  • Available Actions - Ignore multiple filter members: if multiple members are selected on filters, these are ignored when determining which Actions to display
  • Replace null values: replaces null values with the contents of the Replace null values with text field
  • Remove nulls when drilling: if there are any null rows/columns when drilling down on a member, they will be removed so that there are no fully empty rows/columns in the report.
  • Remove 0 values when drilling: if there are any rows/columns when drilling down on a member that only contain zeros, they will be removed so that there are no zero rows/columns in the report.
  • Resize Columns after drilling: this allows a column to resize itself when drilled
  • Indent drilled members: when the user drills down on a member, they will be displayed indented
