We are running into similar challenge. Recently we made few changes in
our report suite and impacted quite some dashboards. Less than 5% of the
dashboard recepients reached out to us. Which makes us believe that
large number are not being used. But we do not know which one.
As I have 150 report suites that all have dashboards it would be much
more professional if each report suite could have it's own logo and then
this be published on any dashboard/report generated for it.
Six months ago 'Date Created' was introduced. It has no relevance or
meaning to my business. We send around 150 dashboards to around 900
users each day (Which covers 150 report suites) none of the stakeholders
care that the dashboard was created at 06.42 EDT, they would rather it
shows the date range of the dashboard Eg - Mon 19th - Sun 25th July
2010. This is useful information if as all reportlets in the dashboards
we send are for the same time period. Can this be be reintroduced (Think
This is a good idea. It would certainly make it easier to get going with
the new features. What we can certainly do immediately is try to
describe, in comments on an idea when we change the status to
"Implemented," how to get more information on the feature. We'll also
look at improving the workflow further.
