Reporting data setup tool in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017

Hi All,
    Today, I came with amazing article in NAV 2017 i.e. "Reporting data setup tool in NAV 2017".
First of all, I would like to say thanks to NAV developers to add the amazing data setup tool.

    Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017

Demo preset configuration
    This script was written to support Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017. To run this demonstration, ensure that a demo site has been created, is up and running and that you have logged on. 

Login information
Domain: The Nail Superstore
User: Binesh
Password: Pass@word1

Demo instructions
    The demonstration scenarios assume that you have created a new company using the ‘The Nail Superstore’ functionality using the Dynamics NAV 2017 settings. This functionality will not be available in the Cronus sample companies.
The demonstrations scenarios build on each other.

Demo data preparation
    For demo purpose use Business Manager.  This will be the default role when the site is provisioned.

   Demo 1 – Binesh creates a new reporting data set
