Report Studio in Cognos 11.1 and making drilldown breadcrumbs
I’ll admit it. Since I’ve started working at PMsquare, I’ve been a bit remiss on updating this blog. What’s even worse, I’ve started cheating on my own blog and I’ve been writing periodically for the PMsquare one!
My last two posts there are well worth the time to read.
The first is an overview of Report Studio. With Cognos 11.1 released for cloud customers, and an on-prem version being released imminentlyish (November or December maybe?) my article goes into the nitty gritty of the changes in Report Studio. With lots of nice animations of me fooling around with it. There are some really nice features, and one annoying change. Read it here: http://www.pmsquare.com/main/blog/cognos-11-1-reporting/
The second is a technique for making breadcrumbs with advanced drillthrough options. It works beautifully in every version of Cognos I’ve tested in, but only in non-interactive mode. Read it here: http://www.pmsquare.com/main/blog/drilldown-breadcrumbs-in-cognos-analytics
