  1. Pass MDX range to CCHART

    Would like to be able to pass a range/set (ie set of members) to the slicers of a CCHART.

    My situation is wanting to restrict a chart up to a particular date so trying to pass {NULL : [Date].[Date].&[YYYYMMDD]}.

  2. Library upload should save in the currently selected folder (if any)

    Upload currently goes to the root/folder by default, but it would make sense that the upload goes to the currently selected library folder

  3. editable table on import event

    Just like the on-save event for editable tables (attached). When records are imported into an editable table it would be great to be able to fire a process just before/after the import has happened.

    An example, after importing records the after could process the partition where the imports are seen by users in a cube.

  4. native transaction drill through

    Provide user functionality in the native transaction drill through which makes it easier for analysis and minimises the need to download transactions

    1) save the filters and selections on how you want to see the transaction page ie which columns to hide and which to summarise as a favourite and open as a default to these (might be a Calumo voice item) - we are trying to move people away from excel

    2) Button at the top to say expand or collapse all when using the function to drag column headers in and summarise?

    13 When choosing the function to…

  5. Mutliple selection in time dimension and still enable native transaction drill through to work

    We are unable to drill to transactions if we select multiple different months in the filter for TIME. We could have multiple selection for chart field dimensions for drill-through, but not for TIME. When we drill blank results are returned and we need to move the month to the columns and drill on each month separately. We can drill on other TIME dimensions that have been created eg Q1, 2020 etc but not if I select Jan 2020 and Feb 2020

  6. 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…

  7. 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.

  8. 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

    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

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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,…

  13. 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.

  14. 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…

  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. 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,…

  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. 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.

  19. 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.
