Because we are limited to the 3 MB custom visual size - we are not able to support all the fonts with the Export to PDF feature (each font family is 1MB in size).
Enterprise Edition customers however can use any custom font in the subscription scheduler for the export to PDF feature as this edition comes with database storage where additional font styles including custom corporate fonts can be stored.
Inforiver's default font is Antikor Mono which is similar to Segoe but is monospaced for numerals. Learn why we feel this font offers the best value for tabular reporting.
With our enterprise edition – you can save your theme, settings etc., and it would automatically download them based on your user profile as corporate theme and default settings.

You can use Inforiver data input templates to gather your budgets, forecasts, plans along with comments using row level security. For an advanced and connected xP&A / FP&A solution, we recommend ValQ. We are working on modernizing ValQ so that it can integrate with Inforiver's data & commentary input templates. ValQ is a separate offering requiring a separate subscription. Note that ValQ can be used for xP&A, FP&A and value driver planning.
All editions support formatted paginated export to excel in WYSIWYG with structure, format, and notes as is. The Premium edition provides additional customization options for Export to Excel, and they support Export to PDF too. Note: Export to PDF and Excel is possible only in Power BI Service (and not the Desktop). Once you publish your reports, the options should get enabled.
Inforiver works best with summarized and aggregated data. Your data model could contain billions of rows, but we recommend that using Power BI slicers you restrict the data assigned to Inforiver to be in summarized in nature.
Inforiver works in two different configurations: default and performance mode.
In the default mode, Inforiver retrieves all hierarchy levels from the semantic layer. This is done in order to provide advanced features at the visual level (like custom aggregations). However, Power BI brings only one hierarchy level of data at a time using a windowing technique. In a sense, it only fetches what you can see at a time. As Inforiver is architecturally different from Power BI, we recommend that you do NOT compare the performance of Inforiver matrix vs Power BI Matrix.
Effective release 2.7, Inforiver matrix offers a performance mode where Inforiver functions very similar to the native Power BI Matrix by fetching only one hierarchy level at a time. However the flip side is that this disables several features (like custom aggregations) which requires all hierarchy levels.
Inforiver supports collaboration with other users through real-time commenting, email notifications, scheduled excel & pdf reports and commentary digests.
Users can post, reply, and mention users; email notifications are sent on reply and mentions. Authors can restrict access on who can post comments in the visual. Comment digests can be scheduled at custom intervals which summarizes all comments made between each run.
However, these options are available only with Inforiver Enterprise.
Yes, users can be notified using commenting. @ can be used to lookup the list of users from one’s organization. This feature is available only in Inforiver Enterprise.
Inforiver writeback allows users to post the data and comments from the visual to a supported destination. Writeback is supported only in Inforiver Enterprise and the following destinations are supported
