Collapse the Input control Tray by default when opening the report


Is there a way or a setting that I can apply to a Webi report , that when I open up the report by double clicking it, it shows me the report on the whole screen without any input control screen opened. I do not wish the users to see the left pane of the report where it is currently opeining the INput control screen by default. Can I hide it by default??

Header 1 Header 2 Input Control Webi report Can we hide this section by Default

    the following Javascript script, set inside a blank cell of a WEBI report , will collapse the Left panel.



    In order it t work try as follows :

    1 - Drop a blank cell onto the report;

    2 - Set it´s property "Read As" to HTML;

    3 - Put the script inside the formula panel of the cell;

    Another settings that  must be done is altering the view/modify mode tio HTML,

    If you save the report with the left pane collapsed, it would apply to the report and users will not have the left pane opened by default.

    Using customization feature available in 4.1, you can hide the pane entirely. Go to CMC --> Users and Groups --> Right click on the user group --> Select Customization --> And Uncheck the options you want to hide

      Thanks Shwetha, I have that enabled as the users want to use them but on the initial display of report I do not want to show it. As is mentioned in the thread above , I had been doing a save with the input controls collapsed , but if that's the only way , we are good with it and users are happy with it. Thanks for your reply and showing me the settings.

    HI Aarav ,

    afaik, it is a user level setting that should be done only once .

    If you are Admin/ have rights to login as the user , then open any report . collapse left hand side panel .Save the report .This setting then will work as global setting .
