Prompt - Go button always refresh when clicked


when I don't change the criteria inside the prompt fields and click on the go button, it don't do nothing... I need that when i click on the button, the table and his data be always refreshed! Is anyway to do this?

Thank you all!

    What do you mean by "it don't do nothing" (which is a double negative by the way, and actually means it does something)? Is the prompt set to a presentation variable? Is your report set to receive the PV in a filter? You need to be more specific if you expect help. We are not mind readers and you do not provide enough information to attempt a reason why your prompt/report is not behaving as expected.

    My dashboard prompt has two fields to be choosen, the first one is the day and the second one is a product list. The problem is, when I choose the day and the product that I want to see and click the first time in the go button, the prompt execute the query and I see the expected results. But, if I want to execute the same query 5 minutes after, I don't need to change the fields values, I click in the go button and is no change in the data... the data in the DM is refreshed every 5 minutes. The report is prepared to receive the value of the prompt PV. Is any parameter to configure the go button behavior?

    Problem Solved, go to the advance tab and check the "Ignore Internet Cache of Siebel Analytics"

    Thank you anyway!

Also, there's the option to have the "Refresh" link displayed for every request in the dashboard ("Report Links"...).

    Refresh and prompt are two completely different things!

    My problem is that dummy users don't know the difference between the "Go Button" and "Refresh Button", to them is the same thing, but the behavior is completely different... I need the cache ON for some reports but for this one I don't...

    Thank you...
