Use All Alias Tables on Refresh

If set to Yes, the system evaluates the alias name against all alias tables. If set to No (default setting), the system evaluates the alias name against the currently selected alias table.

Not applicable in Enterprise Profitability and Cost Management.

Attribute Dimension Re-order Threshold

Enter a threshold value between 0 and 500 (500 is the default value).

For attribute dimensions, when the number of members under a given parent exceeds the specified threshold value, then the members will be reordered at the end of a metadata load instead of during the load. Depending on the specific shape of the attribute dimension, adjusting this number can sometimes have an impact on performance. In general, this setting can be ignored unless attribute dimension load times degrade beyond acceptable levels.

To upload TrueType fonts, click Report Settings, click Manage Fonts, click Add button, and then select the font files to upload.
