Add a Preview Report button in Acumatica Report Designer

When creating/editing a report in the report designer, having the ability to preview the report within the designer without having to run the web application gives you better flexibility. The report designer should be efficient enough to handle such a standard feature that exist in most report designer tools.

    Why doesn't the preview mode give access to the report parameters? The report display can be dynamic based on options selected on the parameters.

    Shipped in 2018R2 Preview 2.

    Additional improvements to this functionality will be released in 2018R2 Beta (showing page borders like it is done in the web version in Report Viewer).

    Please note that even if the new version of Report Designer contains Preview tab, it will work only with the modern version of Acumatica server instance (2018R2 Preview 2 or higher). If you connect the new version of Report Designer to the older version of Acumatica server instance, Preview won't work (but of course all other functionality will be available).

    Thank you for you suggestion. It is planned for the next major release (2018R2).

    Why does the most popular idea on this site not have any feedback??  Denied, Maybe, Planned, Never......

    My 5c - this is excessive. Data must be retrieved from acumatica as it imposes secrity access restrictions and also Web look.

    This would save a lot of time going backwards and forwards between RD and Acumatica

    I was astonished to find out that the Acumatica Report Designer is missing this basic feature that has been around for decades.
