Jedox Feature Voting Tool

Dear Jedox User,

in our continuous strive to improve our services, features and to help you gain your share of this ever growing market we are introducing the Jedox Feature Voting System.
This new service is currently exclusively available for you, our Users and Partners.

What is this Jedox Feature Voting System?
It is a tool that provides you with the options to create and vote on Feature request, Ideas and any other general Feedback.
This in return provides us with the necessary Information to react and provide you with the things you need.

We invite you to browse this Page, create and vote on new Features, Ideas and requests!

How can we improve Jedox Software?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Central/global reusable macro modules

    If you need the same macro in different workbooks you currently have only 2 options:
    - copy & paste the macro into all relevant workbooks
    - use external PHP files.

    But external PHP files are not really handy when you want to provide deployment packages of your reports. Furthermore it makes maintenance more clumsy if you have your codes in 2 different places.

    It would be great if you could create central/global macro modules directly in the file manager. Those then could be referenced and used in different workbooks:
    require module ("MyGlobalModule2");

    Another alternative for better reusability could be to…

  2. Move objects (button,chart,checkbox) when (un-)hiding rows/columns

    When you use the functions HIDECOLUMN and HIDEROW to hide/unhide columns and rows certain objects on the spreadsheet stay in their position and are not moved accordingly ..this affects charts, Buttons, checkboxes etc.

    It would be great to be able to configure the behaviour:
    - keep position on screen after hiding/unhiding rows or columns
    - change position on hiding/unhiding
    (respectively stay connected to the original row/column)

    In an advanced mode it would also be great to configure this differently for design mode and user mode ..but this is really nice to have.

    This Feature request might be also connected to…

  3. Userdefined palette

    When choosing a color palette for dynamic charts, only a small number of pre-defined palettes is available.
    A user should be able to define a color palette himself and use it in Jedox Web.

  4. Positioning of charts depending on cell position & size (Dynarange)

    Current situation when combining charts with dynaranges:

    Design Mode:
    - you create a chart next to a dynarange and give it a certain size

    Result in User Mode:
    - the chart will be stretched to a bigger size according to the expansion of the dynarange

    This can sometimes be avoided by using frames or by other workarounds, but those work arounds are not really applicable for professional real life solutions,
    For example if you use frames already for other purposes, esp. for menu bar structures then you don't have this option (as frames cannot be nested into each other).

    So…

  5. Adhoc Analysis: usability like Excel Pivot Table

    Currently we have basic adhoc analysis capabilities in Jedox Web via paste view / edit view.
    But when you really need to analyze your business you have a lot of navigation steps with different combinations of dimensions, hierarchies, elements, levels of details etc.

    Here it is annyoing to click everytime on "edit view", change dimensions and hierarchies and then go back to the report to see the results (and maybe notice that you did something wrong / need to change something again).

    It would bring much more benefit to have the list of dimensions, hierarchies and elements as well as…

  6. Choose Timerange by DatePicker

    Such a function is standard for all other Reporting Tools.
    You only state a start and enddate and the all data in between are selected.
    With that functionality Jedox would reach another level of usability.
    Working with the reports would be much more effective and faster.

  7. Column and Row Groups with Expand & Collapse (+/-) like in MS Excel

    In MS Excel you can easily create column and row groups by just marking the respective area. Then you have [+]/[-] buttons outside the grid to expand & collapse these groups.

    It would be great to have this functionality also in Jedox Excel.
    Especially if you have a lot of those groups, it is more user friendly and better maintainable than adding a lot of "free-flow buttons"+HIDEROW/HIDECOLUMN formulas onto the sheet.

    One level would be enough at first..multiple levels would be nice-to-have.

    Thanks
    JC

  8. Vertical text allignment in cells (Top, center and bottom)

    It is today possible to allign the text horizontaly (left, center and right) but expecially with merged cells it would be great to have the possibility to allign the text vertically in the top, down and center direction.

    This would make the reports look much better and also eliminate the work around of trying to center a text in the vertical direction by increasing the font size, which not always work but gives alot of iriitation when build the reports and finalizing the layout touch.

  9. Hide all #VALUE errors (Alle #WERT-Fehler ausblenden)

    Especially on opening or reloading a workbook for a short moment there may be displayed lots of #VALUE errors, while Jedox is retrieving data.
    Only possibility to hide these currently is an optional formatting for text color to match background color - what is a lot of work as soon as one uses different colors on worksheet.
    Proposal: Option to hide all #VALUE errors in Report-Manager and/or File-Manager. A default should be possible do define and maybe also the user should be able to toggle visibility of #VALUE errors in menu.

  10. Drillthrough decimal symbol same as on screen/report

    Decimal symbols are currently linked to the user-locale. English setting will give a dot (.) as decimal symbol whereas the Dutch setting, for example, will give a comma (,)

    This feature works on the screens/reports, but this does not happen with drillthrough values. So, in the Dutch locale, drillthrough values still have the dot (.) as a decimal symbol instead of comma.

    This is confusing.

    The best solution is to have the user determine the decimal symbol (and thousands separator) personally for both situations (screens and drillthrough).

    But at least drillthough-appearance should be in sync with the screens.

  12. Pagebreak in PDF prints

    Wenn printing PDF pages it is sometimes needed that you can define where the page are broken, so that you can control what is shown on page 1, 2 etc.

    This is a feature which will improve the usability for the viewer of the reports made in Jedox.

  13. DynaRange at the intersection of two parent DynaRanges

    I have a particular situation where a client sells a set of products on a daily basis. They want to report the sales order numbers for each product per week/ month

    Hence, I have a vertical dynarange for product, and horizontal for time. I would like to have a vertical dynarange at the intersection of the two parent dynaranges.

    Jedox already supports Nested DynaRanges. So, this is essentially the next level of Nesting.

  14. Drill Through Window > Size

    Currently the size of the pop-up window is far too small in relation to monitors normally used in an office environment.
    a) Maximize size automatically
    b) Create possibility to define size sumhow (at least in some ini/config file or system variable)

  15. Sorted as default

    In several areas, elements are sorted by creation data as opposed to name and this makes selection difficult. For instance:
    - in modeler and subset editor, dropdown to select a database
    - in modeler, list of cubes
    - in subset editor, select Alias
    - in formulas PALO.DATABASE_LIST_CUBES and PALO.DATABASE_LIST_DIMENSIONS

    The formulas are the most problematic because the result is an array that cannot be sorted. When I want to compare dimensions and cubes from 2 different databases and the dimensions and cubes were not created in the exact same order, it doesn't line up ...

  16. Searchable Combobox

    Any other tool allows a google-like search. If customers have no reasonable or detailed hierarchy for their clients, items, supplier (...) and can only use an "All"-Element as top hierarchy node, they need to search through many pages before they can find the customer they want to look at.
    A search box would suite them well and allow faster analytics.

  17. dynarange - vizualization of drilldown possibility

    DynaRanges already allow to give basic formatting and define which levels are displayed and which can be drilled down to. At bigger Jedox rollouts we faced the difficulty to point out to users that they can drill down certain parts of the report and had to work with conditional formatting. It would be great, if this would be supported natively by Jedox. This could be achieved by either of:

    1. '+' - icon in front of element (selectable in dynarange options)
    2. mouseover effect (chaning mouse icon or miniture tooltip)
    3. formatting of drillable levels according to formatting in dynarange…

  18. Add new fonts to Jedox Web

    It would be a huge advantage if you could add your own fonts to Jedox Web. Especially in terms of corporate design it is necessary.

  19. Notification function to inform users / maintenance mode

    Please provide a function to inform users (based on groups) about certain events / changes etc. in three different ways (non exclusive):

    1. small popup at login whereby message creator can set whether info is only displayed once per user or until message is deactivated

    2. Email notification based on user-Property

    3. maintenancemode Jedox Web for deployment phase that notifies user and temporarily block file- and reportmanager or certain hierarchies from using

  20. Hide Sheet Selector

    At the moment, we have the option to show/hide the below attributes on a frameset:

    Hide horizontal scrollbar
    Hide vertical scrollbar
    Hide sheet selector
    Use for export
    (see frames.png)

    It would be useful to also have these options on an individual web spreadsheet (wss).

    Right now if you want to make the report appear without a tab (ie without the sheet selector), you need to put the spreadsheeet into a frame (and e.g. add a blank worksheet so you have two in the frame).

    This is esp relevant when you want more real estate for the report on a mobile…
