Universe filters not working OK

Hi Gurus. Can someone help me, PLEASE?

One of my users is convinced that if someone modifies a report that has been scheduled, universe filters used in the report get damaged and don't work properly.

I need to explain my user that if you do something just in your deski report it doesn't alter the universe, but this user is convinced that this is the other way.

I don't know why exactly this user thinks that. Is there any documentation to prove that what you do in a report don't alter universes?

    "One of my users is convinced that if someone modifies a report that has been scheduled, universe filters used in the report get damaged and don't work properly."

    This one i possible, as the filters are already in the report, if someone modifies report SQL, it might not work properly.

    The original filters inside universe will remain untouched.

    I don;t think there is a doc that will say this. It's just how the product works, Deski?Webi read from universe, never write to it.

      I kinda explained it to my user talking about the blue objects (dimensions) that they don't affect the universe if they're used in the report and I'm not sure if I mentioned to her that yellow objects (filters) don't affect universe either, I don't know exactly if it was my explanation that make her change her mind but at the end she concluded that there's nothing wrong with the yellow objects being used at level report.

      Thanks for your help Denis.
