Applies To: Dynamics 365 (online), Dynamics 365 (on-premises), Dynamics CRM 2016, Dynamics CRM Online

The following report managing activities can’t be performed when the local Microsoft Dynamics 365 system remains in the offline mode:

However, you can retrieve the published reports in the offline mode by using the RetrieveRequest message and the RetrieveMultipleRequest message. This enables you to view the reports in the Microsoft Dynamics 365 Report Viewer and the Reports list.


We don’t recommend that you use the ReportFolder, ReportName, and ReportServerUrl global variables in reports that run in the offline mode. These variables are members of the Globals collection that contains the global variables for the report, such as execution time, number of pages, and report name.
