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. Exclusive system access / Maintenance mode

    Sometimes you don't want to have regular users on the system because you are recovering from a backup or are changing user rights heavily. At the moment you must de-activate users which can cause a lot of confusion in the company and requires some preparation time. It would be beneficial if you can just set the whole system into a maintenance mode - restricting access to the maintaining team (maybe by a special role). In addition the start page could be changed to indicate a maintenance mode to the users / as well as a proper Excel error message.

  2. Switch to user view

    Sometimes you have very granular rights for users in place or bug reports which need to be tested from the users perspective. Since you don't know their password you have to copy their groups into a test user first and log-in with the test user. This can be very time consuming. In other tools you can often switch into the users view without leaving your current session (and often also switch back). I would prefer a role/rights object for this.

  3. Loads with insertParallel on sub-trees (boundaries)

    If one uses a load with insertParallel mode, the ETL will unconsolidate duplicates of elements in every Top-Element. This behavior is documented but not always wanted - sometimes you only want to load a certain Top Element (Tree) to be loaded with insertParallel (e.g. Balance Sheet or P&L) but do not want other trees to be touched by the ETL. Therefore I propose to have an option/additional loading mode which works like insertParallel but only within a certain sub-tree so that all other trees remain as-is.

  4. Different user rights per Frontend (e.g. Excel (R) / Web (D))

    It would be awesome if one could grant users different rights per Frontend (Excel vs Web). In Theory it makes sense to treat them the same (you are either allowed to change a value or you are not) BUT in real life Excel is far more complicated and counter-intuitive to use. Especially if you roll-out to 100s of users you can not be sure if someone messes up plan figures just by analyzing them (it can happen so fast and without any notice) - typical answer: "...but I haven't saved - for sure." It would be extremely helpful to grant…

  5. Substitute #VALUE errors from missing rights by 0

    If a user is restricted by #_GROUP_DIMENSION_DATA_* to a specific area he will usually get a #VALUE error for everything else (in Web as well as Excel). Sometimes it would be more beneficial to treat these #VALUE errors as 0s, so that the user experience is the same as if they would have access to all data (hierarchies etc.) but only their data is stored in the cube and everything else is 0.

    You might wonder where this comes in handy - imagine a Cost Center Hierarchy of several hundred cost centers that are arranged productwise while peoples responsibilities are…

  6. An easy to use and configure Workflow

    It is neccesary to have an easy to use end user friendly workflow application. Easy to configure for each new model.

  8. Reverse Algorithm in Top down planning like excel solver

    A reverse algorithm that extends the capability to propagate changes across dimensions and hierarchies to the calculated fields (e.g. If you change a percentage value, the change will be automatically reflected in the quantities from which the percentage has been generated, even if the percentage is a calculated value) just like the solver addin in excel

  9. Provide Excel/Office Add-in only installer binaries as download

    In order to install Jedox Excel add-in for end users, we are currently forced to download the full install package. On some end users, like in India, this can take up to 3 hours to download.

    Further, we often see that customers IT departments install the full packaged incl. OLAP server.

    Please make available an Excel/Office add-in only installed to minimize wrongful installations in the future. Like there is a Sandbox only install available.

  10. Hotfix availability

    If a hot-fix is available, it might be interesting for everyone. It would be nice if all partners are informed and it could be downloaded.
    Or if hot fixes grouped together in cumulative patches, it could be released monthly therefore constantly improving system stability at clients.

  11. debug mode for macros and script code in ETL

    when writing macros or script code in ETL it is often difficult to find out what went wrong and when it went wrong.
    The only way at the moment is to scan the log files for error messages.
    For development it would be helpfull to have a debug mode for those scripts and macros to see step by step if they are working correctly.
    This could be combined with the object manager I proposed within another feature request.

  12. 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.

  13. Jedox Web default fonts/colours

    Improve default formatting options for web spreadsheet and web graphs

    The default options for Web should be best looking options so when users make new reports, these can look smarter by default.

    At the moment, the default colours and fonts are not the most modern and almost every items needs to be manually changed.

    Some options (however suggest you get a web designer to provide options)

    Spreadsheet: Calibri (currently the cells are by default arial - like excel 2003)

    Graphs (at least the dynamic graphs): Calibri (everything ie axes, labels etc).

    Make black or dark grey instead of blue so…

  14. Search users

    A feature request for clients with large list of users (200+)

  15. Activate / Deactivate Filters in Extracts

    This would be great to be able to deactivate filters in Extracts. For instance, Extract cube, I have 3 rows, and I want to remove the 2nd temporarily. At the present time I have to delete it, I would like to be able to deactivate it only.

  16. Functionality to restrict the range of values entered to cubes

    Currently Supervision Server script is the only option to restrict the range of the values entered to cubes.
    Could you consider to add a new feature that enables users to restrict the range of the values entered to cubes without creating their own Supervision Server script.

  17. Investgate the cause of crash from crashdump, log file

    Issue : Currently, can't investigate the cause of crash server from crashdump, log file.
    In order to investigate the cause, we need the following information

    1. Jedox log folder.
    2. Crash dump files.
    3. requests.txt file (Jedox Suite\olap\data).
    4. As much information as possible regarding the actions that were taken on the server before the crash (jobs that were run, reports being opened, etc..).

    Reason : It is very difficult that we know to 4. because any people use Jedox at the same time.

    Solutions : We want to be able to know the cause of crash server from crashdump,log.

  18. 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.

  19. Nested Frames (one frameset within another frameset)

    The current function to use framesets is nice, but still a bit limited as framesets cannot be nested into each other.

    Sometimes you use a frameset for the overall application design - esp. to provide global menu bars and navigation structures.

    On the other hand you would also need a frameset for specific report layouts (e.g. to avoid stretching of charts next to dynaranges).

    But currently you cannot combine them for more complex, professional layout:
    If you use framesets for menubars/headers/footers with a content frame,
    then you don't have the option anymore to structure also you content into frames.

    Therefore…
