Welcome Page Extension Customization
« on: 13 Jul 2018 06:05:34 am »
We have created an extension for home page and it is working fine. But now we need to add links to folders on that page which when clicked should open Team Content slide out menu and display that folder contents. There are too many links to be added as folder button extensions and hence have to be added on the home page. Is there a way to achieve this functionality?

Regards,
Kiran

Do you mean you want to add links to different folders as tiles? or just as another addition above/under the Team Content?

I have done the latter (see attachment) where I have added another folder and a link to a website on the left pane.
Let me know if you would like me to share with you how to do that.

We need to add them as hyperlinks or tiles. We did some research and wrote our custom script to simulate FolderOpener method of cognos. It is not very efficient but solves our purpose but if we can somehow use FolderOpener method in our custom javascript then it would make things much easier for us.

We also added link to Reports and Dashboards using the link from Share menu but are forced to open in a new window as we could not call built in cognos methods to open a report or dashboard object within the same window while persisting already open windows.

Thanks for your readiness to share your ideas.

I have also created a extension to change the Cognos log in page  using one of the IBM samples. I did customized the log in page as per the company requirement but now I am not able to use the Enter Key to submit user id and password I have to click to Log in Button to submit the user id and password. Is there any solutions to it. Thanks
