Increase amount of documents in BI launch Pad Document Explorer

Dear experts,

even though I have increased the amount of documents per page in preferences to 100 now I have only a miximum of 10 elements per page in the documents explorer I put in BI launch pad. How can I increase the number here???

Thanks to any advice.

    Hello Christine,

    I am not sure the I understood your problem correct. So you changed in BI Launchpad/Preferences with your login under General settings the value of
    "Set the maximum number of items per page" from whatever (I assume 50)
    to 100. But the Launchpad only displays 10 elements per page. I assume
    you already did a reload of the page. In my opinion it should work, except the
    administrator has forbidden to change the value. But then I think you were not allowed
    to change this parameter, it would be greyed out. Maybe you can specify a bit more
    your failure ? By the way, sure a dumb question of mine, but you have multiple pages shown
    in the frontend and not only 1 ?

    Regards

    Markus

    Dear Markus, sorry if I wasn't specific enough. Ok so some more details: I have built a new workspace and put only two widgets in there. The "my recent documents" and the documents explorer where I show folder with documents to my users (by the way I am the administrator myself but am quite new to bo 4.2 (come from 3.1)).
    I have far more folders and documents then only 10 items per page and I do not like the users to switch pages. For the moment I have set up may page to have only 10 items because our inhouse UAT needs to be run urgently. I have enclosed a commented screenshot to be more precise ;-)
    Thanks and Regardsbilaunchpad1.jpg

    Hello Christine,

    you are absolutely right. After your description I could understand the problem much better. Thanks for that more detailed extension. I ran in the same problem as you trying to build a BI Workspace showing the folder content with more than 10 lines. My systems ran SAP BOE 4.2 SP 6 Patch 9 currently. I would assume it could be a bug in this specific bi workspace module. The set value in preferences has no effect on report internals. It affects only the launchpad itself. I will check it tomorrow with 4.2 SP7 on my evaluation-system (but I assume there will be no other behaviour).

    I am very sorry that I can't provide a solution for you.


    Regards
    Markus

    Hello Markus, thanks and yes but I assume that you will not be lucky. We are running 4.2 SP07 ;-).

    If it is a bug then I hope that it will be fixed soon, because this behavior is not nice...
