Dashboard - Report with Table and Chart

Marek Ceizel shared this question 2 months ago

Hello everyone,


I need help with the dashboard. I use yellowfin in BMC SmartReporting so not sure if this is somehow specific for this implementation .... but I try.


I defined a report which has a pie chart. If I preview the report the chart is left and the table with data right. (attached report picture).

Now I want to show this report exactly as it is in dashboard. However this is not possible. In Dashboard is either Pie Chart shown or the table with data. I can switch between them with a button but I cannot manage to show the report in dashboard with chart and table together - attached dashboard screenshot.


Is this yellowfin specific or just the problem of BMC SmartReporting implementation ? :(


thanks a lot

Marek

Hi Marek,

Within Version 9 you have the option to add more than one report hence no warning/error stating that the report is already added. By doing this you can then create the report/dashboard with the layout you require;

Hi Marek,

I hope all is well,

Unfortunately this is not possible, as it stands you only have the option to use either the Chart View or Table View;

However we do have a way of achieving this and that is in the form of adding the report twice placing this within the area (layout) you want then setting the chart to the left then the table to the rights;

NOTE: Added the report twice is possible in Version 9.

Alternatively you could use a Drill Through setting this to a popup of which it would then look like this:

Although this would only give you a chart based on the drill you clicked.

With this and going forward it would be best to reach out to BMC as a first point of contact for issues like this as this is the direct path for Smart reporting questions. Let me know your thoughts on this.

Thank you Mark. Not good news but at least confirmed :)

I was also thinking about adding the Report twice and use 2 Column Layout, however If I want to add it in the second column I get a message that the report is already added. So I will have to create two separate reports with the same content. That is quite ugly
