Enable Alerts in Cognos Mobile for OLAP data sources

In the mobile app we cannot currently set Alerts on visualizations that have an OLAP data source. In our case, most of our dashboards/visualizations are currently against PA cube data sources, and we are keen to use Alerts but can't. This impedes our rollout of mobile, because users are immediately seeing Alerts that they can't use (and the error message they get is strange or misleading to them if they try to create one).

    This feature was delivered in Spring 2021. If you are using the latest version of the mobile app, you will be able to create alerts with OLAP data sources such as TM1.
