Session timeout warning on Web

Hello there,

MicroStrategy added a really nice feature that tells when you the web session is going to timeout, but it is disabled by default.

To enable it, just go to:

  1. Open MicroStrategy Web and go to Preferences;
  2. Choose Project Defaults;
  3. Check the “Show Warning … seconds before timeout.pic1

That is it.

Hope it helps.
God bless you!

HTML Container in MicroStrategy 10

Hello there!

I know that a lot of people are trying to use HTML Container with no success in version 10.

While using presentation mode there are a lot of tags and javascript functions that are not working properly.

I found a way to fix that issue. It’s not the best solution, because it changes the look and feel of MicroStrategy Web. But, at least it works.

You just have to:

  1. Go to preferences;
  2. Go to General and Dynamic HTML:
  3. Change the value to NO and save; pic1

Now you can test your HTML Containers.

Just let me know if that fixed all your issues with HTML Container.

Hope it helps.

God bless you!
