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.
There isn't much of a difference, and you should keep in mind that changes you make in View mode can be saved if you then switch back to Edit mode. See this article for more details.
You can use the Dundas BI embed library to easily embed Dundas BI into web applications and other webpages.
You can also embed Dundas BI into any other type of application the same way you would embed any webpage, by navigating to the desired Dundas BI URL.
Hierarchies added to the Slicers field are not displayed anywhere in the visualization (including its tooltips) and 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.
