Better formatting options when using crosstab Reports

Mark shared this idea 7 months ago

Hi,


When we create a cross tab the default is for the Row Dimensions to be vertically middle aligned in their cell (when Suppressed Duplicates is selected). It would be nice if we could choose to Top (or Bottom) align, as well as other formatting options that are present in standard Report building.

Hi Mark,


Thanks for reaching out with your suggestion. I've logged this as an Idea for an Enhancement Request. Before becoming a request, ideas will be reviewed by our Product Team and chosen for Enhancements based on feasibility, level of positive impact to the user experience, and votes from the community.


This post will be updated with any future information relevant to this process.


Kind regards,

Simon

Hi Mark,


I'm just messaging to let you know that the Developers are assessing this Enhancement and would like further information on what other specific formatting options you would like included in this task. If you could provide a little more information on this, I can provide Developers with some examples and further guidance, to hopefully be included in an upcoming release!


Kind regards,

Simon

In Addition to that mentioned in the initial request (the most important requirement)

It might be hard to see - but the formatting of the Cross Tab Dimension Values and Measure Headers does not match that of the Column and Row Dimension Headers - It would be nice to have better

They appear to have Blank or White Borders on them - even though this has been removed (as best as can be) - as per the settings chosen below

Note - Export to Excel also does not Include the Formatting on Measure Headers/7edaff3194343ff3563c4ba609e8a623

Hi Mark,


Thanks for sending that through, I'm not sure if that particular behaviour has been noticed! I've added it to the existing task for the Developers. Feel free to respond with any more ideas you have later down the track, where I will get back to you once I hear any further updates.


Kind regards,

Simon,

I am sure you are aware of the other ideas surrounding formatting Cross Tab Reports and Column Headers... But, I thought it would be nice to make mention, if not.

Hi Zack,


Thanks for adding those, I have included them as additions to this specific task so that they will be considered holistically with this particular issue.


Kind regards,
