  1. Possibility to recognize cells with imposed "Hold" in web reports.

    Right now, the only option to see which cells are within a "Hold" is via the Hold Manager. However, the hold manager doesnt give a list of all held cells in a given report. You have to click on every single cell and check if it on hold or not, which renders the hold manager useless for bigger repports.

    I would like to have the possibilty to recognize cells with imposed hold and conditionally format them, so the user can easily see which cells they have to pay attention to.

    We are currently working on several features which will allow report formats and styles to be driven by database content.
    Formatting “held” cells will be of the database contents (or states) that we consider for driving such database-based formatting.

  2. Instantly (one click) use/set variables (shown in monitor) used by previously ran ETL-task

    ETL jobs often get data from user input or automatically retrieve variable values. This is used to temporary 'overwrite' variable defaults. When debugging an ETL process with many variables you need to manually change all used variables in order to reproduce a previously ran ETL job. It would be nice to have a single button to set all used variables from a specific ETL job to the actual used values (as shown in the integrator logs).

  3. Always show additional optional settings in integrator

    In Jedox integrator the additional optional settings are not expanded.

    Therefore you always have to expand this block first to check if there is anything configured there.

    >> All blocks should always be expanded at any time.
    >> Alternatively all blocks should be expanded if they contain any settings other than default.

  4. 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

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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)

  11. 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).

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. Positioning of charts depending on cell position & size (Dynarange)

    Current situation when combining charts with dynaranges:

    Design Mode:
    - you create a chart next to a dynarange and give it a certain size

    Result in User Mode:
    - the chart will be stretched to a bigger size according to the expansion of the dynarange

    This can sometimes be avoided by using frames or by other workarounds, but those work arounds are not really applicable for professional real life solutions,
    For example if you use frames already for other purposes, esp. for menu bar structures then you don't have this option (as frames cannot be nested into each other).

    So…

  15. 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.

  16. Sorted as default

    In several areas, elements are sorted by creation data as opposed to name and this makes selection difficult. For instance:
    - in modeler and subset editor, dropdown to select a database
    - in modeler, list of cubes
    - in subset editor, select Alias
    - in formulas PALO.DATABASE_LIST_CUBES and PALO.DATABASE_LIST_DIMENSIONS

    The formulas are the most problematic because the result is an array that cannot be sorted. When I want to compare dimensions and cubes from 2 different databases and the dimensions and cubes were not created in the exact same order, it doesn't line up ...

  17. 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.

  18. dynarange - vizualization of drilldown possibility

    DynaRanges already allow to give basic formatting and define which levels are displayed and which can be drilled down to. At bigger Jedox rollouts we faced the difficulty to point out to users that they can drill down certain parts of the report and had to work with conditional formatting. It would be great, if this would be supported natively by Jedox. This could be achieved by either of:

    1. '+' - icon in front of element (selectable in dynarange options)
    2. mouseover effect (chaning mouse icon or miniture tooltip)
    3. formatting of drillable levels according to formatting in dynarange…

  19. Access rights for groups in report manager

    Maintaining the access rights for groups in the report manager is a real "pain" if you provide more than only 1 application or report to be selected by the users.

    If a new group is created in the system manager you will have to go through all report groups / reports available in the report manager to re-set the settings for security.

    Would be at least good to have the option to select all / none rather than clicking one by one through a big list of groups.
