Communicate truncated reports

The setting for Data display row limit ( applies to Exploration View, Quick Report, and list view. It also affects Custom Report. While this is a very useful feature, in case of Quick Report and Custom Report, the user is not notified at all when the limit is reached and no more rows are generated. This is already affecting users, and it is not extremely easy to see if a report was potentially truncated. Our users do not expec the Reports to be incomplete. Any hugher limit only hides the problem, and especially someone who created a report witha very high amount of rows does not expect truncated reports.

In Quick Report, the user is offered to load all items with a button.

A similar feature should be made available for Quick Report and Custom Report.

On generation, the user could be warned by a message box that the defined row limit applies (the default value is 500 rows) and the report will be truncated. The user should then be able to either

a) abort the report generation,

b) continue with the limit,

c) or ignore the limit at their own risk.

Alternatively, if the report was truncated due to the limit, the last line of the report should mention that the limit had been reached and that more data was available at the time of creation.
