  • Analytics & Reporting(Ad Hoc, YouCalc, Canvas / ORD)
    •  Online Report Designer
      • Advance Reporting

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Login into instance
  2. Edit a Canvas report
  3. Can see there are some components
  4. Go back to Report Center
  5. Run the same Canvas Report again and
  6. Now we can see a greater number of components compared to what we see when we Edit it.


Before Report center is enabled in instance, User's used to create Canvas Reports from Analytics where we used to have option to add Header and Footer to a report.

This option is not available 2540017 - Unable to find Header and Footer option in Report canvas when Report Center is enabled in Canvas reports designed from Report center page.

So, when we try to edit a Canvas report we see lesser number of components for a report created in Analytics with Header and Footer.


It is expected behavior as per design.
