Allow dynamic pictures in report group footers

Dynamic pictures can only be added to the Details section of a report, which means I can't take advantage of the Reporting functionality in Pro. I have an ArcMap workflow that runs LOS analyses on multiple Viewer Points to check the visibility of multiple Site Points. After the analyses are run, I generate a report that divides each page by Viewer Point and includes an image of the map showing the results of just that Viewer Point. The report is HTML rendered into a WinForms WebBrowser control so users can print to PDF (the client tends to frown on third-party libraries). I would love to use Pro's reporting engine to save the users the additional step and avoid the workaround, but right now I can't because of the dynamic picture restriction.

The attached image shows how I want to divide the report pieces in the designer. The Group Header and Details sections translate fine, but I can't add a dynamic image to the Group Footer.


Additionally, I'd like to ensure this includes the ability to add multiple dynamic images to the same report. Thank you!



This functionality will be available at Pro 2.9 (this fall).
