TARGIT Community’s Most Asked Questions (and Answers)

Our community is dedicated to everything related to TARGIT, and our mission is to make the platform the fastest way to access insight and answers. Here’s a sampling of the types of questions and answers you can expect to find there:

Q: How do I prevent people from using Export to Excel?

A: Exporting to Excel can be controlled through ‘Rights.’ In TARGIT Management Studio, in the Rights section, you can create a Rights group (or edit one of the existing ones). In the ‘Rights’ tab of this group, scroll down to Consumer rights and find the option ‘Export table data to CSV/Excel/XML’ and set the permission to ‘None in these rights.’

Q: How do I show the dimension name above columns of a cross table?”

A: I don't think you can have the information right in the column header - however you could add it to the title of the crosstab like this.

Q: I’m using dynamic time showing the previous 12 months. I noticed that sometimes users want to “pretend” that the starting point is a month other than the current one. Is this possible?

A: In the criteria bar you can add a Dynamic Time Origin. The users can then input their own date.

Q: Is it possible to schedule export to Excel and, if so, how? Ideally, I want my export to include every object in my TARGIT Document.

A: In addition to Steppi's comment, you can specify to export all data objects in the Format pane of Schedule Job setup. Just select MS Excel format and check “Export all data objects to multiple sheets.”

Q: Can I rename a caption in a crosstab without using translations in TARGIT Management and, if so, how?

A: You can right-click on the specific caption, then choose Table > Dynamic Captions > Edit dynamic caption for this member. On the left, it will open this tab where you can input your own caption instead of {cell value}.
