Performance Point Dashboard Designer for SP2010 - looking for more

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 28, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I can see how to use PPDD and so far I like it, but I'm looking for more things to do.  On a bar chart, why can't I set a goal?  On any of the graphs, how come I can't display the amount instead of having to mouse over it?

Are there any add-on's downloadable packs for it that I'm missing?  I started playing around with PowerPivot and see how much more I can do.  I also realized that I can get Dundas charting and gauges for SSRS, but not for PPDD?

Any info would be most welcome.

SharePoint 2010 - Performance Point & Dashboard Designer

We have successfully installed SharePoint 2010 onto our dev machine; we have also followed the documented steps for configuring Performance Point; http://blogs.msdn.com/b/performancepoint/archive/2009/11/24/deploying-performancepoint-2010-soup-to-nuts.aspx.  All seems fine however we do not seem to be able to create a connection from Dashboard designer back into SharePoint.  When we check the logs we get the following error Critical   An unexpected error occurred.  Error 5678.  Exception details: Microsoft.SharePoint.Upgrade.SPUpgradeCompatibilityException: There is a compatibility range mismatch between the Web server and database "WSS_Content_PerformancePoint_1", and connections to the data have been blocked to due to this incompatibility. This can happen when a content database has not been upgraded to be within the compatibility range of the Web server, or if the database has been upgraded to a higher level than the web server. The Web server and the database must be upgraded to the same version and build level to return to compatibility range. We have a farm config on a single 64 bit box and SQL Server 2008 loaded.  We have un-installed and re-installed the site collection. Does anyone have any ideas? Eddie Barrett

SSRS Report Sorting issue in Dashboard created usign Performance point services in sharepoint 2010


I have created a report in SSRS and this report is integrated within a dashboard created using performance point services in sharepoint 2010.

The report is a simple tabular report with 5 coulmns and interactive sorting is enabled on each of them.

Sorting works when the report is viewed separately but gives "Report Server Error" when I try to sort (on any column) inside the dashboard.

I have user IP instead of host name in the report server url.

Please help.

Share Point Designer 2007 Workflow (Sequential) - multi-collect data from user

I am currently building a multi-step workflow using ShrePoint designer for MOSS2007. I am getting a bit confused as to if I have an error or if I am doing something incorrect. Here is what I have going. My workflow consists of something similar to the following New document comes in, a collect data from user routine is ran and assigned to a reviewer. My understanding when I create a collect data from user WorkFlow step is any data I request is saved in the "Tasks" list. Therefore I need to grab the workflow task ID in order to later lookup what the reviewer submitted... I understand this...   However, I have one more collect data from user workflow step and I have one more item to collect. Even though this is a brand new collect data from user workflow step - does the collected data still go into the "Tasks" list? In other words, if I have two steps in a workflow and both of these steps are "collect data from user", does the data from both steps go into the same "Tasks" list?  I could see how this might be possible as long as the Task list columns contain all the items for all the different "collect" data from user steps.  I don't see two different Tasks lists representing or named "Reviewer" or "Final" or anything, so I assume the items are all in "Tasks"   However..

How to deploy dashboards made in dashboard designer to diferent site collections?

Hi I just migrated from sharepoint 2007 to 2010. We used to have performance point dashboards spread across libraries in subsites all across our primary site collection "Http://server:x" after I migrated I understand that I must migrate all performance point content to a new site or site collection made with the business intellingence template. I created a new site collection with this template (Http://server:x/sites/pps) and succesfully migrated all performance point content. Now I want to redeploy all the dashboards to their respective subsites in the  "Http://server:x" site collection so that everything looks exactly as it did when we where using SharePoint 2007. But when I try to deploy to a site I only get the option to deploy it to the ("Http://server:x/sites/pps") site collection and its respective libraries. I wish to manage all dashboard content centralized in (Http://server:x/sites/pps) but I want to deploy dashboards to libraries across  "Http://server:x" is this posible or how is Performance Point services supossed to work?   I also having trouble with DashBoard designer. I have everthing running on a Virtual Machine test enviroment. With windows server 2008 r2, 4 gb ram. Everything installed in one machine.

How do I nest dimensions in scorecards in Dashboard Designer?

I have a scorecard where I have a KPI on columns and a dimension on rows. That works fine. I can also add another dimension on rows and add it as a parent for example. The only thing I miss is a drilldown "+". What I see is basically a scorecard showing all possible rows, while I want one where I can drill down (or through) and expand rows if I want. How do I get the parent to be expandable? Thanks

Dashboard Designer: KPI's - Scoring Pattern "Decreasing is Better" returns confusing values

Good day, I started using Sharepoint a few weeks back. I jumped straight into PerformancePoint Services, and have now now gotten the hang of it, r at least I think. Far from mastering anything though. Problem is: I have a table with three fields, namely ProjectName, ProjectBudget and ProjectCost put very simply. Say for example I have these records... ProjectName ProjectBudget ProjectCost Project A 15 000 20 000 Project B 10 000 20 000 Project C 15 000 15 000 Project D 15 000 10 000 Using ProjectBudget as my Target and ProjectCost as my Actual. How can I ensure that Project A and Project B are displayed as off target, while Project C and D are displayed as on target. Lastly, the percentages that are referred to in the "Thresholds" section, what are they referring to? Please let me know, if I need to provide more info. Thank you very much.
