    That's a very cool idea. We created an Excel spread sheet with canned queries to do basically the same thing. Largely because a lot of the data was more readable that way.

    Reporting was one of those things where SCCM 2012 dropped something that worked and replaced it with something that doesn't. That's not just SRS, but also how complex many of the queries, particularly around applications and compliance have become. Creating a report on a package in SCCM 2007 took 15 minutes, doing the same thing in SRS with Applications can take hours, or longer.

    The SRS reports look sort of pretty, but they are based on a template that the rest of us don't have access to. Making decent looking reports is a LOT of WORK, for little or no gain.

    Also, maybe its time someone went through all the reports and got rid of about 90% of them. Seriously, do we really need a report on modems?

    A better interactive tool for reporting for all of System Center is needed, one not based on SRS.
