Automator

If you are using Automator today, you know how wonderful it is to schedule reports to just show up in your Inbox when you need them. In fact, many customers have been using Automator so much that we got the message that you needed more tools and features to better manage the workload. Data Access Studio Version 7 introduces the following additional capabilities:

  • Multiple queues to run more than one job at a time
  • Run Automator jobs on multiple servers (additional licensing)
  • Recovery for missed or failed jobs
  • Terminate a running task
  • View historical information about jobs and logs directly from DAS7

  • Debug a row or cell in your report by showing evaluated calculation values
  • Disable calculations that are not yet complete

Publish to Folder

Many of our existing customers told us that it was important for them to be able to select the public folder that they wanted to publish a report to rather than require a folder administrator to place it there. This capability was added in Version 7.
