Building a user-friendly GUI for Report Builder
I have a specific reporting requirement and would be very grateful for comments on the best way achieve it.
Schools currently produce a large number of reports in Excel for internal management purposes — these tend to be unique to each school — which is the rationale as to why I am looking to build a friendly application — they also require repetitive wrangling every time an updated report is required. The reports contain a combination of tables, visuals, and text.
The data for the reports will exist in an Azure SQL DB.
At present I am seeking advice about whether it is possible to develop an easy-to-use interface for MS Report Builder for schools to build and distribute reports based on a schedule specified by the user — these reports will be produced as pdfs and as MS Powerpoint and Word documents.
A number of specific templates will be designed for schools to adapt to their requirements — Is it feasible to consider developing an interface for report Builder/SSRS that is useable by school staff who have no technical knowledge???
Is there a better way to tackle this problem??
I’ve tried PowerBI, but it is too complex for most staff in schools, and last time I looked at it, there was very limited ways to reconfigure the UI to make it approachable for non-technical users.
