Configuring a Report List widget

A Report List widget displays a list of reports and allows opening these reports for viewing, printing, or exporting directly from the dashboard.

You specify the properties of a new Report List widget or modify properties of an existing widget of this type using the Report List Widget Properties window.

NOTE: For details on initial steps of widget creation or modification, see Creating widgets or Modifying widgets.

Report List Widget Properties window

The Widget tab of this window includes the following fields and controls:

General section - specifies general properties of the widget:

Name - the "internal" name of the widget, which identifies it in widget lists.

Title - the widget title, which will be actually displayed in dashboards.

Allow to minimize widget - specifies whether users can minimize this widget.

Hide widget when data is not available - specifies whether the widget will be hidden if no reports are available to the user.

Reports section - allows you to manage the list of reports displayed within the widget:

    • To add a report to the widget, click New. In the Report Name field, select the report to show in the widget. Optionally, you can modify the report reference caption in the Caption field. Click OK.

    • To modify an entry, select it, click Edit, change its properties as needed, and click OK.

    • To rearrange items within the widget, use the Move Up and Move Down buttons.

    • To remove a report from the widget, select it in the list and click Delete.

Display Properties section - specifies the number of lines to display in the widget:

Number of lines to display - effectively determines the widget height:

      • To limit the height of the report list, enter the number of lines to show. The widget will automatically add a scroll bar when the number of reports in the list exceeds the specified height. The height will be reduced automatically when the number of reports is less than the specified height.

      • To let the widget adjust its height automatically to show the entire list, click display all.

The Dashboards tab of the Report List Widget Properties window allows you to view the list of dashboards where the widget is used. For details, see Viewing dashboards where a widget is used.
