Adding Resources to Favorites

User Favorites lets you add the repository objects using a star icon or option in the context menu. You can add the multiple objects of different types to your Favorites list in the following ways:

File Listing Page

You can add the items to Favorite in the Library page, Repository page, and Search Results page. In the Library page, you can add only Ad Hoc views, reports, and dashboards to the Favorites list, while in the Repository page and Search Results page, you can add reports, dashboards, Ad Hoc views, domains, data sources, and other files also to the Favorites list.

The following example shows you to add items in the Library page.

To add an item to Favorites using the star icon:

1. Click Library and hover over the library list.
2. Select any item from Ad Hoc views, dashboards, and reports and click the star icon to the left of the item name. The item will be added to Favorites.
3. Repeat the step 1 and step 2 to add more items to your Favorites list.

1. Click Library and hover over the library list.
2. Select a report you want to add to Favorites.
