Link Input Controls for Entire WEBI Document


I am new to Web Intelligence and have a document with 3 reports (3 tabs in the same WEBI document). All 3 reports are sourced from the same query (on the same universe).

Is there a way that I can link my Input Controls across all 3 reports within my WEBI document? I am only able to link my Input Control for the Report Elements that are within that specific report (or tab).

For instance, if my user selects a specific Division, they would like to see all 3 reports updated accordingly for the Division selected.

Your replies are much appreciated (in advance). We are on BI 4.0.

Thanks, A. Cook

    Hi Cook,

    Input controls are defined over the report (tab ) level...for each report tab you have to create a new input control...

    As also you can see from the properties of input control .. in the attached image there are two report tabs on the same query on same universe ..but while defininf input control on report 2 there is no option to activate it for report1 also.

    There is an option to create prompts on the report level.

    Every time User refreshes the report it will ask for user to enter the values they want to see.

    Hope this helps!
