Up your BI game with Webi Intelligence 4.3 Presentation Mode! At a major mining enterprise, we’ve been using Webi since 4.2 to auto refresh a series of “live” dashboards displayed on site and python code to toggle between tabs set to opendoc links. When upgraded to 4.3, the process is as easy as 1,2,3! No special code, no special settings changes in CMC. Auto Refresh and auto tab switch, right of the box, only with Web Intelligence 4.3!
