Best Practices
Do Not Modify QAD Standard BI Portal Objects
Designers should not modify the original QAD Standard BI Portal objects. If you want to modify a QAD Standard BI Portal object, create new folders in the Query, Visual Items, Reports, and Dashboard sections. Copy the object to the new folder and make the modifications.
Object Description
When creating new objects, always include a description of the object.
