While sending report it does not filter as used from Prompt, it sends all info to the user??
Even after prompt usage, and sending after also send all the data.
Any tips to stop such list.
As far as I am aware, you are not able to use prompts when sending reports directly from Workfront. Since prompts are effectively filters that are configured 'on the fly' by a user, they are lost when you go to send the report because Workfront re-generates the report from scratch (losing your prompt settings) when you go to send it.
In order to over come this, you will either need to:
Ah jeez, and I just promised I could do this‚Ä¶
So I couldn't set up a "Send" for a report without getting past the prompt. So I assumed it saved that prompt answer as part of the send.
Yes, it does not @Kevin Quosig‚
I don't know but this are the basic things required while using such options. Believe in coming future Workfront can see these basic and must type potentials and implement soon.
HI @Richard Leek‚
Thank you, I absolutely agree with you, but as a whole we miss this functionality which is required.
Have a nice day!
So the workaround I assume is to duplicate the report and hard-wire the filter so no prompt is needed?
Can I assume $$USED.ID and $TODAY and things like that still work, as long as they are a filter and not a prompt?
Yes, the workaround would be to duplicate the report and hard code the prompt criteria as filter rules.
User based wildcards don't work as you would expect. When you set up the report send, you specify the user that you want the report to be delivered with the access rights of (which is defaulted to the person that set up the report send). So if the report had an 'Assigned to = $$USER.ID' filter rule set up, the report would show all tasks assigned to you if you were the person who set up the report send. For this reason, you will need to remove the $$USER.ID wildcard from the filter rules and hardcode the desired user name into the filter rules before sending the report.
Date based wildcards aren't affected by report sends and will continue to behave as you expect.
So I'd have to generate a copy of the report, one for each user who needed the automated send?
The plan was to send this report to a number of team leads and have it focus on themselves and their team‚Ä¶
Yes, you would need a copy of the report for each recipient with their repective team's / user names hard coded as filter rules.
