SQL Server 2016 RC0 SSRS and Mobile Report Features

SQL Server 2016 RC0 hit the streets today and I just barely got it installed in my test sandbox.  I’ve been using the CTP 3.2 & 3.3 previews and anxious to see if a few broken or missing features are working  now …so here it goes…

The Mobile Report Publisher was (how shall I put it) a little fragile in CTP 3.3.  Let’s see how it does in the release candidate:

First Thing – Mobile Report Publisher had some issues before this release but I had no problems building a simple report.  No weird video issues…


But will it style?  The color styling features didn’t work in the last version…

OK! Styling works with all the color palette choices!  Nice.


The phone and tablet layouts were wonky in the previous version.  Let’s see what happens if…


Tablet layout visualizes and seems to work as designed.

Last but certainly not least …phone…


WORKS, ding dig ding, we have  winner!

Stay tuned.  I promise more, later after I’ve had a chance to do some serious mobile report design and testing.

  1. Where is the download link to the latest version of the Mobile Report Publisher? The last version I’ve seen is the Public Preview 2 which was released last month.

  2. Nice to see that mobile support is working. I am curious how to get access to SSRS reports when a worker is outside the domain, how can SSRS authenticate the user?
