If you are an administrator in the Apliqo UX application then you should have access to the “Content Store Toolkit” admin app (look for the orange briefcase icon top right of screen).
- In this app go to “Application Setup”
- Assuming that metadata has already been synced you can go straight to step 3 “Setting Service”
- If metadata hasn’t been synced then follow steps 1 & 2 to first configure the syncing service. The app itself shoudl guide you through but there is more documentation here
In the setting service configuration just tick against your month dimension in the “IsUsedSettingService” field and set the default member value in the “DefaultOverride” field to the current month value.
As soon as this is done you should immediatelly see that the current month is now the default value for your month dimension in the user settings.
The way the setting service default values work is that these values will be pre-set when the user logs in. In any screen if the default element value for filter and fixed dimensions is left empty then the setting service value is used (for filter dimensions providing that the value is a member of the list that has been defined).
So if you want screens to default to current month then this is all that you need to do. (In the example above the model actually has consolidated elements called “Current Month” which just have a single child being the element that is the current month. If you don’t have this then the default member value would need to be updated each month).
Once a user selects a new value for the month dimension in a filter then the setting service value is updated and will be carried through to the next screen when navigating. If you always want a screen to start on current month (regardless of the current state of the setting service) then your best option is to select “MDX” as the list type and (assuming the current month is stored as a string value somewhere in a system cube) use MDX with StrToMember function to always derive the current month value.
