As of December 1, 2020, Focal Point is retired and repurposed as a reference repository. We value the wealth of knowledge that's been shared here over the years. You'll continue to have access to this treasure trove of knowledge, for search purposes only.

New TIBCO Community Coming Soon
In early summer, TIBCO plans to launch a new community—with a new user experience, enhanced search, and expanded capabilities for member engagement with answers and discussions! In advance of that, the current myibi community will be retired on April 30. We will continue to provide updates here on both the retirement of myibi and the new community launch.

What You Need to Know about Our New Community
We value the wealth of knowledge and engagement shared by community members and hope the new community will continue cultivating networking, knowledge sharing, and discussion.

During the transition period, from April 20th until the new community is launched this summer, myibi users should access the TIBCO WebFOCUS page to engage.

I read this PDF https://www.informationbuilder...ng_data_webfocus.pdf

Some great examples of InfoApps. On page 4 there is a guided self-service report.
Is there somewhere a step-by-step tutorial on how to create such a guided self-service report?

Chuck answered on this one in the other forum, but there he is referring to AppStudio.
Since Designer is the future I wonder if there are already possibilities to do the design there?

Regards
Ron

Hai Michele

I give it a second try

https://www.informationbuilder...ng_data_webfocus.pdf

The PDF, an InfoApps Solution Brief, is called 'Visualizing, Analyzing and Interacting with Data, Using Sophisticated, Intuitive Analytic Apps'

Ron

Hi Ronibi,

Designer functionality to create this type of InfoApp is still in development. Are you interested in providing feedback on the resources as they are being developed?

Thanks,
Mary

Just as an FYI I created an InfoApp fex with app studio like the one I provided for you. I then opened up page designer and dragged that fex into a panel. It recognized all the amper variables as filters and allowed me to use the all option on the data filters and it actually worked pretty well. If the data fields used for the filters have hierarchical dimensions defined in the master file they automatically chain based on that hierarchy which is very cool. If they don't have the hierarchy defined in the master file then there is no way to chain them in the designer page. So for the time being based on what I have done you can create the infoapp fex using App Studio and then use the Page designer for the interface and not have to build an html form to drive it.
