Hi Otis,


generally speaking, if a report contains both a chart and a table then all 5 export options will be available, however, if there is only a chart then the CSV and Text options won't be available because it is not possible to render a chart in a plain text file or a comma separated values file (and this includes if the dashboard tab is showing the chart by default and not the table when a report has both chart and table).


If the above description does not apply to your dashboard tab then this may be a bug. Could you please tell us what your report and dashboard contain (maybe it would be easier just to show some screenshots), and also tell us what version and build of Yellowfin you are using, then we can try and replicate the issue over here.


regards,

David

Issue2:

In our production environment,I can not see "share" and "Information" under Dashboard report menu. I think it maybe need a additional configuration options to hide them.could you please tell how to hide the "share" and "Information" button in Dashboard report menu?

Issue2 is fixed on check on 'Distribute Reports' and check off 'hide Report Details(report) on roles setting of Report Menu.

So the remaining problem is:

1. can not see 'export to CSV' option when changing report view from Chart to Table in dashboard.It need to refresh dashboard and then you can see it.

2. can not see 'export to text' option even if I change the view mode from Chart to Table and then refresh the dashboard.
