Retrieve attribute description to Excel Addin for MDS RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I propose a new feature:

    retrieve attribute description to Excel Addin for MDS - as separate row, which would be above attribute-row.

    This is especially useful for users - translation into other languages.

  • Do you think, it would help if we add description as comments of the column name. So user have to hover the mouse to see it?

    Also, we already have a work item to support multiple language in the model/entity/attribute name. So based on the client OS, it would show different language for the column name. But I cannot promise when we will deliver it at this moment.

  • Vincent,

    I propose to show the system name attribute and/or a description of the attributes.
    System names are useful to programmers, and a description of the attributes useful for business users.
    I suggest to make an option in settings - show / hide attributes description.
    Ok ?

  • I think what Vincent Meant is multiple language Display name for each attribute. That would solve your issue.
