Default Date on prompts for report ran from Mobile
« on: 20 Jul 2015 03:12:39 pm »
We have a set of reports that were developed for Cognos Connection that prompt for a start date and end date where we default the start date to Oct 1st of prior year and end date to yesterday.  To accomplish this we used javascript.  The users want to be able to run the reports from the Cognos Mobile app also now.  The Cognos mobile app doesn't support javascript so the start and end date don't default today's date instead.

So we tried replacing the javascript with the prompt macro, but the prompt marco doesn't allow a default for date and we would have to handle as a text field instead.  Problem here is that they want to be able to either type the field in or have the calendar pop up option.

Anyone run into this problem also, if so how did you solve it.
