Even though the Dimension Set in AX is set to start with Account Code,Servcie Line,Location and Type of Service.

    When we drill down on the report in MR the dimension description starts with the Location instead of the Main Account. I reviewed the datamart that MR is connecting to and noticed that in the DimensionDefinition table Location is set with an OrdinalID of 1 instead of 4. I tried manually updating that but, within a few minutes it gets goes back to the original number. I need help in figuring out how to fix this issue.


    1. Hello Anu,

      I suggest you launch a case with Microsoft support to investigate further.
