Only show user selected filters in exported reports

Hi Yellowfin,

Currently you can either enable or disable the filters at the bottom or top of an exported report. The issue here however is that we have some preset filters in the report that the Users never see, so it looks odd to have them included in the export of the report at runtime. I would like to add the option to show just the user selected filters?

Thank you,

Thanks for reaching out with your suggestion. I've logged this as an Idea for an Enhancement Request. Before becoming a request, ideas will be reviewed by our Product Team and chosen for Enhancements based on feasibility, level of positive impact to the user experience, and votes from the community. This post will be updated with any future information relevant to this process.




is there any progress with this idea?

this is very important. most of the time users don't really know what filters are behind. we want to export only filters that the user apply (the filters that are shown at the top of the report web page when running a report.




Hi Reut,

Thank you for reaching out to us. At this stage this has not been assessed for inclusion in a future build. Not all ideas make it into the product roadmap but all ideas lead to some new thinking for our team, so I have noted your interest in this enhancement and will keep you updated.




Good to see more interest in this :-)

We are currently trying to move away from custom built reports, but finding roadblocks such as this - things that you can so easily code into a custom page/report that aren't available in yellowfin. Another one being allowing the user to choose 1,2 or up to 3 fields to group and sub-total their data by. E.g. show me my data totalled by sales region, or by country, or by account manager then country, then etc. etc.
