Active report in Dasboards?
« on: 10 Nov 2016 04:19:48 am »
This might have already been asked, but I can't find it anywhere. Is it possible to include active reports in dashboards in Cognos Analytics?

Hi Chris,

No - dashboards in Cognos Analytics are built from data assets, not from previously authored content. What are you trying to achieve? Is it simply to avoid querying the database when the dashboard is opened? If so, you can base your dashboard on a Data Set (data brought in to the columnar store from your database/package).

Cheers!

MF.
Meep!

Hi MF,

At the moment, it's just initial questions. We looked into Active Reports briefly and liked the formats and visualisations at the time. I think some of the functionality has been incorporated into the standard reports now, for example having tabs for separate pages. Some of the options for sliding date selection looked quite cool in AR, but that might have been included now as well.

When we go to Analytics I'll post some more specific questions...I'm just exploring the art of the possible at the moment.

Cheers,
Chris
