How to avoid the additional helper window when creating a report?

Hi,

this is not really an urgent topic, but it´s something I wanted to ask for an eternity.

When we create a new Report (e.g. Multilevel BOM Report), we will always get an additional empty tab that works as helper window. User have to close the window to work with Innovator again. But espcially new users often forget to close it and than are confused why they cannot use their Innovator any more.

Is it somehow possible to avoid the helper window? Or automatically close it after the report was generated?

Thanks!

  • Hi Chris,

    thanks for wasting your time trying to answer my not very accurate question! I appreciate that a lot, while I'm very sorry and a bit ashamed of myself !

    I reached a level were I assume my customization to be OOTB features. Of course standard XLST reports will open correct in a new tab! But my Multilevel BOM is an Microsoft Report Server variant. My question would have made much more sense when I would have mentioned the Microsoft SSRS background. 

    When starting a SSRS report, the report will be downloaded automatically, while at the same time the standard Report window will appear. The tab does not have any content, but it will overlay itself over the complete Innovator. 

    I assume it´s not very easy to avoid this additonal tab. But I thought it would be worth asking. It´s nothing really important, I just like small customization that help to prevent end user confusion.
