Adding objects from the All Objects panel

The All Objects panel, which is a part of the Object Browser, displays a list of all folders and objects in the project to which you have access. You can locate objects such as attributes, attribute elements, metrics, prompts, and filters to add to the view filter, report filter, report grid, and so on.

* You need to know the type of prompt when deciding where and how to add a prompt to a report. For example, Object prompts are most commonly placed directly on a report, but can also be placed in the condition part of a metric's definition in the Metric Editor, depending on the type of object in the Object prompt. For a table listing where to place different types of prompts, see Adding a prompt to a report.

In the All Objects panel, both folders and objects are displayed together. Shortcuts to the My Personal Objects, Attributes, Metrics, and Hierarchies folders are available in the All Objects panel.

If DHTML is disabled, there are two separate lists in the All Objects panel: one for folders and one for objects. To open a folder, select it and click the Open button.
