how to distinguish a report from a chart

Hi , hope you are fine.

Have a question :

In the browser page, we use to be able to add a column name ‘Type’ that display an icon to let the user knows if the report is just a chart or just a report.

I can’t find it anymore.

Did the ‘type’ column is no longer available, and if possible, is any way we can get it back.

Thank you

Mich

Hi Michel,

Thanks for reaching out with this!

What output were you getting with the 'Type' column?

I'm thinking that we may have changed the name of this tag within the page to 'Run Type'. Would you be able to apply this tag and see if that provides what we are looking for.

Best Regards,

Jared

Hi Jared,

Thank you for the quick reply.

The column name ‘type’ when added in the browser page use to display an Icon one looks like a little pie chart for a chart report.

And another little icon for reports that are not chart.

The column 'Run Type' only display  ‘drag and drop builder’.

Thank you

Hi Michel,

I've been digging through our older versions of Yellowfin and am struggling to find a version with this sort type.

Would you happen to have a rough idea of the version number or if you know it, the build version that had this? If not we may need to look at getting this address via an enhancment request.

Best,

Jared

Hi Jared,

This what I found in an old version

524f4675cb8f4ebb7605e3719806b252

From the browse page

d1068abc68b8bc19842de18dac70b1b7

Hope that help.

And you can close this ticket, already informed the client that the column name Type is not available.

Thank you for your help.

Thanks for this information Michel,

We can still look at getting this functionality back into Yellowfin! I've gone ahead and logged this as an Idea for an Enhancement Request to the dev team. This post will be updated with any future information relevant to this process.


Thanks,

Jared
