By Default when a User is Generating a Report (Query Builder not necessarily Windchill BI) all of the attributes etc. (selectables) that are defined in the Query Builder SELECT Tree are not selected. The User has to take positive action... usually clicking Select All to make the Report generation viable (have something to return). Yes, Saved Reports capability would allow for a Saved Report with all selectables pre-selected but the thing is that would be at least two extra clicks instead of the one to click select all.
Idea is to streamline user experience by either
- Set the default behaviour to pre-select all selectables (preferred, minimum required for users and report authors)
- Allow report authors to determine pre-selected yes/no for all selectables
