Crystal Reports XI provides for dynamic and cascading prompts. This means that report designers can base report prompts on dynamic values. They no longer need to maintain static prompt value lists within individual reports and they can reuse existing prompts stored in the repository.
The new RTF export format is excellent for report export editing. This complements the existing RTF export of optimized accuracy and forms processing. The result is that the end user is now able to enhance and expand a report in standard word processing applications.
Pictures and graphics can now be placed in a report through a link in the database so that it is no longer necessary to store images within the database. This supports the common practice of storing images on the web server and storing references to those images in the database.
New drag-and-drop charting and cross-tabs allow for intelligent charting approximates variables when a chart is dropped into a section. Chart design is now faster and easier because charts will be updated automatically when new variables are added.
The iterative report design/view process is streamlined, with a new HTML preview that allows report authors to see how reports will look when published to the web.
Use the Dependency Checker to instantly find broken links, formula errors, and dependency issues before reports are published and distributed.
Using the Workbench and the Repository Explorer, users can easily browse, build, and publish object packages. With object packages, users can schedule, manage, and secure a group of reports together rather than just one report at a time.
The Workbench allows users to keep projects organized by grouping reports according to preference.
The new Repository Explorer simplifies navigation within the BusinessObjects Enterprise system and reporting components can be easily shared among users within the Crystal Reports Designer.
Designing reports is easier with the Getting Started page that appears each time you open Crystal Reports. The updated Visual Report Designer allows you to point and click so you can create reports without the need for intensive coding.
Crystal Reports XML, JDBC, IBM DB2, and Exchange data drivers have been updated to give you an incredible range of data access options.

Report export configuration information can be saved with the report so that end users forgo the time and trouble of reconfiguring the export each time a report is run.
Hierarchical grouping has been enhanced, providing increased layout control so that users can create their reports in a hierarchical, rather than just a relational, manner. This provides a better fit for organizational charts and summary reports.
Parameterized control for N value for top N style reports means that a single report will meet the needs of multiple users. This will reduce the total number of reports that are created and supported.
