SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise InfoView User's Guide

Scheduling an object with Prompts or Parameters

Some objects make use of the parameters feature. Parameters prompt the user to enter information. For report objects, this information may determine what data appears in the report. For example, in a report that is used by sales, there may be a parameter that asks the user to choose a region. When the user chooses a region, the report displays the results for that specific region only.

Note: In Web Intelligence documents, parameters are called prompts.
You can set parameters on the "Schedule" page. If the object that you schedule does not contain parameters, then the Parameter option does not appear on the "Schedule" page.
