The new Report Designer Add-In is the newest addition to the Report Designer module which presents an alternative to the current report layout generator, to empower users to take control of all design aspects of their reporting layouts.

The model behind the new feature introduced by this add-in is to break down a report into reusable pieces and then allow users to control where and how these pieces fit together to create a report. These pieces are Microsoft® Excel® functions which communicate with a new In-Memory processing engine, which will guarantee performance by being able to crunch financial numbers very quickly.

The positioning of the Report Designer Add-In within the overall Sage Intelligence Reporting product is illustrated in the below diagram.
