NAV User Sessions when designing/refreshing reports

There has often been confusion over the years about Jet Express, Essentials or Professional consuming a Dynamics NAV licence user session whenever a Jet Report is either designed or refreshed.  Many users have simply not been made aware of this fact and so are surprised when they get an error message that there are insufficient […]


Jet Reports opens UK office

Long overdue!  Jet Reports now has a full-time presence in the UK, based in London.  Jet Reports UK Ltd has appointed Paul Hollcraft as Managing Director and he is currently recruiting to build a business development team around him.   Paul is very familiar with the Jet Reports scene in the UK and Ireland, having […]


Options first!

This is probably an addition to the Best Practices blog, but when designing the Options sheet for your report please remember to drag the Options tab to the front of your workbook.  Options needs to be the first sheet in your report.  Failure to do so can slow up a perfectly good report or even […]


Some useful Excel Shortcuts

One of our sources of amusement or mild frustration during our Starter Training course is when we explain the functionality of the Jet Reports “Fit” command and then ask trainees to type the command on Row 1 of the worksheet and then to copy it across on Row 1 above all their report column headers……  If one […]


Brexit: Pricing & Margins

One of the joys of working at Measure Metrics is that we get to work with some very smart CEO’s, CFO’s and their senior management teams. Almost without exception their most vexatious problem in 2H16 has been pricing and margins – how to best set the new prices and how to make sure that the […]

Table Cache – Improving report performance when using the NAV Web Services Connector

Table Cache improves the performance of many reports, especially when using the web services data connection. The functionality of Table Cache is to retrieve (one table at a time) as much of the data that will be required by the replicating functions within a report as practical. Jet Essentials/Professional functions can then use this cached data for […]


Jet Reports releases Jet Professional 2017

Jet Reports this week announced the release of Jet Professional 2017 and included within it their new secure web portal.  Use of the new portal is optional, but it allows all users – whether at corporate head office or out in the field – to have a centralised shared source for all ‘official’ corporate reports as well […]


Jet Essentials to be rebranded as Jet Professional

Those working on (what was) the Jet Essentials 2016 Beta program will be aware that with its impending final release, Jet Reports will be rebranding the product as Jet Professional 2016. At Measure Metrics we really welcome this change of name – with so many ‘Essentials’ brands in the market place today implying ‘basic’ or ‘lo-cost’, especially amongst […]


The benefits of Enhanced Assistance
