Limitations of Design Studio 1.0

Example: Product costing Dashboard

1.Unable to set default start up filter values:

Start Date, End Date, Plant, PrdOrd Cost and Time Period Radio Buttons in the below figure are set to some default values but data in the chart is not displayed accordingly. Once after selecting all the values, then only chart shows the correct data for selected filter values.


2. Unable to reset filter values of other dimensions after selection of dates:

After selecting Start Date and End Date, Plant, Profit Center and Material values are not getting reset (not showing all values). In below figure, after selecting all values from all filters, chart is displaying the data accordingly. But after changing dates, it is showing the previously selected plant value and not all the list of values for Plant. We need to click on the Refresh Button on right side top after each selection criteria for resetting all the filter values for next selection.


3. No option for changing appearance of components except for ‘Text’ and ‘Panel’ component:

Example: We can change color, font style, font size only for Text and Panel Components by writing script in “CSS Style” property. This option is not available for other components like charts and radio buttons as shown in below figure.


4. Sometimes Legend of the chart is not displaying correctly according to the selected measures in the chart:

In the below figure chart id showing only 3 series of measures (Actual Cost, Plan cost for PCD & STD Cost for PCD), but 5 measure values are getting displayed in chart Legend.

      I am wondering why this is posted as this is an old version of Design Studio, dating back to November 2012

      Design Studio 1.2 is GA now with 1.3 planned for late May/June per BI 2014 conference this week

      Hi Tammy,

      You are right. Actually I am working on Design Studio 1.0 and found that these are the limitations, so posted here so that it would be helpful for other people working on these issues.

      Hi Nirupa,

      let's hope that you'll get the chance for an update soon. DS has quite evolved in the last year. You can have a look at those examples.

      ...I know how Long IE7 has been around, but this will certainly not happen to DS 1.0 🙂

      Why would you ever chose to work with the 1.0 version? That version was very very basic and I think v1.1 is the first version that is really usable in a serious environment. So ditch v1.0 and update asap!
