New UI dashboard - ability to display our own Cognos reports

The new UI only allows for 3 out of the box dashboards (My Assignments, Subscriber, Oversight) to be displayed. We want the ability to create our own dashboards using our own Cognos reports. This way we can make sure the dashboards more closely match our users needs. We have a number of different reports we want to display on the homepage.

    Hi Lulu,

    We were happy to get on a call to further discuss this use case and arrive at an acceptable workaround!

    We are still tracking this enhancement request for a future release.

    Thanks and Regards,

    Update: the above commented issue resolved!

    By replacing the usual URL with the report's URL on whatever access point the organisation chooses (i.g. a hyperlinked logo on intranet), users upon login are directly landed upon the custom Cognos report content!

    Quite a simple yet effective resolution!

    Hey John, I believe we have a similar request as the original.

    See attached Standard UI where the landing page (1st page user sees upon login) is defaulted to a custom Cognos report that we call Risk Leader Dashboard. This essentially replaces the OP HomePage with a lot more user friendly and corporate branding relevant content. Leaders upon accessing OP knows exactly what his/her accountable items are - whether it's his/ her own items or something sitting in his team/entity.

    We want the same in TFUI.

    However, we came to learn that the TFUI tabs are not exactly the same as standard UI nor is the Dashboard feature and the Cognos report dashboard cannot be displayed upon TFUI landing page.

    As a workaround we managed to append a link to the custom inbuilt Cognos report from TFUI. But users will have to click again and this defies the purpose of having the landing page dashboard to be intuitive and relevant.

    Will we bring back/ align the TFUI dashboard or tabs functionalities with the standard UI's?

    Hi Richard,

    To confirm, are you requesting other tabs "In Addition" to the existing 3?

    Can you provide some use case examples (in text or mockups)?
