Enhance advanced dispatcher routing to allow for AdHoc/Non-Core reports to be routed differently to "Approved" reports.

This would be useful, as it would allow the organisation to ensure efficient execution of "approved" reports (possibly driven by an administrative flag in the product) to dedicated resources, whereas other reports would be routed to a default rout...

Data Set history - Allow user to set how many runs to remember

Add Scope as filter in the GUI on Past Activities

We no longer allow our end users monitor their schedules from the administration console. Instead, they now use the option from the GUI accessible from either "My schedules and subscriptions" or "Manage-Activities". In both latter cases, they have...

Job queue visible to any Author with access to the Job/Report

At our university, each department has its own reporting team, and they are responsible for scheduling their own jobs and reports. However, Cognos only allows a developer to see the reports that they themselves scheduled -- not the entire departme...

Sort Order

In Cognos 11.2 onwards, we should be able to sort the content in Team Content/My Content irrespective of the type of the object. Right now, if I sort, it first lists all the folders followed by Package. It should be sorted just like it was in the ...

Option in portal to have folders/objects for Recent, Content, My Content or custom views appear in list view by default (instead of tile view by default)

Coming from release 11.1.7 to 11.2.2 users are more used to a list view for navigating to folders, reports, dashboards, etc. Users are also used to a list view when using the legacy portal to open cubes in Analysis Studio. We would like the option...

There simply isn't an option to sort in the legacy admin portal on users in the Cognos namespace. When there are hundreds of users in a group that is unsorted it is difficult to find a user. I suggest a new sort feature be added to the glass UI. F...

We want to apply some priorities to schedules that belong to users. As admins of the system we want some users to be able to create schedules but we want to maintain the priorities of the list. If we remove the capability then the schedules always...
