Hi all,
I wonder whether is possible to put a new line character in report description property so that users can have a better reading of information from Report Manager?
For example, a report called "New Employee Report", and in report manager, I hope users can see something like below before he even opens the report:
1. This report is for ..
2. Pleas consult xxx before ..
3. blah blah.

Is that even possible?

Not that I am aware of. The SSRS report site is pretty basic in that sense. In Details View, you can see all the text at least. In Tile View, I have not figured out how to even have it display all your text.

You can add this by consuming reporting services webservice through .NET code and set description. For setting multiline description use vbCrLf as new line character inside logic where you set the description
