Ability to Auto-Link Fields in Analytic Setup on Dashboard

I'm looking for a way to auto-link identical filed names for multiple reports in a dashboard.

I recently had to link 12 reports, each with 8 filters. Linking close to a hundred fields is time consuming and prone to errors.

Also, if I was to replace the master report, all links are broken and need to be re-linked.

In other BI tools, this is usually a default behavior (identical fields are linked automatically).

HIi

As a first step, i would enable auto linking option when the same field from the same view is used in multiple reports.

Thanks,

Hi Mike,

Another use case for this feature involve deployment on multiple servers (regions, in our case), where there maybe a case of updating reports by replacing them. If on elf them is a master report, it breaks all the dashboard links and they need to be re-liked in multiple servers manually.

Thanks,
