    Rayn,

    Date dimensions will be be represented with a "(Calendar)" suffix, for example: [Results.START_DT (Calendar)]. Please try it and let me know if that worked.

     

    Mike,

    Thanks for the feedback, we will look into it.

    Avi,

    Adding calendar solved the issue of the date filter not passing.

    The only remaining issue I have with this plug-in is that it doesn't seem to work with a chart widget when it should. I have tried navigation types 1/3 and neither seem to be working.

    New version works nicely, seems to solve the intermittent issue I had!

    Wondering though if there is a way to not have all the column highlighted as a link in a pivot click through. Customers think that what they are clicking through on is what they will see. Any chance I could specify the column number I'd like to see highlighted? Especially in very wide pivots having 12 columns all highlighted is a bit confusing to the end user.

    Thanks!

    It would be really nice if on a pivot you could specify a different report for each column, so we could click through to a revenue report when they click on revenue column, a ordersreport when they click on orders, etc.

    I have been noticing that the overwrite in a dashboard script occasionally gets ignored after you do something wrong, like some bad syntax or including a filter that does not exist. It will then revert back to the default setting and it is hard to make it pickup the script overwrite again. IISReset doesn't do it, the only fool proof way I have found is to reboot the server, but that is a bit overkill I would assume. Any ideas?

    ISSUE: The latest version introduced an issue with IncludeFilterDims. If the the Filter is a Hierarchy it will not longer respect the includedFilterDims. If you split the filters into two separate filters however it works fine. This used to work in the older version and got introduced in one of the last two.

    Has anyone experienced a problem w/ this NOT working in Internet Explorer (v 11.0.9600) but DOES work in Chrome?  If so, how did you fix it?  Have tried troubleshooting w/ Sisense but so far no luck.  Quite possible that it's a corporate-controlled setting in IE but we don't know where to start.  Thanks for any help!

    On the off chance anyone else ran in to this -- Sisense found & fixed this problem.  Some weird IE 11 thing they had to account for.  So re-download the widget.  Works great now!

    I am still getting odd behavior where it will open many new tabs when I click o a cell in a pivot table. It basicvally opens as many tab as you change filters. I.e. you make 5 changes to 5 filters it will open 5 tabs.

    The only way around it is if you refresh after setting the filters or unselect the update every time box.

    See Ticket 24482 for a video illustrating the behavior

    If you're not using 6.2 yet DO NOT update to the latest version of this plugin, as it will hide all dashboards for user that he or she is not owner of.

    @Mike - Thanks for bringing this to our attention. Our developers are working on fixing this issue.

    @Michal - There was a problem with one of the settings in the config file that caused this. The "drilledDashboardPrefix" property was set  to an empty space thus causing all dashboards to show up only for their owners. I've modified the file to include this setting with the default value of  "_drill". So you could either change the settings back to the default or download the newer version. Thanks!

    If I no longer want to have a particular widget that jumps to another dashboard, how do I remove the jump to icon. It stays there, even after the referenced dashboard name is changed or deleted.

    @Wes - when you intially select jump to dashboard from the list, a green tick will appear next to it. When you click it again, it will dissapear and jump to will not be active anymore.

    My cubes are getting a big large and I want to split it into a few smaller ones. I do however want to maintain the ability to jump to dashboard between them. Support told me about a trick to remove some code from the plugin but that display all the dashboards across all my cube which is a bit overwhelming especially with cubes belonging to different customers.

    I tried the syntax to hardcode the dashboardid but that doesn't seem to work

    Any suggestions?

    See Ticket 25565 for more details

    Is there any way to make the popup with the list of drill through a little wider and taller. Its awfully small when you have a lot of possible click throughs. probably some css somewhere but not sure where.

    I am having trouble getting the jump to dashboard to be usable for other users. 

    For me (the Dashboard Owner) I can just left-click and it will jump to the other dashboard just fine with active filter etc.

    But after I have published both the main dash and every _drill_... dash, the end users do not see any way to jump to the dashboard. If they left click, nothing.  If they right click (as in the directions) they also see nothing. I am pretty certain the plugin is installed correctly (as it works for me) but its seems like a permission thing.

    I am not seeing the jump to dashboard option when editing a widget.  Is there anything else I need to check after installing and restarting the iis piece?

    Hi Todd, 

    Can you open a support ticket and add a screenshot of the folder location where you put the plugin?

    thanks!

    Hi Eyal,

    In order to see the jumping option it is essential that you will have a dashboard with a prefix named _drill_ and that the new dashboard you are creating is associated to the same ElastiCube that the _drill_ dashboard is related to. If this is not the case, please do open a support ticket so we can better understand the scenario.

    General note to add, the issue Dana reported on is resolved in Sisense version 6.2.1

    Hi,

    I was sent here by Nir as a solution to my request, namely, to be able to have a superdashboard which shows KPI's for other dashboards so that you can open this dashboard and see where your attention is needed. If something is going wrong, you can click the widget to go to a more detailed dashboard to show you what's happening exactly. Unfortunately, this doesn't really seem to be a solution to this request.

    The thing is that our superdashboard contains widgets running on different Elasticubes (using the Copy Widget functionality introduced in Sisense 6.2). It seems that this plugin only allows for adding jumps to dashboards running on the same Elasticube as the widget you're clicking on. I've tried it using the UI to create links and using the Edit Script functionality for a widget. The UI only lists the dashboards running on the same cube and using the Edit Script thingy doesn't do anything at all.

    Is there a way around this as this plugin is now only partly usable for us.

    Thanks

    Tim

    Hi,

    Running Sisense 6.2.0.336 and the attached jumpToDashboard_may_22_2016.rar file. I've set the prefix to "" so I can link to all dashboards. This works for the user that's the owner of the dashboards, but for other users it hides all the dashboards! When I set the prefix to the default "_drill_", the dashboards are visible again, but the linking functionality doesn't work (although the indicator is shown in the widget header).

    How to fix this?

    Thanks

    Tim

    @Tim - hideDrilledDashboards - this the parameter which hides all dashboards for non-owners when you specify an empty prefix(you can find config.js file in plugin folder/js folder and edit it there globally). By default it is set to true, set it to false and all of them should be visible for non-owners as well.

    Regards,

    Michał

    @Michal, thanks, changing that setting allows all users to see the dashboards again. But, the linking functionality only works for the admin of the superdashboard. 

    Situation:

    - drilledDashboardPrefix: ""
    - hideDrilledDashboards: false
    - drilledDashboardDisplayType: 1

    The rest of the settings are the default ones.

    Then when the admin user clicks on an indicator widget, it opens a new tab with the url: http://[our_base_url]/app/main#/dashboards/566abe08830fae982f000009?volatile=false&folder=55508e487a750dd43800007f
    But when a non-admin user clicks the same indicator widget, there're a 404 in the browser console, attached to this url: http://[our_base_url]/api/v1/dashboards/566abe08830fae982f000009

    So, what's happening?

    Thanks,

    Tim
