    IBM Cognos Analytics is a powerful AI-infused self-service analytics and operational reporting tool with a wide range of use cases - so much so that we're constantly getting questions about capabilities. If you're wondering 'Can Cognos Analytics do that?', we have a webinar series for you!

    Please join me, @Jason Tavoularis and @CHRIS MCPHERSON in this on demand recording of our LIVE Ask Me Anything webinar. Share any of your questions below and you can watch the on demand recording here.

    Thanks,
    ​​​

    I have below questions:
    1) In 11.1.7, when point over the link of the folder, there will be a little box pop up display folder name as well. Can the content in pop up box change to folder description? We'd like to give user some folder information. 

    2) Regarding Report csv output, I have a fiscal year as prompt and displayed as parameter value in the header. But not shown in the report csv output file. Meanwhile there is Fiscal Year data item in the report main query but not used in the report page. This Fiscal year data item also not displayed in the csv output. Why fiscal year is not showing in the csv output? Is there a way to set up what can be included in the csv output?

    Thank you.

    -Is it possible to make a tooltip/mouseover or something like that to show a definition of a item on the dashboard or to provide extra information regarding the (tab of) dashboard ?
    -How to use a link in a report that opens a file on a server using a file// url in stead of http//?

    Did you eventually get an answer on the status of the Cognos-GitHub integration?
