Jet Professional 2017 – Introduction and Installation

Why to switch to and What’s New in Jet Professional 2017?

Its valid question same came to my mind also when i heard about new Release.

Then i tried to explore a bit about it and got an information about some exciting features introduced with it. I will discuss as i progress with my evaluation and exploration with these features.

Here i am giving bit overview about some features and limit to Installation topic in this post. If you wish to know more you will have to wait for my next few upcomming posts.

As per Jet Report Sources:

Jet Professional 2017 makes sharing your reports easier than ever before!  

Reporting with (and without) the Jet add-in for Excel

The Jet Web Portal is an online interface that provides an easy-to-manage repository for your organization’s reports.

Using the web interface and Office 365 Online, you can allow any of your network users – whether they have Excel and the Jet add-in installed or not – to view reports directly from their web browser.

Jet Mobile for Jet Enterprise

Jet Professional integrates with the Jet Mobile web client – allowing you to log into one site to see and run all your reports – and to see all of your business intelligence dashboards.

And… Jet Mobile for Jet Enterprise includes many new features – making your dashboards more powerful and even easier to use.

What’s New?

Publishing to the Jet Web Portal

The Jet ribbon within Excel includes the ability to publish your reports to the Jet Web Portal.  The Jet Web Portal provides a manageable repository for your organization’s reports. All your users – whether they have Excel and Jet Professional installed or not – can run and view reports directly from their web browser.

What is Jet Web Portal

Jet Professional 2017 represents a new way to manage, run and view your business reports. Designed for today’s always-connected, always-moving workforce, Jet Professional 2016 introduces a new Information Management System that allows business users access to their business reports using virtually any device through a simple web interface.

As a user, you don’t need to install anything to run and view reports. Within the Jet Web Portal, you can quickly find the report that you’re after, specify report parameters, run the report to get up-to-the-minute data and view it in Excel Online.

With features like sharing, search, version control and report permissions, Jet Professional 2017 is a complete report management system.
