Hi Support,


Is there a table in the configuration database that contains information about the comments that were made on the dashboard using the collaboration functionality?

/6d592491bcff147739d1bfe8a4a8ef70

A client wants to create a report of those comments in Yellowfin.

Hi Tshepiso,

Comments are stored in the textdata table, usually wrapped in a <span></span> tag, e.g.


<span>This is amazing to say the least</span>They are paired with a textid so it should be possible to create a report but will be a little tricky. I hope that points you and your client in the right direction.


Apologies for the delay in response, I believe this was originally posted as an internal note rather than a direct reply to you.

Kind regards,

Chris

Hi Chris,


I hope you are well.


Do comments have an expiry date?

I am asking this because we recently pointed an old instance to a fresh install and we have lost the old comments on the dashboard. The only visible comment is now just the latest one.


Is there a way that we can get them back on the dashboard/reports?
