Make scheduled Data Warehouse requests editable.

It would be extreme helpful if exisiting scheduled Data Warehouse requests could be editable to make changes to the recipients or the request at itself.

For what it is worth, SC15 addresses many of the DW scheduling inconveniences.

With SiteCatalyst 15 you can duplicate an existing request, edit it and schedule it. Then you can delete the old version.

I guess I'll just have to wait for my client to upgrade from 14.9 then Smiley Sad

You can change the schedule, or even the recipients, but you can't edit the report.  To do that, you have to "duplicate" it, make the changes you want and then set up the recipients and scheduling all over again.

I don't think it's correct to mark this one as "Already Offered".  Can it be reconsidered, or should I create a new item for this?

 

I run into an issue quite often where a DW report that's been scheduled and running for a long time needs a column added to/deleted from it.  In order to do that, I have to click "Duplicate" on the existing report, make the change and then fill in the following all over again:

 

  • The filename of the report.
  • The subject line of the email.
  • The recipients and/or FTP information (not fun to go look up).
  • The scheduling (easy to make a mistake on).

If Duplicate is the only thing we're going to be able to do with these reports, please duplicate everything.  Better yet, make that change to Duplicate AND all scheduled reports to be edited in place.

PFG makes a good point that there are some aspects of editing that are not part of duplication. I'm changing this to "Partially Implemented."
