Report name should be displayed on header while report in edit mode.

Hi,


When we open a report in edit mode we should have a report reference somewhere in the report builder while i am editing, Most convenient place would be at header of report builder, Because sometime users end up modifying wrong/Similar report and they will come to know when they finish editing and run the report in Output step,


Thanks.

Abhijeet

Hi Abhijeet,


Thanks for your feedback.

What you've proposed would be a useful feature, and has been submitted to the dev team as the task # 225006.

Unfortunately the task has yet to be allocated or planned, so I cannot actually provide an ETA.


Thanks again for raising this idea, as it does help us gauge how much demand there is for this with our YF community.


Regards,

David

To be honest this should have been implemented as a feature a LONG time ago. Not displaying the name of the item you are editing on the screen breaks two of the 10 heuristics of user interface design https://www.nngroup.com/articles/ten-usability-heuristics/)


Visibility of system status

The system should always keep users informed about what is going on, through appropriate feedback within reasonable time

Recognition rather than recall

Minimize the user's memory load by making objects, actions, and options visible. The user should not have to remember information from one part of the dialogue to another.

A user's short term memory is a scarce resource and it should never be wasted if at all possible.

I suggest this be implemented as soon as possible.
