Hi Rami,

Thank you for posting this in the forum and including
the screenshot.

Is this something that you've seen in the past in the view?

I'm not seeing this and don't remember seeing
a USAGE tab in the view on past builds of YF.

Please let us know.

Regards,

Kyle

Hi Rami,

David R. is still looking into this and awaiting some
feedback from our Dev team.

Thank you for your patience.

Hi Rami,

we've worked it out, when a view is freshly cloned then it will lose the Usage tab for all the fields until the fields are used in new reports. This is because each field gets a new ID when the view is cloned and Yellowfin searches on this new field ID to find out the usage of the field.

It is actually possible for Yellowfin to keep the Usage tab, Yellowfin retains the original field ID so it is possible to link from the new field ID back to the old one and then work out which reports it is used in and list them in the Usage tab. So I have created an Enhancement Request for this functionality, the Support Task ID is 187154. However, I don't have any ETA for the implementation of this enhancement request yet.

regards,
Dave
