create multiple outputs (design's) from one report
As I understand correctly the workflow in YellowFin is as follows: databaseconnection > view > report > dashboard. This works oke but after working some time with YellowFin I miss the option to create multiple outputs (tab design) from one report.
Let me explain...
I am working on a dashboard with about 14 visualisations on it. I end up with 14 reports I have build although many reports are based on the same dataset (more or less). Why I decided on creating 14 reports is when I add multiple charts to one report I have to put them on the design tab in one design page. When I do that I loose all intelligent resizing.
When I have a dashboard with one report with multiple charts in a design then resizing the dashboard keeps the original size. So if the originel design in the report is like half-dashboard size then on a full screen it looks small. On the other side when the original design is full-dashboard width then on a smaller screen you are missing a part of the chart.
For this reason I decided on using 14 reports. If I add each of these to the dashboard resizing the dashboard also resizes the reports on the dashboard. That is the behaviour I want.
But managing the 14 report is more cumbersome that one report.
I would like to see the option to add charts to different designs within one report. A little bit like adding multiple queries to the data part of the report.
When adding a report to a dashboard you should get a selection dropdown for which design you want to add (if more than 1). If must then off course be possible to add a report multiple times to a dashboard.
This way the folders are not littered with reports and smart solutions in the data part of a report can be used with multiple designs in one report. Think calculated fields, ect.
Maybe an alternative solution is possible. If so, let me know :-).
