  1. Converting text to a number before sorting

    Currently the only way to cast a value to an integer is through an out tag. If we have a text field that is a number we would like to convert it to numeric in the for each loop and then sort it numerically. For example if we have 01, 2, 3, 4, 05, 06 the current sort order comes out as 01, 05, 06, 2, 3, 4. We would need to convert these values to a number in the for each loop using NUMBERVALUE or CAST and then sort on these values. Currently we are only able to convert…

  2. Support Google Analytics as a datasource

    We use Google Analytics in our marketing along with other sources of data like HubSpot and SQL. Please support Google Analytics as a datasource so that we can join these databases together in our templates.

  3. Support TSQL PIVOT Operator

    Working with poorly designed SQL database with absolutely no normalization. Have many tables with repeating groups, ie: item1, item2, item3, item4, item5, etc. The TSQL Pivot operator allows me to turn a single row with 5 items into 5 rows. Then I could ForEach through the rows.

  5. RESTful Engine does not support ReportText!

    We current switched from the .NET engine to the RESTful engine and discovered that we lost the ability to create Text reports. For some reason the RESTful engine does not support this simple file output. Can you please put this feature into the RESTful engine? We have many customers that require text reports that are directly loaded into mainframes and/or other hardware and we can't provide any other file format.

  6. Allow more than one field for Ordering the data

    I am currently using Json file as my Data Source, not sure if other data source have same problem. Currently we can sort data based on only field, some times we need to sort the data based on multiple fields. Please try to accommodate this change in the upcoming release.

  7. Would be great if the account had the ability to see usuage of the windward product over time and in the different environments.

    Would be great if the account had the ability to see usuage of the windward product over time and in the different environments. This obviously would be good for the scout license. But this would also be useful in general if the app fed usuage stats to the account and to be able to report on or take a data on feed from even on enterprise licence.

  8. Add Excel as a supported data source type

    Backward as it seems, it would support platform-independence.

    I'm developing an app right now for the small business where I work that interfaces with a SQL Server ERP to do unsupported processing before reporting. But, using Excel as a buffer means that if they change to an Oracle ERP I won't have to change the code - just create a query in the new ERP to generate the spreadsheet. Moreover, Excel is supported and working fine in the designer - it shouldn't take much to add it for the engine.

  9. Multiple Print

    We are trying to use the RESTful Engine to print reports (autotag templates). Currently, there is no feature to send a request for multiple copies of a job. If you need to print 3 copies of the same report, you will need to send the job 3 times. It will be great if you can command to have number of copies to print.

  10. Documentation/comment-Tag

    In a way, the WW templates that we create, are code. I mean: You define parameters, format data, perform calculations, if/else, loops, etcetera. Basically: Code.

    However, when you write code, you always add comments to your code so you will still understand why you implemented a certain part of the code 1 year later. Or someone else working on the same project of course. So I would like to be able to add a small comment in the template saying "Comment by Jacco: using this variable/loop to define blabalbla, for further context, check X". However, at this moment I don't…
