CRD (Crystal Reports Distributor) is an on-premise automation tool for Crystal Reports. This software is suitable for small and midsize businesses and provides tools to automate the generation and delivery of Crystal Reports. CRD is compatible with Windows operating systems.

Users can define report packages and run, schedule and share Crystal Reports. Reports can be exported in various formats including Word, Excel, CSV and PDF. Users can also share reports using services such as email, DropBox and SharePoint.

CRD enables users to schedule reports for a specific time and date or to run on an hourly, weekly, daily or custom basis. Event triggers can also be enabled to run reports when specific events occur.

The principal benefit we get from using CRD, is when we produce our month-end invoicing. Not only are we able to produce the output with separate format options (PDF and/or Excel), the invoices can be saved out to a file share using dynamic folder naming for archival purposes. We also deliver the invoices electronically to our customers via the email option. CRD supports the ability to set up multiple SMTP server options, which is very helpful for the invoicing process, to ensure we are sending our invoices through secure methods and can customize the sender Name and email address as necessary.

Pros

Dynamic folder and file name output options using the CRD constants.
Data Items
Using the address book to identify groups for email delivery for when an exchange DL is not available

Advice to Others

Utilize as much as you can the dynamic and/or Automation schedules. They can save a tremendous amount of time with report delivery.
