Default View on Analytics Tab
Using release 5.3.2 HF4. When clicking on the Analyics Tab, is there a way to change the default drop down box for "View" from Strategy Map to Analysis Designer?

We don't always set up formal strategy maps for every scorecard and our users are generally interested in going to the Analytics tabe only for the purposes of creating a report, or running a saved report.

I'd like to remove the step of having thme wait for the strategy map to load, then changing the value to analysis designer.
Thank you in advance for any assistance.

It's possible by customizing the JavaScript for the Analytics tab.

The PMF page you want to change is analysis_navbar.htm, found in /approot/mainstreet.

   function onLoadFunc()
      run_report_where  = "LAUNCH_PAGE EQ 'stratrep'";


Replace stratrep with the focexec name of the PMF Content FOCEXEC you want to run instead.
You can get the FOCEXEC name from Manage tab > Content tree and clicking the Content item you wish to run by default instead of stratrep.

if for some reason that "default" item is not found (for example if you've hidden that item from the current Scorecard, or if it's a typo or whatever), the code automatically adapts to run the first item retrieved in the list instead.

Hope this helps.

Note: The Analytics tab is going away in PMF 8.1.1.
All consumers will have full access to all content categories from the new Today tab - the Today tab wraps the Analytics tab into it.
