  1. Calumo functionality Reports - Filtering on columns

    One of the most requested enhancements for the Project Listing Report was to be actually able to filter at the top of each of the columns – like excel and the native transaction drilldown.

    We are not keen to use bespoke functionality which makes it more difficult for us to support.

    Our review of existing Calumo functionality is this is not possible even with our recent cube redesign. If we want to replicate the Excel functionality that is not possible. Calumo does not have the formulas to find unique values and turn it into dropdown. In the reports, that have…

  2. Easily drag+drop the "Member UID" (Member Key) into the Web-view same as any other attribute.

    Avoid having to manipulate the MDX and have the UID as an attribute, easily accesible to the end user.

    We need that key for CHyperlinks. Yes, it's visibile when direct export to Excel, but not when in reflex or MDX format.

  3. Search the Library

    When an item gets put into the library it can become lost or very hard to find.

    Need the ability to search the library and to show breadcrumbs to show the location of the searched item.

  4. Checking out and in of reports

    Have a "Feature Toggle" to allow reports to be checked in and out.

    When downloading you could have a box asking if you want to check the report out. Then when uploading it would automatically check the document in for you.

    If you are downloading or uploading a report that has been checked out by another user it could warn you that the report is checked out by another user. It wouldn't stop you downloading or uploading, just a warning. If you are uploading and someone else uploaded a report when you had it checked out it could warn you…

  5. We would like to use tuplesets to select different hierarchies or in our case categories

    We would like to use tuplesets to select different hierarchies or in our case categories

    The inability to do this is providing outputs where the heading is on two different rows which is not ideal particularly when exporting to excel and using as a base for other reports

    See the attached file for an example

  6. web reporting category

    I can't see a category on this improving Calumo page to select web reports. I can see excel, apps etc but not web or online reports

  7. Option for web reporting to include document links in commentary and open documents (OneDrive/Sharepoint) and edit the hyperlink name

    We would like to paste a document link into the commentary cell ie onedrive or sharepoint.

    Currently When the link opens it will have an error message as it is trying to open in Calumo and not the onedrive location. We need to remove the following words from the front of the link in the browser window https://www.calumo.unsw.edu.au/” and it will open.

    The best option is to right click and ask to open in a new tab so the existing Calumo report stays available as it currently opens in the same tab and you can't get back to Calumo.

  8. Favourite a set of selections on a report and override the cache

    We have a suite of reports in an app which utilises the cached department/entity selection to drive all the reports. One of the reports provides the ability to show a list of departments rather than just one department and the selection is user defined. We would like to be able to favourite the set of selections for the report so when it refreshes it defaults to this favourite list rather than the cache. Our workaround is to open the page into a different window and save the link as a favourite in our web browser or copy it to a…

  9. Comment Size when hovering.

    This one is not urgent but is there any way that you can pump up the size of the comments box & font when hovering over the comments?

    Will make it easier to review.

  10. Publish multiple tabs

    Where we have a couple of variants of a report, I try to keep them in the same workbook and have each variant as a different tab in the workbook. That way, when I make an amendment to one of the reports, I can see the other worksheet(s) in the same workbook and acts as a prompt to update the others if it is a change that should be made to all variants.

    It would be great to have the option to publish multiple tabs in a workbook. Place a 'flag' or trigger on each page that should be uploaded,…

  11. Enable Calumo to open with Apps listed

    When providing a link to Calumo for users have the option of including parameters to open Calumo in the desired state. For instance, a user may have access to 3 apps... we want them to open Calumo with the App Drawer open and the 3 apps available for selection...

    So potentially something like this...
    https://site/calumo/?showappsdrawer=true

    https://site/calumo/?showappsdrawer=true&headerless=true&tabless=true

    With further options to hide the top bar or open in full window or whatever

  12. Publications to allow multisheet reports or selection of multiple reports

    Our business area have raised a idea to allow Publications to send mulitsheet workbooks to non-calumo users. Effectively create a reporting pack to send to staff each month.

    Non-calumo users won't have Calumo addon on their computers.
    We don't want to send reports as an image or PDF but rather send using 'Excel as values' (i.e. no Calumo Formula).

    Our preference is one report with several tabs (multiple sheets) each refreshed/updated and output as values only.

    The driver behind this idea is to limit sending multiple emails and just have one containing several reports.

    If multisheet reports are not possible,…

  13. Column drilling in charts

    Charts in Calumo views can be drillable, however, it is only possible to drill on rows. Drilling on columns is not possible. When creating a chart it would be good to have the option of choosing whether a chart is drillable on rows or columns. Some of the stacked bar charts that I produce have fiscal periods in rows, and nothing worthy of drilling on. However, the columns (stacked business areas) could be drilled into to see pillar/department/business unit information.

  14. Make colours in drillable charts consistent across charts in the same group

    The attached file has two drillable charts which have the same customers in each chart. One chart is based on dollars and the other on storage. The largest customer by dollars may not be the largest customer in storage so the customer may be green in one chart and blue in the other chart. It would be easier for a user to follow if the colour in each chart for each member was the same.

  15. CCHARTSELECTIONS - horizontal or vertical

    The CCHARTSELECTIONS formula requires a horizontal range of cells in which to reside. With dashboards that we are creating, we are using 'buttons' (created by way of a stacked bar chart) for department, employment basis, or other 'filters' to slice data - and are placing these down the left-hand side of the dashboard.

    It would be great to be able to host the CCHARTSELECTIONS option in a vertical range of cells rather than needing a horizontal range. This would mean that down the left-hand side of dashboards we can have the drill/filters AND the chart selections controls, rather than having…

  16. Text boxes on reports - improve look and feel functionality

    We are providing our users with web based reports with commentary.

    The commentary functionality allows for more commentary than fits in the viewable box which detracts from the usability and look and feel.

    1) The box which comes up to enter text is larger than the text that will actually display. It would be good at a minimum if they matched so you could be sure that the text you typed before the scroll bar appears was going to be visible in the box on the report

    2) When the text typed in the box is greater than the size…

    The look and feel of the rich text controls are under review and should address points one and two.

    Point three is not something we’re likely to be able to implement as CGETNOTE commentary is not tied to a cell, but a datapoint, so the underlying cell can be of arbitrary size. Changes made to the controls should alleviate some of the related issues, however.

  17. Allow App Designer to specify that certain reports should open in separate new tabs

    Some wider reports should always open in a new tab, so allow this to be a flag in the App designer. Particularly useful for side-by-side analysis of two reports.

  18. CGET to allow for member sets

    CGET currently only accepts single members, such as [Account].[Accounts].&[Income] . It would be an improvement if it could handle sets: { [Account].[Accounts].&[Income] , [Account].[Accounts].&[Interest], [Account].[Accounts].&[Gifts] } Sometimes Custom sets aren't possible.

  20. Reflex to optionally exclude headers

    Add a new parameter to the reflex formulas to exclude the header lines. Most of the time the default headers are inadequate and need manual fixing which is painful. Alternatively a report-wide setting could be added to CREPORTPROPERTIES to exclude headers from every reflex on the page.
