Finally a solution which will enable dynamic tabbing feature in Dashboard. A very simple feature to configure. I will let the video do the talking.

If you had not notified me then I would have never guessed my video was in private mode. I thank you. I just made it public. Hopefully it works. Enjoy!

Regards

I just tried viewing the video link and I was able to view it just fine. I even tried running it from my friend's pc and it worked there also. Could it be something with your system?

Video did not work for me. Sound is there but the viewing area is cut in half and nothing happens.

Too Funny!! Need to hit the Play arrow on the left, then, go to the 4:35 mark. He talks for the 1st 4 minutes...

Basically, he is editing the usr.xml(I think, very hard to see) and hard-coding user id's and what tabs they see:

  
<user>
  <userid=wf_userid</userid>
  <groupview=ab_123_whatever</groupview>
  <visibletabs=Tab1|Tab2|Tab3</visibletabs>
</user>


He is a consultant, selling his services...

IMO, maintenance nightmare...

Hi Susannah,

I can't find it either. At the end of his video, he says to contact him for the code at www.techsolutionnow.com.

It may be viable for a very small company, but, I don't see how it is viable anywhere else...

I may be incorrect, but, "I" am not interested...

thanks Tom,
its supposed to be a new feature anyway, i remember Brian Suter talking about it at a user conference last year.
Based on the agita with the demo, i agree w/ you.

Thanks everyone for viewing the video and sorry to those who weren’t able to view it at all or just half way through. Honestly I tried launching it from different computes but just didn't face any issues. The default size of the video player is kind of small but there is full screen option. Please check if your machine is running the up-to-date version required by the player.

Anyway I wasn't hoping to see the comments received but I respect everyone’s opinion. My solution was out of my frustration with dashboard lacking dynamic tabbing. So I took it upon me to figure something out and I did!!! Understood version 8 supports dynamic tabbing but today, based off my extensive search, there is no solution for this feature in version 7.x and less. If you know of any please do share and I am not talking about creating multiple dashboards for all the different tab combinations.

About selling this instead of giving it away why not sell it. It took me long hours to get this to solution to work for a feature which is on a lot of dashboard admin's wish list. I feel for the time and labor behind it, it is absolutely fair for me to sell it. Wouldn’t you DO IT!!
Anyway to finish my comment, this feature works great… I was able to sell it to few customers, and they are reaping the benefits. I wish you all the best.
