Module 3: Creating Paginated Reports

Now that you have learned about BI and data modelling, and how to access data from Report Designer and Report Builder, you need to learn how to create reports. This module shows you how to create different types of reports in both applications, in addition to using the Report Wizard.
Lessons

  • Creating a report with the report wizard
  • Creating a report
  • Publishing a report

Lab : Creating reports

  • Use the report wizard – report designer
  • Use the report wizard – report builder
  • Creating and publishing a report – report designer
  • Creating and publishing a report – report builder

Module 4: Working with Reporting Services Data

It is common for business requirements to change regarding the information they need and how they want data presented. On viewing a detailed report, senior management might ask for higher level, summarized, or filtered versions of the same report. Report Builder and Report Designer support these scenarios via filtering, sorting, drilldowns, grouping and the parameterizing of reports. In this module, you will see how to use filters and parameters to make reports more dynamic and useful to business users.
Lessons

  • Data filters
  • Report parameters
  • Implementing report filters and parameters

Lab : Create a parameterized report

  • Using parameters in report designer
  • Using parameters in report builder

Module 5: What’s New in SQL Server Reporting and BI

This module introduces reporting and BI enhancements and new features in SQL Server 2016.
Lessons

  • Reporting Services Enhancements
  • PowerBI Enhancements
  • Mobile Report Publisher

Lab : Implementing PowerBI

+ See more details

Module 5: Visualizing Data with Report Services

As the amount of data being generated continues to grow, the need to make sense of its meaning increases. You use data visualization to make data easier to understand, and faster to interpret. Data visualizations highlight comparisons, show trends, and convey scale much faster than a table of numbers could. The detail is important, but visualizations are a highly effective way of conveying meaning and insights quickly and accurately.
Lessons

  • Formatting data
  • Images and charts
  • Databars, sparklines, indicators, gauges, and maps

Lab : Manage formatting

  • Report designer
  • Report builder

+ See more details

Module 6: Summarizing Report Data

As the amount of data we need to deal with increases, so does the requirement to manage data by grouping and summarizing. In this module, you will learn how to create group structures, summarize data, and provide interactivity in your reports, so that users see the level of detail or summary that they need.
Lessons

  • Sorting and grouping
  • Report sub-reports
  • Drilldown and drill through

Lab : Summarizing report data

  • Sorting and grouping in report builder
  • Sorting and grouping in report designer

+ See more details

Module 7: Sharing Reporting Services Reports

When you have published a Reporting Services report, users can view the report interactively. In some situations, it can be advantageous to run reports automatically, either to improve performance through caching and snapshots, or to deliver reports to users—by using e-mail or other mechanisms. To run reports automatically, you need to understand how Reporting Services manages scheduling. This module covers report scheduling, caching and the report life cycle, and automatic subscription and delivery of reports.
Lessons

  • Schedules
  • Report caching, snapshots, and comments
  • Report subscription and delivery

Lab : Sharing reporting services reports

  • Create a shared schedule
  • Configure caching
  • Subscribe to a report

+ See more details

Module 8: Administering Reporting Services

System administrators take responsibility for the configuration and day-to-day operations of IT systems. In SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS), administrative tasks include the configuration of the web portal and web service, branding the web portal, and ensuring that access to sensitive reports is carefully controlled. Administrators also monitor and optimize performance.
Lessons

  • Administering reporting services
  • Reporting services configuration
  • Reporting services performance

Lab : Administering reporting services

  • Authorize access to reports
  • Web portal branding

+ See more details

Module 9: Extending and Integrating Reporting Services

Although Reporting Services is a powerful tool, its built-in capabilities might not always meet your needs. This module covers the methods for extending the functionality of Reporting Services with expressions and custom code. You will also learn about the methods for working with Reporting Services programmatically, and integrating Reporting Services reports into other applications.
Lessons

  • Expressions and embedded code
  • Extending reporting services
  • Integrating reporting services

Lab : Extending and integrating reporting services

  • Custom code – report designer
  • Custom code – report builder
  • URL access

Module 10: Introduction to Mobile Reports

This module introduces the design and publication of reports that are intended for consumption on mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets. Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) includes support for mobile reports, although the tools that are used to design and publish mobile reports are different to the tools used for the paginated reports discussed in the earlier modules of this course.
Lessons

  • Overview of mobile reports
  • Preparing data for mobile reports
  • Mobile report publisher

Lab : Introduction to mobile reports

  • Format data for a mobile report
  • Create a mobile report
  • Create KPIs
