The API they have can do just about anything, but their documentation on the API and examples are only for some of the basics. They need to and are working on filling in those gaps. It is understandable that they have not yet documented everything that you can do with the API because there is a lot you can do with it. View full review »

One feature I would like to see added is funnel charts. Dundas has the ability to modify a bar chart to mimic a funnel, or to ingest 3rd part visuals. But both feel a little clunky to use. An out of the box funnel chart would be preferred. Some native functionality to 'write back' to a specific field in a database would be a welcome change as well. Dundas has the ability to create a form using text boxes that can be used as variables in a stored procedure for writing back to a SQL backend. This works, but our users have not liked the experience. What our users prefer is a grid of data with the cells being editable, allowing them to update data from within the grid. View full review »

More of the same! They still need to add some visualisations and could continue to improve the UI to allow users to easily find what they need within the many different options. View full review »

Matrix tables. Add them in !!! Currently, they don't do that, and it's hard to create some BI reports due to this. View full review »

I would love to see more functions built in inside the application, instead of being scripted. They already did some of that in the new release, version 5, like forecasting, trend lines, etc., and I would love to see more of these kinds of calculations, which we used to do it by scripts before.

I have no complaints. They work fast and have major releases on a predictable schedule. Customer service has been exceptional, and they have worked with us as partners to solve bugs that have been discovered. View full review »
