This product would benefit from a better "join" function that is more intuitive. The "Group By" should be defaulted to "group" when a field is added. When there is a calculated field, the automatic "group by" doesn’t work. Instead, it needs to be done manually for that field. Occasionally, it has some odd issues after a Windows update, although support is pretty good at offering short-term solutions and fixing them in future releases. Table joins are not working properly the whole time. We have experienced query breaking when visualized, after editing in the script. You can’t use the visual to add two calculations on one field. Rather, it has to be scripted. On the scheduling server, some scheduled reports just sit there and never execute for the first time. After manually executing the first time, they run with no issues.
