This is a great product that allows data analysts to schedule queries for execution against connected data sources. You can import data dictionaries, which should result in field tips being available. As you run a query and wait for results, it prompts you to describe the various joins. You can also create standardized queries and publish them, with others having the ability to review and sign off on those queries.

Pros

Scheduled queries, field name documentation, ability to import data dictionaries, verified queries

Cons

Exports of automatically scheduled queries are in CSV format without an Excel option. For users who would just open up the file in Excel, all numeric test fields with leading zeros will be incorrectly assumed to be numeric and the leading zeros will be lost (you'd need to import the text file to Excel and choose the data format or use the data connections from Excel or Power BI)
