  1. Access Tags through API

    It would be great if the tags were accessable throrough the Report object in the API. This would allow us to create the datasource necessary to support the template by interrogating the template.

    In my case, I want to be able to create the template using a complex schema. Then when it comes time to generate the reports through the Engine, I can build the actual XML dataset that would only contain the data that template needs.

    I'm sure others would come up with other uses for this. It would seem this is already something you must have for AutoTag…

  2. Allow Data Validation to propagate to the new document.

    Data Validation constrains the values of a cell to items in a predetermined range. This would allow selection lists to be populated by AutoTag select statements.

  3. I need better error handling

    Just been working for a couple of hours now, but I found error handling to be poor. Exceptions are thrown with no clear error messages. Documentation is missing (TagException seems bo no exist according to the knowledge base).

  4. Refresh data source

    I think it would be useful to have an ability to quickly re-read a data source using some kind of button in the ribbon. For example, if I have an XML data source and its structure is changing while I'm working on a report, I have to go to the Data Sources, click Edit, Test, OK.

  5. referencing other worksheets in formulas in generated Excel reports

    When you write a formula in a template that references another cell on the same sheet, it increments the row number on each new row that is added by a foreach loop.
    It would be great if this worked the same way for formulas referencing other worksheets.

  6. Keyboard shortcuts

    Keyboard shortcuts would be very helpful...Like inserting Out tag, generate a document etc. Also possibility to customize own shortcuts.
