How to start editing a report on Criteria tab instead of Results tab?
By default the when you click on Edit report, you OBIEE Answers opens it on the Results tab. This triggers the report’s query execution and most of the time you want to go to the Criteria tab anyway. So it can save you some time if you change your account settings to navigate directly to the Criteria tab when editing.
Go to top right corner of the screen and click on My Account:
In Preferences tab change Analysis Editor setting to Start on Criteria tab when editing Analysis and click OK.
This setting has to be changed by each user individually. Unfortunately as of now there seems to be no way to change this setting globally.
