At the PASS Summit, I attended a session on Reporting Services Tips & Tricks. One of the things that I liked most was not a tip or trick, but a new feature coming in RS 2005. It's a calendar control for Date type parameters.
People have just come to expect these days that when they have to enter a date value that there will be some sort of calendar control right there so they can see a view of the month if they need to. It has been annoying that this did not exist in Reporting Services earlier. But soon, it will be here.
It has also been annoying that if your parameter is a Date/Time datatype that it would always display a time portion, even if you only wanted the Date. In RS 2005, it will now display only the Date if that's what you want.
HOORAY for simple improvements!
