[ENH]Mobile : Need of a version management in the user's application.

Let's imagine you have the financial report at a monthly frequency. You want to keep 12 versions of this report always with you. Normally as user you should be able to select a report in Cognos Mobile and say 'I want the March version' . As of today this is not possible so the solution is to provide a different report by month. This solution leads to 12 reports displayed in Cognos Mobile interface for the same report. Imagine that this management asks now for a new report with the same need to keep the versions. 12 more entries by year ...... a mess in the Cognos Mobile user application front end.

    Thank you for submitting this idea. At this point in time, we are not considering this feature for Cognos Analytics mobile apps. We do constantly re-evaluate our priorities, and will continue to keep this idea on file.
