Is it possible to save a report's parameters so the user doesn't have to choose all the parameters each time they're running the report?

    Accepted Solution

    You can set default values for parameters either when designing the report on when deployed through Report Manager interface.  Other than that, depending on what interface they have , the parameters are only preserved while they keep a window open.  They can run a report with the parameters set and then change one or more and run it again.

    It looks like our client decided to use the scheduled report (and how you can save parameters in there).
