I've submitted a couple more, related to Information Design Tool:

Format Multiple Objects Simultaneously: In Designer, we can select multiple objects at once, and apply formatting to all of them together. In IDT, we need to apply formats to objects, one at a time. We should be able to multi-select objects, and format them all at once. In addition, it would be great to have a format painter, so we can copy the format of one object, to another object.

Saving Custom Formats: In Designer, when I create a custom format, and apply it to an object, that format is saved, so I can use it again on another object. However, in IDT, if I create a custom format, I can only apply it to the currently selected object. If I want to apply it to another object, I have to recreate it for that object. I would like the ability to create and save custom formats, so I don't have to create them over and over again.

Oh, yes. A BIG vote for that one. icon_cool.gif

I just opened another one. I can't believe this is missing:

IDT - Show Object SQL: When using the @Select function in an object's SQL, we are missing the fuinctionality to "Show Object SQL" like we have in Designer. It's very difficult to troubleshoot an object unless I can see the entire SQL being used. Please add the functionality to see the entitre SQL statement when using the @Select or @Where functions.

The more I work in IDT, the more frustrated I am with it. I feel a blog post coming on. icon_eek.gif

Surely when they designed it, the minimum functionality was, errr, what Designer could already do banghead.gif

You would think so. But I'm finding a whole bunch of missing functionality, that was available in Designer. That's why I keep submitting so many ideas.

Wow, that was fast. And after only 4 votes. But the comment says that they are already working on it. Sweet.

That's actually one of my beefs with Ideas -- they'll consider that to be a delivered idea, even though it was already in the works at the time you submitted it.

I've added another one, requesting the Grouping feature we had in Deski, be added to Webi. This is the feature that would automatically create variables, grouping values together from the data. Currently, if we want to do this in Webi, we need to write an If - Then - Else variable.

+1

They should have just preloaded the Ideas site with stuff in DeskI that's not in WebI.

Best idea yet. I don't know why they ignored so many of the great Deski features when creating Webi. I understand prioritization and all that, but Deski has been on its deathbed more or less for 9 years as mentioned in another post I can't find at the minute so I have very little sympathy for that argument. No possibility to reuse Deski code with a new shade of lipstick? Somebody forgot the password to the Deski source control system?

Could keep anorak busy for weeks porting his thread over to the SAP Ideas place. Hide in pivot would be useful - there's only so many workarounds you can use before you compromise the maintability of a report.
