6 March 2020 Patch Release Enhancements
The following usability enhancements were released as part of the 6 March 2020 patch release:
The Import Custom Reports tool has been updated:
- Aggregated Fields - Custom Reports with aggregated fields can now be migrated to Reporting 2.0.
- Reports with Incompatible Fields - Prior to this enhancement, report imports that failed as a result of incompatible fields required the user to delete those fields manually in Custom Reports before attempting the import again. With this enhancement, the incompatible fields are removed automatically upon import. Once imported, a message displays in the import tool indicating which fields were removed.
Note: When migrated to Reporting 2.0, a report that is not summarized will conform to the aggregation behavior in Reporting 2.0. In order to replicate the results from your report in Custom Reports, you can summarize the report in Reporting 2.0.
The time to load the report designer page is reduced. This optimization primarily impacts large portals, but all portals will now have a faster load time.
The following additional Reporting 2.0 enhancements for Performance Reviews and Development Plans were released as part of the 6 March 2020 patch release:
The following additional Reporting 2.0 enhancements were released for Learning as part of the 6 March 2020 patch release:
3 April 2020 Patch Release
The following usability enhancements were released as part of the 3 April 2020 patch release:
Previously, a blank row appeared at the top of the report when the report output was constrained for the users. This occurred when running the report or exporting it. Blank rows also appeared when the Show distinct rows option was disabled in report properties, resulting in a duplicate of each row that was supposed to be hidden due respective to the user’s constraints.
With this enhancement, blank rows will no longer appear.
The Filters section at the top of the report viewer page is expanded by default.
These enhancements are currently available for all portals that have self-enabled Reporting 2.0.
As part of the May '20 release, Reporting 2.0 is generally available and will no longer be able to be self-enabled. See Reporting 2.0 - General Availability.
