Frequently Asked Questions
Using Dundas BI
While editing items such as dashboards and metric sets, you won't see a Save button in the toolbar because Dundas BI automatically saves your work for you. The next time you make a change, go to the status bar at the bottom, wait a few seconds, and you'll see a status message telling you the current item has been 'Saved'. See this article for further reference.
Go to your status bar at the bottom and click the Explore icon to the left of the dashboard name.
There isn't much of a difference, and you have to be careful because changes you make in View mode are saved even when you switch back to Edit mode. See this article for more details.
Hierarchies added to the SLICERS field are not rendered on any visualization axis. They are used for filtering only. See this article for more details.
Once you've designed your data cube (ETL process), you can choose the in-memory storage type which can significantly improve the performance of data retrieval.
Building the in-memory cube can take some time though, depending on the columns and default measures selected in your data cube. For this reason, the build can be scheduled to run periodically.
The in-memory cube is also persisted to the Dundas BI Warehouse database so that it can be reloaded back into memory in the event the server is restarted.
If you make changes to your data cube after the in-memory storage has been built, you should manually rebuild the in-memory storage.
