Add Ability to Set My Favorites as Entry Page

There is a profile option to set your entry page to the Browse Page. It would be great if you could further specify to go to "My Favorites".

Hi Jason,

Thanks for reaching out. I do like this idea! In doing support tasks I don't use the My Favorites feature much, but upon thinking about it, when using the Yellowfin instance dedicated to internal communications, I've realized that My Favorites is one of, if not my most, visited pages since all the most pertinent reports and dashboards I have saved right there, so I definitely see and understand its potential usefulness. As such, I've gone ahead and logged an enhancement request for this in our internal tracking system. Any potential updates regarding this matter will be posted here.

Regards,

Mike

Mike,

Has there been any traction with this? I had this same question and did a search in the community and found this. I also find this VERY useful!


Thanks,

Hi Zack,

This has not been selected for enhancement as of yet. I should note that it wasn't denied, however... it's currently in our backlog, and as such, is intended to be added at some point. I've gone ahead and noted your interest in this in the internal task.

Hello,

Since Mike is no longer with YF, is there a way to get a status of this idea? I am currently having to build dashboard landing pages, because the browse page is too overwhelming for some users... and dashboard on entry is too limited and accident prone (as in removing dashboards from "home").


Thanks

Zack

Hi Zack,

I hope all is well,

I have since assigned this ticket to myself for tracking purposes. Going forward there has been no movement with this idea raised, however I can chase this up to see if we can get movement if that helps? Let me know. Happy to assist where I can.

Hi Zack,

I hope all is well,

I have chased this up with the development team although no updates as of yet. Going forward with this can I ask the impact of this and how much such feature would be needed/beneficial to your users. I only ask as this may be something we can chase/check up with your csm.

I look forward to your update.

Hey Mark,

I will reference my previous comments...

"I am currently having to build dashboard landing pages, because the browse page is too overwhelming for some users."

It seems there should be more options for when a user logs in to Yellowfin than just Dashboards or Browse. Even for myself, when I log in I usually head to my favorites. We have developed almost a hundred different reports. To isolate the ones each user uses I have encouraged them to use "My Favorites." So, when most users log in, they immediately have to move the mouse and click -- wasted steps from an process analysis standpoint. Also, this would alleviate the need for everyone to have "Landing Dashboards," which as I said previously, is prone to user error.


Thanks,

Zack

Hi Zack,

Thank you for getting back to me and providing me with a detailed update of where you see this and how much of an importance said feature is to you and your users. With this and going forward I am going to pull in your CSM so that we can make them aware of this feature. Hopefully we can get some better answers to you with informing you of where we stand going forward.

I hope this is ok.

Regards,

Mark

I totally agree with Zack. This is a must in the coming release.
