I have a report with several parameters that also contains a “Go to report” action on several boxes. When I set my parameters on the main report and click through to the linked report, view the data, and then click the back button on my browser, most times (not always) the values that I selected in the parameters persist, which is exactly the behavior that I want. This allows the user to click another text box to see the “child” report based on different filtering.
However, some users have complained because they would like a few of the initial parameters to contain default values. But when I set those parameters to a default, I lose the functionality of saving the parameter values on return to the main report. (I hope I am making sense of this).
This behavior seems expected to me, but I am being pressed to find a solution, when I really don’t believe there is any.
Does anyone have any ideas? Or any links for me to prove that we will have to choose one or the other, defaults or persistence?
