    My company is implementing reporting via Angular and a REST service. I've done some research and tinkered with the rendering extensions but I've been unable to determine if it's possible to render an interactive report, save it to some location, and load the report viewer at a later time.

    For example:

    1) A user schedules an interactive report in our system for a later date.

    2) A batch job calls the Report REST Service at the scheduled date and time to render the interactive report and save it some location.

    3) The user returns to the system at a later date and the interactive report is then loaded into the Report Viewer, rather than having Report Viewer call the REST service directly.

    Is this even possible? Or will we have to settle for saving scheduled reports as PDFs?

    Any and all information is appreciated!

    Hi Julian,

    Interactive rendering extensions (IMAGEInteractive, HTML5Interactive, XAMLInteractive, WPFXAMLInteractive) are used internally by viewers to allow interaction with the content e.g., toggling the visibility of items/sections. Interactive rendering extensions are for internal use only.
    By default Telerik Reporting outputs reports in the following formats: Image, PDF, HTML, MHTML, Excel 97-2003, XLSX, PPTX, DOCX, RTF, XAML and CSV.

    You might find more information in Rendering Extensions article.

    Additionally, Scheduling Telerik Reports and Reports Management are features that we provide with Telerik Report Server product.
    The Report Server is a repository for housing and managing Telerik Reports. It is a lightweight, server-based, Windows web-application that provides comprehensive reports management functionality.

    Progress Telerik

    I figured that was the case based on research and testing but I had just wanted to verify. Thank you, Silviya!
