  1. 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…

  4. 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.

  5. Send to Excel as Values and PDF to Report API

    Commonly CALUMO report consumers will not have access to the CALUMO MS-office client which makes the Send to Excel button's default (with formula) action problematic.

    It would be useful to this class of user for report developers to be able to create buttons inside reports which clicked can trigger the web report's "Send to Excel as Values" and "send to PDF" functions.

    I presume that the easiest way to do this would be to expose the functions in the Report API. Alternatively, an interface on the Report asset screen where toolbar features can be toggled based on User group would…

  6. Setting themes

    Being able to set up themes for charts would be very handy. In Office I have colour palettes that are set up in line with company brand palette. Rather than have to do charting in Excel in order to use these colours, it would be good to be able to set a theme in Calumo for the organisation and to use this in Calumo itself, and for it to be available to all users.

  7. 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…

  9. Self Guided Online Wizard to create Dashboards

    Rather than using excel charts and publishing Dashboards, online tools for user to create Dashboards using multiple Datasources. If possible, have some standard templates like plotting different datasets on country Maps for territory analyses etc in graphic form.

  10. Excel based conditional formatting in Calumo reports

    Currently conditional formatting doesn't appear properly when an Excel file is published as a report. This is quite limiting and would be very handy to have the conditional formatting flow through to reports.

  12. 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.

  15. Add an "Is Mobile" option to CINFO

    In mobile reporting we'll often want to cut-down the reported data based on the smaller view port profile. Having an option in CINFO which identifies if a report is being viewed on a mobile device could be used with CREPORTGROUP to manage hiding / rearranging report content.

  16. 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.

  17. Freeze Panes & Multi-line Comments

    When freeze panes are used in the web, and multi line comments are entered. Only the freeze pane with the comments will become multi line, the opposing pane keeps a single row.

    Would it be possible to have both freeze pane sides to have the same row height? or alternatively if multi line is done on a freeze pane in the web and its longer than one line make it a ellipse '...' so the multi line effect doesn't affect readability and formatting.

  18. CMEMBER with Multi Select optionally shows a list of selected members

    When the CMEMBER MultiSelectMode is set to 'SetList', the test displayed is a list of the selected member names.

    The MDX to use is:

    "with set [selected] as {#listofmemberids#} member [measures].[selectlist] as generate([selected],[selected].currentmember.name,', ') select [measures].[selectlist] on 0 from #cubename# "

  19. Add attachments to comments

    When I add comments to a row it would helpful to be able to add an attachment, like a document or image. An example could be a invoice or some supporting document to demonstrate the validity of the comment.
