Currently, when users log into the Web Applications (Contributor applications). the system always opens the tab/worksheet that the user had accessed last during their previous session. This behavior causes significant delays for users, because typically the last tab/worksheet they open is their detailed report (large), so the next time they log in, the system starts them on this worksheet, and they have to wait 1-3 minutes for this worksheet to render before they can proceed to the worksheet that they want to work with.
There should be an ability to identify a default worksheet by application, so the web application always opens that specific predefined worksheet on log in; not the one that was last opened during the user's session.
This functionality existed in TM1Web, so why not here too?
|Who would benefit from this IDEA?||Users. Save them time when using the web applications|
How should it work?
A web applications "properties" cube that would allow storing a "default" worksheet by application and preferably by user, so when the applications.jsp runs, it opens the worksheet identified in this properties cube. If the properties cube is blank, it continues to work as it does today.
Current work-around: Delete browser cache/temp files, so the first worksheet that opens on log on is the first worksheet in the list of worksheets in the web application. However, this is very inconvenient for users.
|Priority Justification||This is not a "high" priority requirement, however the users have been voicing their displeasure about having to wait instead of directly proceeding to their worksheet|
