    The best option I see is to provide templates per data sources/data set for the end users with the predefines resources.
    This way you can create the templates already in "Corporate Design". Just take care the end user don't overwrite the templates, but save them a copy ("Save as").

    It's not clear for me what you mean? Do you mean to create a shared data source with Report Builder? AFAIk you can't do it in RB, but in Report Manager portal.

    Hi @edr013 ,
    I'm sorry I don't know what you are trying to achieve.
    Use Below mentioned URL.Maybe it helps you to open Reportbuilder URL in SQl Server 2016.with the help of WebBrowser in C#. now we can open Reports builder Successfully.

    URL With Html encoding :-"reportbuilder:Action=Edit&ItemPath=%2FProject%2FReports%2FRealization&Endpoint=http%3A%2F%2F101.11.11.111%3A80%2FReportServer"

    URL without HTML encoding :- "reportbuilder:Action=Edit&ItemPath=Project/Reports/Realization&Endpoint=http//" If report builder not install first we need to install in local machine after that it's working.

    Thanks for the response,. I do open reports in Report Builder with the URL's as indicated above with encoding.
    I wanted to take a step ahead for the users while creating new reports. I do have multiple data sources. It helps to end-users to avoid that selection while creating the reports. Also wanted to know, if I can preload any shared dataset while creating the reports. All these wanted to do while am navigating users from my web application to Report Builder (installed on the client machine).
