  • Story Report

Reproducing the Issue

  1. When editing/running a Story report, choose Story 'Prompt' function.

  2. Change the variable to a different date.

  3. Notice widget not updating the results


It is due to the widget having a custom variables configured, which does not take Story 'Prompt' into consideration.


  1. Click on the 'Prompt' icon visible on the widget

  2. We can see that it is configured as 'Set Chart Variables'.

  3. Once, we switch it to Story Variables, the widget takes the Story 'Prompt' into consideration.

*If we are unable to see the 'Prompt' icon on the widget, it is because it is hidden. We can make it visible by clicking on the three dots to the right of the widget > Show/Hide > Chart Details > Prompts
