Links from reports to reporting objects

Allow export/distribution reports the option to include links to reporting objects - task, project, activity etc..


The ability to link directly from reports will provide users with a more useful, dynamic reporting experience.

we should be able to send parameters also in the background. so that once the end user click on the link pdf/excel format report will be displayed to them.

We had this requirement for one of our use case.

PM will raise a issue. then this issue will be send to each team (10 to 20 teams). Each team will access the impact.

at the end of it we need to show the information all them provide on this issue.

Now the PM going to reports page, search for the report and enter the project id and then he/she able to see the information provided.


we are using task level EA for this requirement. Because we need to get at lease 5 to 8 field information. if we are using project level EA for this then we have to spend 8* 20  = 160 EAs. In order to avoid this we are using 8 task level EAs.

As we are using task level EAs, all are got reset when the task got close. Yes, that is the functionality of task level EA.


Else, we should talk about better content management options in Aprimo, in-order to entertain these kind of business requirements.
