Trouble with Captions.

Guillaume BREDIF asked on December 14, 2017

I am using flexmonster v2.4.
My report is in flat mode at the beginning (no measure). When I switch to pivot mode, I have some trouble with my labels (see attachments).
The caption property is not displayed when you add a value from a column or if you want to add a custom measure.
I am not sure if it’s a bug or if I am not understanding the caption property.
Thx for your help.

Hello, Guillaume,
Thank you for posting your question on our help forum.
Currently, the caption property works the following way:

  • if you specify caption for hierarchies (rows/columns), the caption is shown for hierarchies only
  • if you specify caption for values, the caption is shown for values only

We think it would we more logical if it was possible to specify caption that works for both hierarchies and values. This improvement will be added to our minor release 2.411, ETA January 2nd.
Also, we have noticed some visual issues on the screenshots you provided. They are fixed in our latest available version so we suggest updating. For more details please refer to our updating guide
Does the ETA work for you?
