Blank Prompt to capture name

Hi,

Is it possible to Prompt a user where he or she can enter her full name and the same be displayed on the report?

I have a report where in we need to display the full name of the user. Initially there was only one user, so I created a variable to display the name of the user.

Now the number of users have increased and I do not want to create separate instances for each user.

Is there any way where we can ask the User to "Enter Your Full Name:" and the same be shown on the report?

Thanks a ton.

    If you have a Universe where you can fetch the Company Employee Info. You should create a object using @Variable('BOUSER') in the Universe and use it in your main query. Add another query that only brings User id and Username info filter it on User Id and get the value for this filter from the result of the first query.

    Since you will be displaying the User info in the header you dont need to merge dimensions just use the results from the second query in your header.

    Hope this helps

    Hi Raheem,

    Please make it clear about what type of data source you are using?

    Is it necessary to have full name of the user? or just picking the userid will meet your requirement?

    To pick userid, you just need to use "CurrentUser()" webi function.No prompt is needed to get the userid.\

    Hi

    If u have an Object with the list of users then , It is possible

    drag and drop the object in queryfilter and make it as prompt and beside there is a question mark click on that and uncheck all the options . and finally the operator should be Match pattern .

    It is case sensitive,When you are entering the name manually the name should match with the list of value , if it returns true then value be retrieved .

    So my suggestion is to follow up with emp key value. 😊

    Hope this helps u

    Thanks & Regards

    Sunil
