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. workbook export macro function should also support pdf as file type (currently xlsx, wss)

    I am using macros to export files.
    Currently I can only choose between xlsx and wss.
    For a project I do at the moment I would need Pdf to be a possibility as well.

    why Pdf in this case?
    - normal users can't handle wss
    - we don't want the user to use an exported xlsx Jedox report as source for other Excel reports to apply shadow reporting

  2. Hide row automatically when Dynarange/Subset returns 0 rows

    There should be an option in the Dynarange editor to hide the involved rows if the (vertical) dynarange returns no result.

    This is especially valid for nested Dynaranges.

    Right now it is always additional effort to simulate this via HIDEROW functions. (and is probably also consuming unnecessary resources on bigger resultsets)

  3. By default show summary of cells in the bottom right corner

    Like in Excel it would be nice to get an automatic summary of cells shown in the bottom right Corner (see attached file).

    For example:
    Value in cell A1: 20
    Value in cell A2: 30
    Value in cell A3: 40

    When range A1:A3 is selected, the sum of those three cells should be shown in the bottom right Corner. This should be doable in reportmanager as well as in the file Manager.

  4. A better way to drag and drop dimensions, than the current "Paste View" function.

    Jedox should take a page from Excel Powerpivot, Tableau or TM1 and redesign the Paste View function. Often users want to just drag and drop dimensions on the view itself, and not have to click on "Edit View" go to another screen. The current Paste View function involves far too many key clicks to perform analysis.

    For example - to choose a new element in a view
    1. Edit View
    2. Click the dimension
    3. Click Choose element
    4. Select element (very poor selection options in Jedox, for example I can't select all elements that contain say 'HEMAS' at once) …

  5. Print function in Web

    In addition to the export functions (PDF, HTML, XLSX) there should be a function for printing.

    Right now, users who want to print a report have to export first and print then. Better doing this in one step.

  6. Copy function from a Field Transporm component to another one

    In the integrator > field transform, i would like to use the same function for several different transforms. More specifically, i'm using a map and I'd like to use the same map in other transforms without retyping it (or updating it individually).

  7. Editing settings of a scheduled task

    Being able to edit certain parameters of a scheduled job once it has been created could be quite useful. If, for example, a scheduled task was created to run using the account 'johndoe' and the password for this account has changed, the user is forced to delete and reschedule the job at the moment. Being able to just edit the existing job would be quite helpful.

  8. Add button to maximize dialog to all modal dialogs

    There are several dialogs (preview dialogs, subset editor and so on) that have no maximize-button.

    The feature request is to add a "maximize" - button to every modal dialog.

  9. Set ETL variable value based on other variables (via formula)

    Sometimes a variable in ETL is just a simple math calculation based on another variable.
    Example: year_end = year_start + 10

    Another case would be a simple "if then else" condition based on another variable.

    ==>
    It would be great to just define such formulas directly in the variables section of the ETL project.

    Right now you would need a separate groovy job for this which is too much overhead for this simple task
    and creates unnecessary complexity within the flowchart / ETL process.

  10. Simple function to remove an element from consolidation (PALO.EREMOVE or something similar))

    Currently the only option to remove an element from consolidation with spreadsheet functions is to use PALO.EUPDATE
    function. This method is in-direct as it requires all the elements remaining in consolidation as an argument which makes the use of function laborious.

    A new function to simply "break" parent-child relation of two elements would make this operation much easier. The function could be something like PALO.EREMOVE(Server/Database,Dimension,Element,Consolidated Element).

  11. Option to set alias as default value

    It should be possible to preselect the alias as the default value to avoid confusing users with IDs defined as base elements.
    The setting should be made user-specific.

  12. Move buttons, charts, comboboxes etc. with arrow keys

    The efficiency of final report layouting could be improved:

    Positioning of buttons, charts, comboboxes via mouse is not exact enough.

    Positioning of buttons, charts, comboboxes via the control properties dialog is to inefficient if you have to align multiple controls.

    Therefore it would be great to have the possibility to move those objects via arrow keys on the keyboard in a fine granular way.

  13. Find & filter in ETL data preview windows

    When creating ETL project, a lot of debugging is needed. At this moment to check if data is correct, I'm exporting data to CSV right from DataPreview vindow. The problem - it exports only data visible on screen.
    Sure - with BIG data, it is ok.

    My solution:
    Add search and filter functionality to DataPreview window. Any column would be searchable and filtrable. Something like Data Filter in Excel.

    It would exclude any exporting for debugging purposes.

  14. Macro Events: OnCellChange

    It would be great to be able to react on data input into cells of a Jedox Web Spreadsheet via macro similar to Excel (Worksheet_Change event).

  15. Switch to include PALO.EL with Paste Data Function

    To make use of the new flexible cube layout functionality PALO.EL subfunctions inside the PALO.DATA are needed. Inserting the PALO.DATA with the "Paste Data Function" dialogue thus requires to manually edit this pasted function for each dimension of the cube. It would be nice to have a checkbox or similar in the "Paste Data Function" dialogue to call for automatically inserted PALO.EL subfunctions (either with the default element as chosen by "guess arguments" or the default read element if specified, not sure which would be better).

  16. Setting worksheet protection for snapshots

    Since it's not possible to set worksheet protection for xlsx snapshots exported from Jedox Web, users are able to edit any of the cells of the snapshots even if cell lock was defined in the original spreadsheet.

    Could you please consider to add a functionality to set worksheet protection for the snapshot exported from Jedox Web.

  17. 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…

  18. Don't show _internal_suite in the list of users

    The _internal_suite user gets everyone confused. Every client that is a bit less technical worries about it ("Does it take a license", "What if we delete it", "What if the password is changed" and so on and on). There is absolutely no need that I can see to have _internal_suite shown in the list of users. If it's something that Jedox needs internally that's fine, but please don't expose it to users.

  19. Public API for file upload

    A partner is asking for an API function to be able to invoke a browse dialog to access files/folders in the Report Designer.
    Basically what they want is like the Publish feature in the Excel add-in. Then they would call this function in their macro code from a report to open this dialog and allow the user to upload a file.

  20. date picker as interval

    In many reports I need to consider date intervals. for example beginning is
    2012-11 and end is 2015-03
    Calendar is
    - All Years
    - Year
    - Quar.
    - Month
    So a macro calculates all needed Elements:
    - 2011-11, 2011-12, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015-Q1
    This is quite circuitous. having an input form that calculates these interval for date dimensions (depends on the definition)
    - Years
    - Quart.
    - Weeks or Months
    - Days
    would make work with jedox much easiert!
