What can the designer do?
The report designer allows developers and users to create, develop, edit, view, save, export, and print custom reports without issues.
FastReport Desktop works independently without integration into Visual Studio, and it also supports scaling, undo/redo buffers, rulers, and extension lines. The designer can be used at runtime, allowing your users to independently modify existing documents and create new ones. Additionally, the designer can be used in MDI (Multi-Document Interface) mode to work with multiple reports simultaneously.

Are such reports secure?
The protection of your analyzed data is very important to us. We offer you three ways to enhance the confidentiality of your documents.
Method 1. In the “Security” tab, specify a password that will be required to open the report. The password-protected report is saved in an encoded format, so remember your password! It will be nearly impossible to recover the report in this case.
Method 2. Enhance the security of your data by using your encryption key. In this case, you can open the report file properly only in your program.
Method 3. Apply additional report customization to grant permission for printing, editing, and copying text and graphics from the document.
How does the scheduling work?
You can set up the generation of reports daily, weekly, or monthly with a detailed analysis of all the information. FastReport Desktop is perfect for creating quarterly reports, monthly sales analyses, and generating payment documents daily.
Customize the schedule according to your needs. Schedule report generation only when the computer starts up. Or enable automatic report creation upon system login.
You can do the following with the ready files:
- Save them locally and then download them with a mouse click.
- Print them once the generation is complete.
- Upload them to cloud storage such as OneDrive, Dropbox, Google Drive, box, email, and FTP.
