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. Drill history should drill down to base level automatically

    Drill History Right now only delivers values when all dimensions are set to base Elements. So users can only see the history of a cell when all base Elements are known. That is very unlikely and is in contradiction to the usage of the flexible cube layout when only relevant Dimensions are given in PALO.DATA using PALO.EL()

    Drill History should rather work in the same way as drill thru and drill down C-Elements automatically.

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  7. 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

  8. 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…

  9. 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.

  10. 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…

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. Macro Events: AfterPaloUpdate to start a macro after Dynarange-Update

    Macros assigned to filter-comboboxes (to set dynarange-variables) are executed BEFORE data is updated.

    A function similar to __open() that is triggered after palo-data has been changed, e.g. in dynaranges, would allow macro-treatment of the new data - in my case to compare current and last year's top-50-customer-dynarange and mark via macro and conditional formatting customers, missing in the actual period (= stopped buying)

  14. About the initial display of the combo box on the report

    We save the file with the hierarchy expanded.
    Then, the hierarchy is displayed in the closed when we open the report again.
    We would like to need the hierarchy is displayed in the expanded when we open the report again in the same case.
    We propose for this feature to be implemented in a future Jedox release.

  15. NEW Active Directory mode, that combine the "Authentication" and "Authorization" mode.

    Currently it is neither possible in "Authentication" mode nor in "Authorization" mode to automatically create/login the users via the AD* and subsequently assign several additional groups to the user.
    Either you have to create them manually and assign the additional groups or you can only become the assigned groups in the AD.

    Due to its needed in more projects I´m really looking forward for a combination of both modes.

  16. Extend DB Script generation (cube+related dimensions, select multiple db objects)

    The option to generate DB scripts is really great!
    But currently you can only create scripts for single db objects (dimensions, cubes) or for the whole db in total.

    It would be great if Jedox would offer some options to save time.

    1.
    when I create a db script for a cube, I would need the option to
    also create scripts for the related dimensions

    2.
    in general it would be great if I could select multiple cubes and/or dimensions from a list to generate the scripts for them

    Thanks

  17. NULL check for FieldTransform functions (ISNULL/default value)

    In FieldTransform functions we need the option to define a default value for inputs and outputs which contain NULL values / invalid values.

    Why?:
    FieldTransform functions work well, if you have valid inputs.

    But sometimes you have invalid inputs or null inputs.
    Then the field transform can obviously not provide a valid output and you will get <<null>> as result.
    Furthermore you get a warning in the log.

    You can solve this with additional Switch functions to check the values, but this gets very clumsy and confusing.

    Example:
    You have a DateDuration function to calculate the duration between
    2 dates.…

  18. page counter in combo box should be freezed

    When you have a combo box with lot elements a page counter appears, but if you scroll down the counter disappears. This counter should be freezed.
