Is it possible to change the view that is associated with a given report?

Is it possible to change the view that is associated with a given report? Then edit the report(s) that are attached to the modified view making the needed changes to them reflecting the changes that were done on the view? Right now, it appears every time you make a change to a view you need to go back and completely recreate the report that was attached to that view. If one does not change the current view and creates a new view, they still must completely recreate the report(s) for that view.

Hello Kevin,

I have discussed with the product team, and I have received the following response from them:

"I do not think the client is doing this correctly. In Yellowfin, you can make changes to a view and republish that view (whether you use edit or clone), and the reports should be unaffected (i.e., there is no need to recreate them). If the change to the view adds a column or filter, you can edit the report, add the additional columns or filters, or make any other changes to the report you need, and republish the report. In the video, the client makes a copy of the report, which creates a completely new copy of the report (like 'Save As' when saving a document). I am not sure why this step is necessary."

Please review this and let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Regards,
Sharwari Inkane
