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. Aggregated total of a subset via PALO.DATA

    It should be possible to get an aggregated total value across dynamic selections from the OLAP server.
    Example: get a total revenue value accross selected products matching a certain criteria.

    So it should be possible to get an aggregated total of a subset out of a single PALO.DATA formula,
    like this:

    PALO.DATA ("myDB","ProductCube",PALO.SUBSET(<filter/conditions>), ...)

    instead of only getting the value for dimension elements via:
    PALO.DATA ("myDB","ProductCube","ProductGroupA", ...)

  2. Additional argument in PALO.DATA function to omit hashtag (#) sign for data splashing

    There are uses cases when data input on consolidated level is required and using # is only an additional step for end-user. PALO.DATA function should have an optional argument that would enable inputs on consolidated levels without using #.

  3. Historize consolidation factors

    A possibility to set consolidation factors depending of several dimensions would dramatically increase the slowly changing dimensions (SCD, see Kimball's bibles) management possibility of Jedox OLAP server.

    Example:
    in 2014 is my Regions hierarchy as follows:
    West
    => France
    => Germany
    => Belgium
    East
    => Poland

    in 2015 Germany will be moved in East:
    West
    => France
    => Belgium
    East
    => Poland
    => Germany

    To manage that I must have 2 different element "West" and "West-2015". That's ok for such a trivial example but when dealing with P&L hierarchy for instance that can really become very complex, especially for the…

  4. Offer a data filter for sorting

    n other tools there is beside data filter definition for the values a seperate definition for sorting.
    For what purpose?

    There is a sales report for example with two columns (Year 1, Year 2)
    and several rows (Items).
    In data filter for values you define Year1 and Year2.
    If you want to get items sorted for Year1, the only way in Jedox is to do it in datafilter. But then you will miss those items, wich have only values in Year2, but not in Year1.
    With a seperate data filter for sorting you won't loose them.
    This is good practice.

  6. Rule Editor usability/GUI - grouping in folders

    The rule editor is very powerful but hard to understand from a business user point of view. The user interface could be improved in terms of usability and structure.
    A grouping of rules in a folder structure would help a lot here rather than having all rules in a huge list. However users may need to switch between folder and list view to check the order of the rules.

  8. Splashing for string elements

    Possibility to splash a string to aggregated cell so every base cell will have the same string afterwards. Practically this would mean adding support for splashing strings via splash operation ! and also adding support for copy operation with strings. #12251

  10. Offline Copies

    Ability for users to download offline copies of the database for reporting that they can query locally. This is a feature that MIK-ONE had and is a stumbling point for many of our customers who have field based staff who quite often have no internet access.

  11. Add support for lowest X elements ( e.g. 'Flop 10') in a Subset

    Currently only supported whole positive values are supported for the data filter, e.g. 'Top 10' values. It should be possible to use negative values to define e.g. -10 for 'Flop 10' values. #15332

  12. PALO.EPARENT and PALO.ELEVEL relative to specific root element (parallel hierarchies)

    PALO.EPARENT and PALO.ELEVEL work well if you have only 1 hierarchy within a dimension.

    But if you have more than one hierarchy it would be great to give a certain root element as parameter and get the parent and or the level in exactly this specific tree.

  13. Hide specific dimension elements to reporting user

    Sometimes we create some elements just as helpers for certain calculations or tricks (kind of dummy elements) .. those helper elements are not intended to be used for reporting.
    Therefore it would be great to be able to mark them as invisible,
    so that they do not appear in paste view dialogs or insert element dialogs or similar.

    thanks :)

  14. consolidated element children as rule targets (targeting all child elements)

    It would be great to set a consolidated element as rule target
    in a specific mode, where the rule is targeting all child elements.

    Example:

    ['ProductGroup A'] = ...

    is then addressing

    Produkt A1
    Produkt A2
    Produkt A3
    ..

    which are all members of ['ProductGroup A'].

    -> so the rule would affect all single products instead of the product group (cons. element) itself.

  15. Extend DB Script generation (cube+related dimensions, select multiple db objects)

    The option to generate DB scripts is really great!
    But currently you can only create scripts for single db objects (dimensions, cubes) or for the whole db in total.

    It would be great if Jedox would offer some options to save time.

    1.
    when I create a db script for a cube, I would need the option to
    also create scripts for the related dimensions

    2.
    in general it would be great if I could select multiple cubes and/or dimensions from a list to generate the scripts for them

    Thanks

  16. Attributes / Flags for Rules

    Hi Jedox team,

    currently we only have a comment section to add additional information to a rule.
    But especially for automated processing of rules via ETL it would be great to be able to mark/flag certain rules in a more structured way.

    In the first step just one additional field would be enough.
    (name could be "Tag")

    Maybe later it could be extended to something similar to the attributes for dimension elements.

  17. Creation/update timestamp for common objects

    This would be great to have a creation or update timestamp for common objects (like it is the case for rules for instance)

    This would allow to know better what has to be migrated from a server to another for instance

  18. Enable Audit logging option for "14days"

    Currently there is only the option of choosing 1,7 30 or 365 days of audit logging. Our customers that are interested in this functionality want the options of 14 days, as 1 week simply might not be enough time to catch a mistake. On the other hand, 30 days is too much. This should be simple to implement as it is just between the 7 days and 30 days options.

  19. show explicit right when inherited

    in #_GROUP_DIMENSION_<dim name> cube this is really complex to know what is the right for a certain group since it can be inherited from upper levels, for instance:

    Europe N
    West <empty>
    France R

    this would be great to be able to see that, say using a "flag" to state the inheritance:

    Europe N
    West N (inherited from Europe)
    France R

  20. Allow multiple consolidation of an element

    sometimes you have to be able to consolidate the same element multiple times, for instance with consolidation factor=0 (for instance when you built a hierarchy tailor-made for a report, and you want empty rows for presentation purposes)
