I would like to see more development and growth for the support of Knowledge Base and Community forums.I would love to have more customization capabilities for building dashboards, especially in creating custom widget sizes.I would also like to be able to run a bursts of reports based on different field values with PDF output right in the tool, rather than filtering on each field value and generating each PDF manually.The initial version we purchased only ran on Windows servers, which was less than ideal for our DevOps team.
