Setting default dashboard setting across all users...

In a previous internal release, as an admin, I was able to click the 'Page Options' button, and select 'Save Selection For Others' and save the default settings (such as collapsed sections) as the default for all users thus forcing the default across all users.

A month or so later, with some significant changes to the environment, we're no longer able to access that function. It's only allowing to set my own defaults, not propagate across all users. Is this a setting somewhere that will allow developers/Admins to force default dashboard defaults on the users?

Also, we're having an issue where reports that are in collapsed sections are still issuing queries when the dashboard prompts are changed. This issue, once again, was not present in our previous release but seems to have come to light recently.

Any help would be appreciated.

    Well, in case anyone else was wondering, we figured out how to go about doing this.

    1. Save your selections for others(closed sections) in the page options.
    2. Name the saved selection something that's meaninful.
    3. Click the Edit Saved Selections and Defaults button on the bottom of the Save for Others box
    4. Move over all groups that you would like to see your saved settings.
    5. Click okay and go back to your dashboard.
    6. Go back into Page options and edit your saved selection's security features (lock icon)
    7. Put a check box next to all the groups that you would like to apply this setting as the default to.

    Happy reporting!
