When we sign up for Dynamics 365 for Financials, we get access to a demonstration company (called Cronus). The demonstration company contains sample data like sample orders, invoices, ledger entries etc., which lets us explore the application, view charts and reports with sample data.

Scheduling Reports in Dynamics 365 for Financials

Reports are an important part of our day to day work and most of the times, we have specific reports which are important to us and we would like to view these reports everyday or on a regular basis.

In Project Madeira, you can schedule reports to run in the background immediately or at a scheduled time during non peak hours!
