Report Clean Up

I suppose the best part about the new job is the freedom.

We don't really have people telling us what to do in what order.

As long as the work gets done.

And the work flows in from many directions, tickets, phone calls, emails, face to face, etc.

So I thought it would be a good idea to clean up the SSRS reports.

So I didn't have to ask anyone, just decided to do it.

So I've been going through all the SSRS reports, adding them to Projects, adding centralized data sources, verify that they run, removing legacy reports, etc.

And it's been taking me a long time, already 3 hours into the project, about 1/3 of the way through.

However, the long term benefits outweigh the grunt work.

Everything will be in projects by folder in Team Foundation Server (Source code repository).

And maintaining and adding new reports going forward will be a lot simpler.

Sure nobody asked me to clean up the reports, it just seemed like a job that needed to get done, so I volunteered.

And there you have it!
