We are using the IBI - BI Dashboard (Created using Business Intelligence Dashboard View Builder ) . We are using the 'Tree' link from the logo and link option to retrieve the saved reports. Is there a way that I can achieve the following.

1. Change the font, size , position and text of the 'tree link'

2.When ever opening up reports from the Dashboard, the report just opens up, is there a way to open up the report in the same template as the dashboard?

1. You would need to modify the CSS files that control the banner area of the dashboard. First find the 'View Link URL' name of the dashboard through the view builder tool (something like aa_gbv or aa_mpv). Then find that folder that contains the css, assuming you're are on a Windows server the path would be -C:\ibi\WebFOCUSXX\worp\worp_custom\aa_gbv\

In that folder, open the banner.css file, and change the properties of the links. Particularly, look at the 'A' or '.text' elements.

2. I imagine you're asking about opening up a report from the 'tree link'. You would need to integrate the look and feel into the saved report.

Thanks for the tip.

Regarding the second question, We have links on our dashboard for each report. Once the report link is clicked, the report comes up but not nested in the Dashboard banner and footer. Is there a way to have the report open up again within the dashboard template (banner and footer)

when you create or edit that dashboard, Edit Content, there is an option for creating an Output Block.
with a List of fexes on the left, and an area on the right where the report appears.
so you'll have 2 Blocks
a Tree block type
and an Output Block Type
you'll click Page Layout to decide how much space to give each, 35% 75% is a good start.
