    Hi all,

    For excel export reasons (see Export Data to Excel in Flattening mode for Web client ) I built a layout using the flattened presentation, with 2 entities by row (Legal Entity then Material).

    Before using the flattened option, I could drill down by clicking on my Material entity.

    Now that it's flattened, I can drill down by clicking on the Legal Entity, but clicking on the Material does nothing.

     

    Issue : 

    The ergonomics of the report is adversely impacted by the flattened presentation. It becomes less clear to the user how they can drill down.

     

    Workaround :

    Adding the entity as a block, hiding the flattened entity, then set up a drill on the block. But this has performance impacts, as mentioned by Antonio Speca.

     

    Idea:

    When the layout is flattened, allow the default drill down by clicking on any entity by row instead of the first only.

     

    Thanks,
    Etienne
