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. Correct hierarchical sorting when using several groups

    when using several groups allocated to a user that have different access rights on elements of a hierarchy, the dimensions elements will not be rendered properly (e.g. show base elements as consolidated ones)

    the underlying problem is that the hierarchical sorting in Subset does not work in combination with user rights.

    This is quite confusing for the users. This would be really awesome if this problem could be corrected

  2. Independent number format from language

    Today, default number format / formula format is linked to the selected language. For example, german number format (1.000,00) and formula format (=SUMME(a;b;c)) is selected for german language, in english this is switched to (1,000.00) and (=SUM(a,b,c)).
    Idea: Allow to chose number / formula format seperately from the language settings. This would make copy/paste of formulas from Knowledge base or between systems running different default languages easier. Also, Excel export from english number formats messes up and auto-detects dates when excel language is set into german.

  3. 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.

  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. Built-In Scalar Dimension

    Scalar1 for instance would be a dimension with predefined values from 0-100. You could assign meaningful names to each value using an alias. The benefit would be that rules requiring a previous or next value would not require a "lookup" for what the previous or next value is. This is important in nested rules. For instance in occupational modelling where next year, next age is a function of previous year, previous age.

    NEXT_YEAR, NEXT_AGE = PALO.DATA("XXXDatabase","CCCube",PALO.EPREV("XXXDatabase","XXDimension",!'XXDimension'),PALO.EPREV("XXDatabase","YYDimension",!'YYDimension'),…) * …

    This could be replaced with NEXT_YEAR, NEXT_AGE = PALO.DATA("XXXDatabase","CCCube",PREVIOUS("XXDimension"),PREVIOUS("YYDimension"),,…) *

  6. Input of % values - same behaviour as in Excel

    when you input a number in a %-formatted cell you have to input "0.5" for 50% when Excel is there more clever since you input 50 and it converts it to 0.5 automatically

    the same behaviour would be REALLY helpful in web

  7. 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.

  8. Deactivate auto-check in credentials for Jedox Mobile

    The option to deactivate auto-check when you enter your username and password should be always visible and it should be possible to permanently save the decision to use auto-check, or not.

    At the moment users have to long press in a specific spot in a white area until a "secret" option appears to deactivate the automatic checking of credentials. The problem is that the app tries to log on with every single character of the password, so that entering a 8 digit password will generate 7 invalid attempts to log on! Users will not remember, that there is a hidden…

  9. Show database name in "delete database" dialogue

    As the description says. At the moment, "do you want to delete this database" is asked. Just add the database name so the user knows that they haven't misclicked.
    Asking this for a friend... :)

  10. Add Function for character encoding in Field Transform

    It would be great if you could add a Function so that a text may be rendered using a different character encoding (like UTF-8, ISO code pages).

    As of this writing, I didn't find any other method to transcript coding than to use a Switch or Groovy-Function and implement the change manually.

  12. 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.

  13. 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…

  14. User password request

    it has to be possible for a user who has forgotten his/her password to request a new one via email. This is state of the art and should definitely bepossible in jedox web.

  15. Parse arrays for variables

    At the moment (2018.4), it is only able to write an array to a variable via two ways: a listbox or a macro. This makes it difficult to have zero suppression in a data filter for calculated values (current year plus previous year for example).

    Suggestion: improve parsing of arrays for variables (and subset inputs), so that writing an array into a cell can be parsed by the subset.

    For example, writing "{2018,2017}" could be interpreted as an array of the two values 2018 and 2017.

    This already works with named ranges, as far as I've been told, so it…

  16. Independent rights on database level

    Abstract:

    User rights on OLAP objects in a database should not be influenced by user groups that are disabled for this database.

    Case:

    As you probably know one can limit user rights to certain databases via cube System/#_GROUP_DATABASE_DATA. A user with a restricted group is then only able to access data from this particular database.

    Additionally one can combine this database permission with e.g. dimension restrictions (via #_GROUP_DIMENSION_DATA_*) so that the user can only see specific elements e.g. reports by making use also of #_CONFIGURATION option HideElements set to "Y".

    The problem:

    Let's further assume that you have two databases…

  18. 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…

  19. Option not to display 0 value Label in a pie Grap

    In Excel, there is an Option to select what should be done with empty cells but not in Jedox web.
    It should be great to have this option in graphs Jedox web.
    Please find attached an Excel exemple.
