Improvements Made to Business Objects

05/22/17

We are pleased to announce some improvements in BusinessObjects. The tool was updated over the weekend with 4.2 SP3 Patch 6. Some of the changes are:

  • Restore Reports with the Recycle Bin. Accidentally deleted reports can now be restored. After you delete report and refresh the page, a Recycle Bin will appear on the lower left of the Documents page between Folders and Search. Note: If you accidentally delete a report in a unit-maintained folder, please contact the ITS Service Center.
  • New functionality in HTML mode. Rather than switching to the applet, you can now do the following in HTML mode:
    • Create a subquery.
    • Create reports that use an Excel spreadsheet as a data source.
    • Set up conditional formatting to highlight specific values in a report.   
  • Improvements in exporting to Excel.
  • Bug fixes, including correcting an issue with scheduling on the 31st day of the month.
