"Linked" indicator in browse list

Hi team,

Just wanting to know what linkages (eg - dashboard to report, report to report) prompt a linked indicator being displayed when browsing reports in list mode.

It seems that this only displays when a report has related content links - not when it is linked to by another report or dashboard. Is this correct?

Hi Nick,

I hope all is well,

From what I can see this appears to be the case and unfortunately we don't have any documentation on this... however I will double check with our team to see if we have any further explanation. I hope this is ok Nick.

Mark

Hi Mark,

Thanks, not a huge issue but would be nice to have some information available on what the linked icon represents.

I have been building my own management tool to display objects and their relationships from the config database - just doing some comparison between this an YF front end to check I have links correct.

Regards,

Nick

I have informed our documentation (Wiki) team so that we can have this looked at, hopefully we can have a quick turn around on this... With this I will go ahead and mark this Question as Answered, although please feel free to bug me anytime, I will also try to keep you updated as much as I can.

I hope this is ok Nick.

Hi Mark,


I had a thought about this the other day and really hoped that one day the link icon could be an actual link to a popup that list what reports are linked. All of our drill-through reports have this icon but I cannot find what they dill to without editing or running the report and drilling through to the child report. Child reports do not display a link icon unless they drill through to another child. It would be nice to see the hierarchy somehow.

Hi Nick,

I hope all is well,

I come with good news (I hope), it looks like our team who control the YF Wiki have added additional information to this area. You can find this here.
