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. Reuse of Field Transforms (esp. groovy) - central library / repository of components

    Hi,

    sometimes you have field transform methods which are used in the same way in different ETL processes.
    This might be complex groovy scripts or simple concatenations.

    If you need to change even a simple concatenation scheme (like generating a key) across several different processes it is very much effort and very error prone.

    Also for more complex groovy scripts it is not good if you have them redundant.
    Therefore it would be good to create such transformations in a kind of central repository with generic inputs. And then you can select/use/map them in a concrete field transform step within…

  3. MD5 Hash in ETL => compare records, detect changes/deviations, history logic

    It would be great if Jedox Integrator could generate an MD5 Hash based on an entire row. This would be very useful in generic routines where you need to compare records and detect changes (esp. for historization logics)
    For me this would be a new field transform function.

  4. Materialized Rules / Persisted Rules - for Performance Optimization (like materialized views)

    Currently rules are calculated in the moment when the user queries the data.

    It would be great to have the option to shift the timing to the point when the user changes data. So the result of the calculation would be stored/persisted when the user changes a certain parameter.
    -> in this moment the change would only affect tiny slices of the cube,
    related to the parameters of the calculation. (a bit like a SVS routine)

    Generaly this could help to optimize performance in scenarios where reporting performance is critical but data entry performance not that much.

    In relational databases…

  5. conditional

    Performance monitor for each report on runtime to analyze what is consuming the most time. Is it e.g. calculations, conditional formating, cube access and so on. Like the F12 analyzer tool in web browser with an waterfall diagramm.

  6. scale to fit screen size

    It would be super helpful if the reports are shown to the user fit to their respective screen.
    There is rarely one screen size used in a company, and that way one could see the whole report zoomed in or out without having to use scroll bars

  7. 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.

  8. Enable zoom in Excel Add-In dialogs

    Please work on suporting DPI scaling / zoom factor for high resolution displays. Our customers are rolling out a lot of ultrabooks with 1920x1080 or higher resolutions. This causes text and diaglog boxes to be too small for comfort by default. But if the users set it to 150%, Jedox Excel Wizard is missing the "Windows Authentication" option.

  9. Display No Access to non access elements instead of #Value

    When we setup a security at dimension level, some users are set as N to prevent an access. In report spreadsheet, the element is displayed in a single cell (not using dynarange). But when non eligible user open the report, the particular element that should not accessible is displayed as #Value. This raised a question among users and though as this is an error.

  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. Undo in ETL

    There is no way of undoing a change in ETL rather than reloading the whole ETL Project. Once a change has been made one is forced to save!

    Would be helpful if you can leave a changed ETL component without saving it.

  12. Load multiple Excel files from a directory with one connection and extract (like CSV Files).

    oad multiple Excel files from a directory with one connection and extract (like CSV Files).

    Basicly the same structure like creating a file extract using a folder-connection. But also working with Excel files :)

  14. Support more than 2 nested Dynaranges

    In order to easily maintain complex print reports, I would need up to 5 nested Dynaranges in one report. One of the latest requirements could use 3 nested vertical Dynaranges with 2 horizontal ones intersecting only the inner vertical Dynarange (to sort the columns along the values of the inner Dynarange.
    This would save a LOT of time.

  15. Make global subset definitions independent of IDs

    Global subsets are currently stored with IDs referencing elements. THis leads to broken global subsets whenever a dimension is loaded in modus update or transfered to the production environment via the new database script functionality.

  17. Option to set atribute as default alias and to set default format (exemple: name-alias) for each dimension

    When i make an excel request on a database, i always use the same alias and the same format on the selection's Windows fot a given dimension. The idea is to have that directly on every sélections on my hierarchies. attached the default configuration i would like to be able to set.

  18. cell comment in Jedox web worksheet automatically from Attribute

    In our reports we often show codes e.g. for areas or items.
    Often we also need to show descriptions of those codes which takes lots of space.

    I often wished I could just show the description as mouse over of the cell which shows the code. Like the Tooltip of a link or a cell comment.

    example:
    I have a dynarange which creates a list of areas and some KPIs.
    Now if I bring my mouse over an area code and want to the additional info like name of the area manager or name of the company.

  19. Number of rows from an ETL component

    this would be greatly useful to have a method to get the number of rows returned by an ETL component, such as:

    mySource=API.initSource("myExtract");
    mySource.getRowCount();

  20. Implement more shortcuts in web spreadsheet

    Several shortcuts are missed when working in the Jedox web spreadsheets. These include (Excel-inspired):
    Ctrl+b for bold
    Ctrl+arrow navigation
    Shift+click to select area
    Ctrl+shift to select area
    Shift+Space to select entire row
    Shift+Ctrl to select entire column
    Ctrl+Alt+v to Paste Special
    Ctrl+1 for cell formatting
    Ctrl+Shift+1 for accounting cell format
    Ctrl + -/+ to insert/remove row
