To be able to adjust all these settings, exit the preview mode and hoover over the menu and edit boxes on the top right corner of the chart. Under the menu drop down you will find the second option to Define Optional chart settings, just below the Edit content; once you press the Define Optional chart settings a new window will appear as shown in the image:

In the first column for variables you can select All to include an option and None to not include an option; or you can make a selection. When you click on a radio button to enable Select…option you will be able to press Select… and the new window will appear with option to selection Question blocks, Questions, Answers and Calculation types.

The option at the top, just below the header Variables, enables you to import Optional Chart Settings from other report or other chart. Once you press the import settings link at the top of the window, shown in the image above a new window will appear as shown below. Here you can select an existing report (within the same Project) or Chart. Depending on your selection the drop-down menu content will change.

You will notice that there is a Report level option as a last option for chart settings. If you want to have identical Optional setting on Report level for all charts, you can use optional chart settings under Filter & Setting menu and select Optional Chart settings icon as shown in the image below.

The “Optional chart settings” feature is turned on or off per StoryTeller report. Also different options of what possibilities the users will have can be defined to limit their possibility to change the charts. The following options are present (multiple selections can be done);

  • Access to changing variables
  • Access to changing Filters
  • Access to changing Time periods
  • Access to changing chart type
  • Access to All settings – (All settings = all controls shown during a regular chart setup in StoryTeller is shown for the end-user).

The settings are done on a report level and not on an end-user level. If different users should have different access it can be solved with a work-around. Create multiple reports and assign those to different users
